Now that I know this works

I'll finish posting the thread. my Trophy 1200 showed up after a 10 day wait from mississippi, It is everything that I expected and then some. The bike will run 75 comfortably and hang out with the cruisers but when You want it It runs right up to 150 plus. It has a very easy 100-110 cruising speed in sixth gear of about 5.5k it hits the twisties like a sport bike but You can still sit up on It. ( if this posts I'll try pics next)

Very nice!

How come you didn't wait until 2003? Rumor is a new Trophy is coming. Did you get a screaming deal on this one?

UFO, the rumoured New Trophy 1300 shaft drive, I think is Just That. I've heard that the Trophy won't have any significant changes until at least 04. Even if They made a heavy Tourer out of the new model I don't think that thats what I wanted. I got out of My 98 H-D FLTR to get a light weight chain driven bike. I wanted a close relitive of my Daytona that had luggage and could pack 2 up comfortably and this bike seems to fit the bill. Yes I also got a screamin deal on it right at 10k with the top box, staintunes, corbin seat, throttle meister, and all of the little Triumph goodies. Thanx for the compliment.

Roaddog, If You get a chance To ride one DO IT. It's probably the most underrated bike I've ever had. It's nimble fast and comfortable.
