I assume your Trophy is female ?  .....

She's so rock steady, bam-a-lam
And she's always ready, bam-a-lam      :152:

Hi timebak and :400: to the Forum !

That's a really interesting story - thanks for sharing.   :028:

Will the Dealer allow you to take a Test Ride on the Trophy they have ?

If so that will answer many of the questions you may have, and if you take your wallet with you,
then it's likely you will paying a Deposit as soon as you finish the Test Ride !

If there are any questions remaining after a Test Ride, you'll probably find the answers here.  :169:
( If not just start a New Topic, or ask a question in one of the current Topics ).

The Trophy is a fantastic machine, but ( like most Makes ) has had its share of problems,
the majority of which have since been addressed by Triumph.

You may be interested in this Topic that I pulled together from various Member's observations :
What to look for when Buying a Pre-Owned ( Used ) Trophy SE

Please also be aware, that just like any Forum, you will find lots of information about faults
and probems that Owners have had, and this can give a false impression -
the majority of Trophy Owners have Zero or very few problems at all,
but those are usually the ones that we don't hear from, as they have no need
to join a Forum just to tell everyone how happy they are !

As far as Forums go, this is definitely one of the most friendly and useful you will come across.  :001:

Keep us updated with your progress !  :152:

Cheers  :821:

I have to admit I have never tried rocking my Trophy off the centre stand while sitting on it - Yet !

I always stand alongside it and rock it backwards slightly then forwards,
with the side stand down, and in 1st gear with the clutch held in
and ready to be released as a brake if needed -
while consciously pulling the bike towards me as it comes off the stand,
and then rest it onto the Side stand before climbing on and riding away.

I don't yet have a hydraulic table lift for maintenance, but if and when I get one
I will look at building raised platforms alongside to help when riding onto the lift,
and getting it on and off the centre stand.

I'm currently free on 11th May and hope to be there for 11:00 Hrs,
unless it's really stupid weather !

At a previous "Motorcycle Live!" event I was given a Group Discount offer
for the National Motorcycle Museum, - which they have kindly extended,
reducing the Admission price from 9.95 down to 5.00 each - if we all go in together.  :152:

How many Trophy Forum Members are going ?

I remember reading somewhere that Iridium allow isn't as good an electrical conductor as copper
so may run hotter, although Iridium alloy used in Spark Plugs does last slonger than copper !

Can't remember where I read it, and it could have been B.S. !

Can't say I've heard of anyone on the Forum reporting a similar issue.

I notice the box in the background of your Image is for Iridium Spark Plugs ?

Have you been using Iridium Plugs ?

Iridium Plugs are more likely to overheat and not perform as well
as standard Copper Plugs, although they may last longer !  :084:
