Any Other New Owners

Been reviewing the various threads and wondered if there are any new owners other than TROM100 out there; either with their bike now or with one on order?

It would be interesting to see how many bikes have been sold so far; maybe by country?

Other Motorcycle: 2012 Suzuki Wee-Strom
I'm on the list for one of the first Trophies to arrive in Knoxville, Tennessee. But the dealer is not able to provide a date yet.

I was riding a Gold Wing until it was killed by a deer. I have a Suzuki Wee-Strom to hold me over until the Trophy arrives.

I made the commitment for the Trophy without ever seeing one in person. I've been looking for a smaller touring bike that lets me sit upright for taking in the sights. I ride solo, so I don't need the premium passenger accommodations that come with a Wing. I have been encouraged by the reviews for the new Triumph. My choice came down to the BMW RT and the new Trophy. I like the commitment Triumph is making with this bike, so I went for it.

It's a bit of a risk to spend this much money without a test ride. I bought a Honda ST1100 without a test ride many years ago. That turned out to be the best bike I ever owned.

. Oddly enough I've purchased a bunch of Triumphs since 2006 without a test ride and they've all exceeded my expectations...the two I did take for a ride Speedmaster and 675 Street Triple I didn't like...glad I didn't buy them....

You will love your new Trophy....I have nice 08 Gold Wing but he doesn't get much use....

I make that TWO orders placed

So it would seem that at least two of us have placed orders; one here in the UK and one in the US. There must be more out there?

On the test ride. I test rode the SE on the 6th November the week following the launch. Other that it was a fantastic ride, comfortable, good protection from both the fairing and screen, it was raining the day I had the bike, I could not wait to get mine ordered (oh and I thought the audio system was brilliant as well).

TennesseeSmith you will love it!!

If you're in OZ then you'll get yours first- the first shipment to Australia is silver only, so I have been told yesterday.

No one is sure when the blues are coming, and the wife says "Blue Only!"

Hi Wessa, Know the feeling, I ordered mine in October here in Brisbane , Australia. It arrived this week, took it for a test ride on Saturday, can only say that you will not be dissapointed with your wait . All the reviews are very accurate about how good it is.
Picking mine up on Friday 4th January, so hope to be the first to have one on the road here in Brisbane, will let you know how it all goes cheers EUJIE
