New to me 1998 Trophy 1200

Viper57
Hi everyone

Picked up a 1998 Trophy 1200 last weekend - its in fantastic mechanical condition. Has a few scrapes on the LHS fairing/pannier - looks like from a tip-over when stationary. I am in the process of gettng a few quotes to have the panels resprayed.

looking forward to lots of advice/tips from everyone on the forum!!

Cheers
Gary

Hi Gary
First bit of advice, 
DELAY painting the panels for a while... 
these bikes are top heavy,   get used to it first.... then paint it. you may save money :)
Enjoy your Trophy... 
best wishes Joan

Hi Gary,
You're going to love your bike.
Left-side scratches may happen when the rider forgets to visually check that the kickstand is down before getting off.  It's nearly impossible to stop the bike from going over once you lean 15+ degrees past where it would rest on the kickstand.
Happened to me once.  Now, I always do a visual check on the kickstand.
