Please introduce yourself here!

New to the Street Triple forum? Post here to say "hi" so we can all get acquainted.

If you are also new to the bike itself and have what you might consider newbie questions, you might want to review the New Members Questions thread. If you have questions that aren't answered there, there's also lots more information available elsewhere in this forum.

One good reference is the Recurring Topics thread, which indexes (and links) the most popular threads in the entire forum for easy access.

Hi all,

Just got my new Street Triple. After a raz around the local roads this morning it's now started to rain ...want to do only dry miles to start with so have come in and found this forum. Nice one.

I passed my test about three weeks ago so frighteningly new to this game. The bike is great and very easy to ride. Although the throttle is quite lively which has taken me by surprise a couple of times so many more miles under the belt to go before I'm totally comfortable. If there is anyone in the UK (or visiting) in a similar position let me know.

Cheers.

Deposit place!!

Well, after some thought and extensive research, I finally decided on the Street Triple. I called the local dealer today to talk to them about the meeting in England last week and all the new offering for '09. After some discussion I found out that they had one Street arriving in a week or two. I asked if there was any way that I could buy into that one, but you guessed it, it is sold. He did go on to say that he has a few more coming in by the end of summer and that if I put a deposit down now I would be the first on the list for the next arrival. I DID and I can't wait.

Thanks to this site and all the contributions that helped make my decision relatively easy.

If it ain't dutch, it ain't much...

Just kidding people

I'm new to the 'Triumph' scene, have been riding Honda and Suzuki sofar, and now my girlfriends Hornet (Honda599) is going to be traded in for a Street Triple R. Fortunately she loves riding my Hornet 900 (919) so the Street will be our new play bike.

Can't wait till our next trip to the eifel in germany, were we can ride to the fullest in the beautifull landscape and on the nordschleife. :

Hey Folks,

New member here - (can't you tell by the smiles )

Recieved a St3 (black) on Saturday. What a moment! Enjoyed a couple of short spins on it - Although my 3rd bike, its been a few years, and I was amazed at how easy the bike made me feel. Too easy, a detour led me on some twisties I shouldn't have been on just yet - but great fun.

It was about a two month wait after the deposit, but judging by the posts in the forum, thats not too bad.

Looking forward to chatting with all of you.

Thumbs up Hi all. New member.

Just joined this forum and it seems to have all the answers.
I have just bought a 2005 Speed Triple 1050 having traded my Street Triple 675, have a done the right thing or will i miss the more light weight of the Street Triple?
Before i collect my 1050 is there anything special you can advise me to check out when i collect or are they as unbreakable as people say. Thanks Deanooooooooo

decisons, decisions!

Hi all
I turned 40 earlier this year and husband bought me a bike (in theory - was on sale or return)! (I used to ride a CBX 550 years ago). Having test ridden just about everything (honda hornet, fazer, kawasaki er, and new ducati monster 696 the Triumph outshone them all!!
Now all i have to decide is colour of current model or whether to hang on and get the R?? Its getting good write ups, but is it worth the extra money - (lots more once you have the screen and belly pan on)
Any advice from those more knowledgable than me?

re: decisions, decisions

Truth be told, the only knowledge that any of us really have about the R, so far, is what we've read or heard from incomplete and/or non-authoritative sources.

However, with that caveat in mind, you might want to read our announcement thread, then check this thread and this one for some recent discussions of the new model. I hope they may help with your decision.
