Triumph Trophy SE

Knee-draggers and hopeless adrenaline junkies needn't take the geriatric route on long-distance rides. Though plenty of touring bikes offer armchair-like levels of comfort, the sportier Triumph Trophy SE squeezes 132 horsepower from its screaming three-cylinder powerplant, while maintaining a civilized, upright riding posture. Electronically adjustable suspension, cruise control, an integrated stereo system, and available heated grips and seats make this a long-haul motorcycle that also happens to haul ass.
