    If the dewdads on the Trophy aren't that important to you, and you're primarily going to be riding solo, then go for Sprint. If this bike is going to be doing a lot of two-up duty, then the Trophy is likely your ticket.

    Just watch out, the triple is ADDICTING.

    Yes it is. I'm on my second one and the Trophy very well may be my next. Curious to see how it does in the long term reports.

    Sat on one at NYC bike show. Just don't like the bulk / width of the front end on these bikes (and the RT etc) so i guess not for me.

    That's the price for that level of wind protection.

    The problem with the Sprint is the riding position. When I sit on the GT it feels like I am doing pushups and eating my knees. It is just too agressive. Otherwise there would be one in the garage right now.

    The Trophy riding position is closer to the Tiger than the Sprint. Very comfy. If you want to munch miles in comfort and style, the Trophy is the ticket.

    Funny, I owned a '99 VFR800 for three years, loved it and toured everywhere. Sold it about 10 years ago due to knee problems. Sat on one the other day and it felt exactly like your description. Now I wonder how I ever rode it. :rofl

    Bars are an easy enough mod. I wouldn't let that stop me if I wanted a bike. Risers and such are easy to do.

    True enough, but if you like an upright position, the sprint would need something like 6" of pullback. Not quite so easy :)

    The sprint ST is even worse - I was more comfortable on a speed triple.

    The Sprint GT I am looking at has the LSL bar conversion which widens and pulls the bars back and up an inch or so.
    I really like the bike and I have friends with old BMW R1100RS's and they say that being "down and out of the wind" makes a long ride more comfortable. Hmmm. I am really wanting this bike since the price of a 1050 triple in a usable sport/touring package is so affordable right now. It just seems like a lot of bike for the money. Is that type of bike just obsolete now?
