A funny comment from you but likely very true.  Good one.  Don't forget the 1st aid kit to so you can render aid to other travelers in need.

Exports?

@ DoomedDog – Well, if Triumph is aiming this bike at the US/Canada export market, they would do well to increase their dealer network so one could warranty service, parts, etc without having to live in a city of 1 million plus or travel hundreds of miles round trip (I can ride over 4 hours in any direction without getting to a Triumph dealer).

Evolution

I am starting to get a little fed up people saying it looks like a BMW. Basically, if you take the post 1996 Trophy and put it along side a Pan of the time, it could be argued that designs are similar. The design works and comparing the 1996 Trophy to the new 2012 Trophy, you can see the "blood" line! It just has evolved from 90s technology to that of the 21st century! Acutally, the only problem I have is the lack of British Racing Green! Naughty naughty Triumph, you should have known better!

I will order mine once I have finished paying my Sprint GT off!

It looks like a cross-eyed 1200RT. Or a shocked owl.

sigold1983!

Well, I was there in Austria last week when it was unveiled, and I've photographed it and sat on it and Yes, it looks like a cross between a Pan European and a BMW except it weighs 40kg more than the BM. Its well built, has a low seat, (I'm 28" inside leg and I could reach the floor!) and I'm sure it will sell, but I went there on my new Tiger 800 and I wouldn't swop it for anything, it performed brilliantly and weighs 100kg less. Of course, what will the Trophy be like fully loaded and 2 up? The top box on the SE is double skinned and looked to weigh a ton on its own! You have to ask yourself what you really need for touring.

Fit for purpose

I suppose it has to look a bit like a BMW as it's designed to do the same thing! I ride a 1200RT and don't really care what it looks like. I can do 500 miles in a day if I need to and it carries luggage for two and keeps me dry. If I could afford the Trophy I'd certainly give it a try. My BMW, despite being a great bike to ride, has been unreliable and is poorly finished. I previously owned a Sprint ST for five years that gave absolutely no trouble and looked pretty good when I sold it. Hopefully some competition will provoke BMW into improving their quality control.
