What I Did To My Trophy SE Today

I searched but didn't see a thread. The Trophy SE forum seems a little dead, like most online forums I'm a member of. Anyway, I'll start. I updated my radio firmware today, then put 200 miles behind me,then washed. Feels great to get out on the road after the long winter.

One of the great performing and most comfortable long distance touring machines made, I had a 2013 silver TTSE. Unfortunately Triumph came out with it a little too late when traditional sport touring machines starting losing ground to the latest rage, Adventuring touring machines that now has pretty much taken over the market. You'll find more activity with the TTSE on this TTSE site specific forum. Triumph-Trophy.com When I owned the Trophy, I was a member of both forums, they're both great.

I am also on both forums. I have owned mine for 1 1/2 yrs and have done nothing to it but tires. It is now due for its 30k service. In my neck of the woods there is no winter to speak of and I ride year round. As a matter of fact I just switched to my mesh jacket as temps are in the 80's to 90+

Last night I clean the bike and installed new shoes, getting her ready for next trip.

I'm jealous, I have a friend that live in your area. Parumph actually, and he is always bragging about the good weather for riding.

Just got back from a long weekend riding the Ozarks. Today was cleaning up the camping gear. Tomorrow will be a wash and wax.

Yes, the noise went away after a good wash, now it seems to be working fine. Odd! Maybe it was some dirt from the Big Bend after all.

Before a week long ride through North Carolina sponsored by the Michigan Sport Touring Riders, I installed a mount for a Zumo 395LM. Downloaded 20 different routes that were made available through the club. Great accessory when one is riding in new territory.
