Triumph Trophy - General Chat / New 2015 To Me
« on: September 29, 2020, 02:05:12 am »
Well I had a little accident in May I broke my left ankle &  wrist and Totaled my 2014 Trophy with 40821 miles.

I put all but 7 miles on it.

My Trophy was a Great Bike so much so two weeks after my surgery I was at the Dealer in Fort Worth TX to see the Trophy they had.
I think they knew they had a sale, I was on crutches looking at a Slow Blue Trophy😎

Iím a Traveler ďmainly to the eastĒ and just donít see how I could do without another Trophy!

Thought Iím not up to my jump on and go for a 1000 mile easy ride Iím counting the days to just that.

Iím not sure why the Trophy appeals to me so much, but Iím sure I will find people that never got to know their Trophy and I will have to buy them till Triumph finds a way to  promote their product..

A 1600 SE to kick the bmw that the Trophy was always  compared to as the 1200 baby was not up to the task. 

All I want to do is ride and see the road,, 24 states and counting.

Events, Meetings, and Ride Outs / Summer 2021 GTG With The Twisted Trophies

Okay letís get Started!!

With some input it looks like people are wanting to go to the south western corner of South Dakota,, Black Hills National Forest , Custer State Park and Wind Cave National Park.
All of this is just miles from Rapid City SD.

Now the time line.
The 4th of July is a busy time for travel and lodging.

So letís say we use the week of June 13th to 19th as the closest before the 4th and July 11th to July 19th as the closest after the 4th.

Then thereís August the first part as the nearer we get to September weather could be a factor. :821:

On Two Wheels - Bikers Chat / Goodbuy to My Silver Trophy
« on: May 31, 2020, 07:12:30 pm »
Well here it goes,,,,,,,,,,, May 2nd I was headed to West Texas and had only made it to Fort Worth on I-30 when it happened. :172:

I was cruising along when I looked into my rearview mirror and a pickup was gaining on me fast so I moved over to let them pass I had my cruise control on between 60-65 mph as the truck passed there was a car behind him I moved over behind the car just as I got in behind the car the pickup made a jerking move to the right lane cutting off another car ,, the pickup had blocked the view of the car and of myself that the lane was closed he almost hit a drum in the road the car slammed on his brakes I did also but could not stop in time and hit the cars rear bumper.

The driver of the car was ok.
The police officer did not issue any tickets as the road construction did not give notice of lane closure the officer told me.
Pickup driver was long gone.

That leaves my Trophy I went down on the left side and the damage is just $10,000.
From what I have seen is on line 2014's are going from $7500 to $8500 I will see what they offer.
My insurance is drawing out the process and wants to devalue everything,  the problem with that most of  gear was newer due to my size going up,, I working on losing it, don't worry.

I lost my Go-pro in the accident also.

I broke my left ankle and left wrist had it not been for my Joe Rocker Jacket and Pants Good boots and Schuberth helmet and gloves it would have been a lot worse.
My doctor put me back together a few weeks ago on May 11th so now the recovery time.

I will say that here in Dallas "European Cycle Sports" Derek and Jake helped me a great deal getting parts I did not want to sell to the insurance company off my Trophy.

Fort Worth "Eurosport Cycle" Martha helped me with buying a 2015 Trophy and yesterday and will have it delivered to me so I can start the putting my old parts on.

We have two of what I think must be some of the best Triumph dealers around.   

My New Trophy is Blue and I have been told it's the fastest color "Trophied" but as I'm 2slow my Silver Trophy was fine by me.

This is to help those that did not want to find the dates in "Big Bend late this fall or early winter".

 We will ride in and around Big Bend National Park it's a Great area to ride and it's open for riders to just meet for a day or two or more due to ride times getting there.
When I say around the area ,,,, well its a few hundred square miles but the roads are fun.

The weather is not bad this time of year.
 
Best part is you can put a face to the names like ""2slowTrophy"" I'm the one in the far back,,,,, Ha Ha  :164:

After all we have to get in some practice before Coconut comes over In September of 2020 for our ride so we can show that we people from the people that ride on the Right side of the road can Ride.!!! :008:
