I've always wanted to say that about a bike. This will be my first. Combined with the 16k miles I put on a 98 Executive, and the 45k miles I put on a 99 ST I think it's safe to say I really enjoy my Hinkley Triumphs Sport touring, weekend sportbike chasing, a few trackdays, we get to do a lot of fun things.

93k on a sprint! Very cool man, i said it again. Triumph is a great dependable and reliable bike. Wow! Post some pics because all of us enjoy seeing 100k motorcycles.

Not a Triumph, but this is my friend's K1200RS. He's got over 100K on it; right now he is doing another 4 Corners ride (his fourth, I think).

Any of you Triumph riders ever pulled a trailer?

I saw some 1200 Trophys at a good price but I need to pull a trailer. Probably not a good one for trailers right?

I can't see why not. It's got PLENTY of HP and torque and it's got enough weight to not get shoved around. If it's a reasonable sized trailer I wouldn't sweat it.

The Trophy is a little top heavy but the engine is awesome. I had a 1200 Daytona and it pulled like a freight train.

2002 CE, had 4000 miles when I got it a month ago, have put 1500 miles on it since then exploring all around Phoenix. This pic was taken last weekend east of Prescott.

I picked this up on Tuesday after trading the GS. Only took 5 weeks to get here when I was hearing horror stories of 6-month deliveries elsewhere (riding season is short over here)

My initial impressions, of my first Triumph, are very positive. Sorry, it hasn't done 100k but has done 122miles





I'm going to remove the rear foot rests to enhance that open wheel look. Mind you, the foot rests look beautiful so I might hang them on my wall

hey! I had a trumpet for awhile too!

95 thunderbird - never back talked. Sold it to my brother in-law so I could still get a chance to ride it.
