Temporarily a non-wing owner- new bike!
So, some might remember that I got rear-ended back in August. As the spousal unit and I will not do any major touring for a few years (I am eligible to retire in 2, probably going to do so in 7) we decided to go different for now. This bike is still very comfortable and quiet, even for a passenger. Good weather protection. LOTS of performance and goodies! Bike has plug ports for rider and passenger for heated gear, XM, Bluetooth, electronic suspension, ABS/traction control, etc. And a warranty! We will get another Wing near retirement time so I plan to stay active here. The new bike is a new 2015 Triumph Trophy SE. My trunk kit should arrive this Wednesday. The fact that I also average 45-55 mpg is a bonus. Anywho, here it is...
