My New Trophy ! June 9, 2012

I grabbed a airport shuttle at 5:00am from Prescott Arizona to Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix. At 8:50 flew to John Wayne Airport in Orange California. At 10:15 took a taxi to Irv Severs BMW in Orange California & picked up my new 2012 BMW F800GS Trophy and started my drive back home to Prescott at 1:00pm. I pulled into my driveway at 11:10pm. The bike was great! I can't think of a better way to break in a new bike and get the feel of the road. I'll add some pictures if someone can tell me how?

Beautiful Bike

[QUOTE= Thanks for the picture upload info Freakhead[/QUOTE]

You're welcome!

Hope to add one of these to my fleet next year. If there are no new colours/packages for next year that catch my eye, I hope they still have the Trophy package.

Keep taking photos! Safe travels.

I saw a trophy running around the Billings, MT area with local plates on it last weekend.

So that is 3 800's in town now that I know of!

Picking mine up tomorrow. Added TT engine guards and BMW ADV cases. I've had an 800 for over a year now so I'm familiar with the bike. This is my fire replacement model. Will miss my old broken in bike, but like this one too. Breaking in over the summer.

Got mine today... It didn't even make it to the show room floor with a sold tag on it... Less than 24 hours, it went from crate to the trailer. I had to wait for the Tech to finish assembling it.

Bike looks great ! As a new Trophy owner there are so many choices of add-ons. Can you tell us about your adds and why you chose them. I'm really interested in what should be first priority. Crash bars, tires, exhaust, etc... Thanks for your wizdom. Marshall
