Hey guys, wanted to post up my review on my new bike. I have been a keen dirtbiker since the age of 5. Haven't owned a pure road bike before (last bike was Suzuki DR650 - I rode from Colombia to Argentina over seven months). Mainly have had dirtbikes my whole life. So decided it was time to get a road bike, something I could ride my jobs on and also have some fun on the weekend. The decision for me was really easy, first store I went to got addicted to the Street Triple. Took it for a test ride and yes, had to buy one. For me the Street is powerful enough but would like to have a ride on a Speed Triple one day. Saved for four months and then picked up the bike on Saturday. When I started it up I was in love, this bike sounds so damn sexy. I got the black and red on (see the attached pic). Noticed it was extremely easy to ride, can't wait to do the HART Advanced riding course and do some track days. Road bikes are new to me so I'm taking it easy. The bike revs up to 14,000 rpm, have only pushed it to 8,000 rpm and yep its breathtaking. I thought the bike would be a 8 out of 10 before I bought it. Now I have ridden it its a 9.5 out of 10. You may ask why this is why: Looks - just love the style of this bike (I have a thing for nakedness) Sound - pure horn, like the standard exhaust but Arrow slip on is coming Brakes - this thing stops on a dime Performance - its scaring me up in the higher rev range can't wait to learn to be able to push it to its limits All in all I'm very happy. In four days I have done 700km, first service at the end of the week. Can't wait to really test it out after it has been properly broken in. Keen to go for another ride, bye!!!
