Go for it Joshua, and don't worry about the Street Triple R, i've ridden one and they are great bikes but haven't got the versitility or personality of the 955. I own a 2012 Thruxton (just purchased) and an 04 S3. I love the Thruxton because i can ride it quick in the twisties but don't have to ride at blistering speeds all the time. That said, the S3 955 is the best all round road bike i have ever owned (and i've owned around 20 of em), it is a great bike in the twisties, i can tour on it no problems, pop it on the back wheel no worries. It has so much torque that you can ride around GSXR's in the hills and it is comfortable all day (one or two up) if you like travelling. It has great brakes, great handling etc, etc. It made my previous 05 Kawasaki Z100 feel like a 2 wheel truck in comparrison. I don't think i could ever sell mine, no matter what else i buy. Oh yeah, if you do want to do long trips, the only mod that is worth the money is to re-upholster the seat with better foam, cost me $80, looks the same but is soooooo compfy.
