Speed Triple vs. Street Twin
Hey guys, I know this is going to be seem like a really weird question, but I currently have a 2016 Street Twin and am thinking about trading for a very nice used 2016 Speed Triple with 7000 fewer miles. Obviously, these bikes are on different planets performance wise, but I am worried that the Speed is just too much for the street riding I do. The Street Twin is very friendly and easy to ride, but the suspension sucks and in many ways it's archaic on purpose. As I said, I ride only on the street on as many twisty road I can find, tend to do 100-150 miles at a time and occasionally ride with my wife. I'm just curious to hear some perspectives on this.
