Hi guys. Been a while since I posted. A couple months back I had a slow accident up at Kinglake, light rain and gravel = written off Street Triple R. I loved that bike, I only had it for 6 weeks and we were separated too soon. My wife made me buy a car with the insurance money but now I'm looking for a weekend bike. I can't afford another Street Triple but I have found a couple of Duke690's around the 6-7k mark. This bike ticks all the fun hooligan boxes that I need but I don't know much about the reliability of the big single engines. What I've read it seems like anything, if they're looked after they will last. But I imagine this type of bike has usually been ridden pretty hard. The two bikes i've found are approaching the 30k km mark both are 2009 models. Any opinions or advice is welcome.
