I've owned my 2013 Trophy SE since it first became available thru my dealership in January 2013. It replaced a Kawsaki Concours-14 that had 63K on it when I crashed it in August 2012. I ordered my Trophy in October 2012 after reading reviews in the British Bike
magazine. It now has 75K miles after making two major tours around North America in 2013 & 2014, along with several shorter trips outside Florida. I found the bike to be reliable and comfortable on long trips, after replacing the stock saddle with Triumph's Comfort Seat.
As for "loving" the bike, I can't say that I've ever loved a piece of machinery since it can't respond in kind. I appreciate the technology, design and implementation of this and my previous bikes. I've also never given a bike a name as some riders do.
I was certainly excited about this bike when I read about its various features, in particular cruise-control and electrically adjustable suspension. If Kawasaki had deigned to implement c/c on their 2013 Concours-14, I might have bought that instead after being a Kawi rider since 1973.
At the end of 2014 I decided that I wanted to get a bike that would be suitable for off-road riding and selected the BMW R1200GS Adventure, but kept the Trophy. This summer I made a tour to Alaska on the GSA and was glad on several occasions that I'd not ridden the Trophy there since it would have restricted my routes too much due to the limited ground clearance.
Not being a cruiser rider, as you apparently are, I would be hard-pressed to appreciate the F6B, Harleys, or the T-Bird and the often minimalist windscreens. It's obviously a different clientel that buys those bikes, compared to Sport-Touring bikes.
If you haven't already done so, I suggest that you visit the forum on Triumph-Trophy.com
. There is much more activity there than on this forum and you would presumably find some Trophy-lovers there who may give you responses more to your liking.
Good luck with whatever you select. Ride Safe!
