Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Re: A Trophy clone???

There's also the well equipped CF Moto 1250 to consider with a KTM 1290 engine detuned some.  Not surprising since they already build the 700 and 800 size engines for KTM anyway.

I don't see why not.  Any dual USB that will fit in a standard cigar lighter opening with spade connectors for power to it would work.  Leave the switch on when you remove the glove box and the USB port is easily unplugged and removed from the box.  Should be very easy to do.  I put a dual USB port in the top box instead of the cigar lighter and found that a charger cord or USB adapter with a removeable front end on it and a large rubber "fender washer" put on it will remove the socket very easily.  Push it into the socket, give it a slight tug and the springy plastic tabs that hold the socket in place will give enough for it to come right out and connect the wiring to a USB port and push it into place.

The newer tractor trailers are a LOT more aerodynamic than the old ones and do not generate as much turbulence around them.  Especially the trailers with the skirts underneath them.  I passed a lot of them on the trip to North Carolina two weeks ago and there was a substantial difference when passing/being passed by the newer trucks.

Even if they copied the Trophy to the last detail it wouldn't necessarily be such a bad thing.  At least we might have replacement parts for a while longer!  :062:

Some interesting things happening in the motorcycle world.  Not a fan of Chinese products in general, but they are willing to step in and fill a void left by less interested manufacturers at times.
