I sure hope you're correct. I see my wife as my best friend and simply don't like to go places or do things without her.

I'm not pushing for the Trophy until my 60th B-day in May of 2014 though. That gives: us more time to save for it, Triumph time to offer more colors, work out first year problems, come up with low interest financing, and for me to get her going again. I think the advent of more of her family members getting into the niche is going to be my ace in the hole for having her on the back seat again.

My wife rode with me before we got married. She now won't get on it. She did take ONE ride on my previous bike, a 2005 Tiger 955, and said it was uncomfortable and had no interest in ever riding with me again. The notion of her getting the MSF training and her own bike was dismissed by her without a second of thought, and the subject will NOT be revisited (according to her.)

No worries though. While I'd appreciate her company, we've been married almost 32 years and she knows I'm going off a ride every weekend as I always have and will.

Cruisn, good points on waiting on the Trophy.
Having the power windshield on the Vision really spoils you and I'm glad to see the Trophy is offering it.
It may sound ridiculous, but you'd be surprised how often you use it.

I hear ya, I've been driving an R1100RT since November of 2001; the power shield is really quite nice, along with the outstanding weather protection from the rest of the fairing.
