New Purchase - '99 Trophy 900

Having parted with my Bonneville earlier this year I knew that I wouldn't be Triumph-less for too long. So agreed a deal on a '99 Trophy 900 (silver) today

It has 17k on the clock, very well maintained and just what I was looking for (it currently lives half a mile from my house although I've never noticed it before!). I was surprised at how light they are (well, anything's light compared to my FJR) and I think that I could have fun touring on this bike.

At least I know my way around the forum

Pics to follow once I collect the bike.

It's certainly one of the best colours, it looks like nothing else and that original triple is a gem! I'll look forward to seeing the pictures

Congrats on the new scoot lad. You'll definitely find the added performance (compared to the Bonnie) a big plus. I have a '97 that I've owned since new, and have owned two different 'modern classic' Bonnie variants (a Thruxton and a Scrambler). The Trophy is only 20cc larger in displacement; but has close to 90% more power. Sold both of the Bonnie variants, still have the Trophy.

Congrat's, just picked up my 98' 1200 a couple of weeks ago. I'm hoping for a smooth long term relationship. Put about 150 miles on her just riding home....so much better than hauling a bike home

You did good. The 900 Trophy is a great choice.

Picked it up today, a bit dusty, but sound.

Fairings will be coming off at the weekend and then the clean up starts!

I know what you mean about the power difference,I had a 07 Scrambler and it just didnt have the needed urge to get down the road,my 1200 Trophy doesnt lack a bit for go-power.
Those twin shock bikes look neat and all but the 1200 is way smoother through bumps.

Well, I thought that my bike was silver but it looks more like a champagne gold after giving it a good clean up. Back in the garage it looks more silver again

Oh well, it's nice whatever colour it's meant to be
