2013 Trophy- any comments from new owners yet?

G'day from OZ, has any of our international riding friends taken delivery yet? I've got dibs on a new one and hoping to have by new year....

Curious to hear your thoughts? Mods? Options?

I've got one
I test rode the silver one on November 1st and was so impressed that I took delivery of mine on December 1st.
A lovely midnight blue one.
Mine is the SE version and has the following fitted.
Heated grips
Heated rider & pillion seats
Radio
TPMS
Full luggage
GPS bracket (to be fitted in February) as the part is not available till then. But I may not bother
I have done nearly 500 glorious miles and just got it back from the dealership after its first 500 mile service.

Niggles
Screen got stuck twice, it refused to go up, they rebooted the computer and all is well.
Cubby box will not lock, a new one has been ordered on warranty as the lock was getting stuck half way...
I appear to have a e x t r e e m l y slow puncture. No sign of any ingress by a foreign body or the valve leaking.. Grrrrr

Everything else W O W great bike love love love it.
I can balance on the rear brake down to about 2 mph the weight whilst it is moving just seems to magically disappear, I don't know how it just does.
If you can afford it buy one.

I found it great in all weather and easy to fling about.
I can filter as easy as anything, although with the side panniers it makes it a lot harder.
I have managed to balance on the rear brake a lot easier than on my Tiger.
My wife has even agreed to come for a ride due to the comfy pillion seat.

To all the guys at North City Triumph Chadwell Heath a big thanks.

I tour Scotland twice a year and visit my son in Cornwall minimum once a year plus I ride every day of the year to work, no matter what the weather.
