Smile Hi, Trophy Owner

Hi
I have bought a 1998 Trophy 1200 with full service history and 37k miles. I plan to ride it to Spain this summer.

If anyone can spare the time I would value any advice on what to look for, what to carry with you when travelling with one of these bikes and any sensible improvements to make. Also I am missing a std toolkit if anyone has one...not sure where they are on the bike but cant find one!

I have a 1982 Yamaha xz550, love it, bit quirky but a hoot to ride. I have had numerous bikes eg several suzuki gt750, gs550, Honda CBX1000, CBX550, CB550F2, CX500, Kawasaki KZ1000MK2, 750e, GPZ550,KH400, Yam LC350x2, plus others and several enduro bikes as I used to do a bit of off road competition riding.

Main hobby now is sprinting an old Porsche in the UK Club championship, an old 924 with a US supercharger fitted ....goes very well!

Cheers
Simon
