Thank you all for your thoughtful replies.
I went to my buddy who owns the local triumph dealer and he made a fair offer on my Street Twin and is selling me a brand new 2018 Street Triple R LRH for well under cost. His buddy has it at his shop in state and he's transferring to my local dealer and triumph is kicking is 5 figures to get the bike sold.
Basically, the out the door total cost is about what I would have paid had I got a STR LRH first. However, I have learned a lot on the thousands of miles I put on my Street Twin and don't regret it. I am basically losing the cost of the CAM upgrade I did on the Street Twin.
For what's it worth, I can barely ball the LRH right now and am going to a local seat wizard to take another 3/10 of an inch off or so to make me totally comfortable on the STR LRH. The non LRH was not an option.
I feel safe on it now, but want to be more comfortable with it in traffic and at stops, etc.
I think the STR is all the bike I'll want for a while anyway. I love power to weight and light vehicles. Not sure I'd want more power in a bigger bike, but let's see what Triumph comes up with in the next 3-4 years. I plan to take it slow and just enjoy the ride, so to speak.
As cool as the acceleration will be, I am super excited about the responsiveness and braking.
The bike will be in next week, but I am adding engine guards, side guards, and rear pegs to lift the bike so I can grease the chain myself (I do 500 miles in a week or two - so doing it myself is pivotal). I can ride the Street Twin in the meantime, but should be on the STR by the end of the month easy.
I'll keep everyone in the loop.
Thank you all again and I will report on how I like her. BTW, I am naming her Jenny (after Jenny Tinmouth a British Racer and Isle of Man TT participant http://www.jennytinmouth.com
