At $18,999 With ABS, Freight and set-up it should still be under $20k.
Okay. I stand (sit) corrected.
Nonetheless, still a major price difference.

Dan wasn't too far off now was he ?
Nope.
Not too far, Mike.

You heard it here first, DAKEZ is selling Trophies from his shop for 'well under $20k' out the door.

Head to Portland and take him up on it.

Plan a Fly and buy. Right now there are two available but I'll pick you up at the Airport, provide a room at the Oxford suites and get you on your way. (no sales tax in Oregon)

So as not to pollute this place with spam... Send me a PM.

If my experience is any guide, you'll get used to the riding position pretty quickly and actually learn to like it a lot. As long as there's room for your knees and not too much kink in your neck or weight on your wrists, it's a pretty neutral stance that takes a load off your lower back.
I love the Trophy from what I've seen of it and want to ride one soon.
But don't discount the Sprint GT. You may just fall in love with it.

At 11k ( I can get a slightly used version with 2k worth of do-dads on it for 10k) its a heck of a lot of bike. I am going to ride another Sprint GT this weekend and if I like it I am pulling the trigger. Its got a phenomenal motor and a classic sport touriing set up with great bags for a great price. Under-rated ( although and another post says .." MSN gave it 4 1/2 stars") and undersold bike that is discontinued here in the US. I figure I'll ride it for a couple of years and trade it in on the Trophy when the mania dies off..

Heh. I guess I used the wrong term.

As I approach 40 I seem to be having a reverse mid life crisis. Instead of loud, impractical motorcycles I find myself drawn to things like ABS, traction control and low maintenance. Its a sad state of affairs, truly.

You do know that you don't have to include the picture when you quote right?

But if you like the Tri-Glide so much send me a PM... I'll hook you up.

posting before coffee is unfair to some =)

Also, not a huge fan of the way the ultra trikes handle. Used to build them when I worked at a dealership and never could get into them.

The GT is a phenomenal bike. It's the perfect bridge between a sportbike and a FJR/C14/etc. At the MSRP they are a good buy, at the current discounts they are a STEAL!

You didn't by chance pick that up at MCC in Villa Park did you ? I was in there a couple of weeks ago and they had a blue one sitting on the floor with a sold sign on it.

Life Cycle in Kalamazoo. He picked it up the same day I picked up my new Tiger.

You were there? What did you buy? If I remember you were loading on a trailer in a parking lot east of me?
