Hey from Northern VA

Hey guys, just picked up a 2001 Speed Triple last week. I've rode a suzuki sv for a while, but decided it was time for an upgrade. The bike runs great. It's black with a black widow under-seat exhaust. 13,000 miles but runs like a dream. First thing I did was take the factory bunny ear mirrors off and swap on my bar ends from the SV. Anyways, nice to be here. Any other Northern VA/DC area riders here?

Ooh; those are good looking exhausts. I bet it sounds great too.

There's a RAT section to the forum where you should be able to find other local riders. Or ask in Rides and Events.

Welcome!




I won't stop riding because you tell me about someone who died in an accident, just as I won't stop eating because someone died of e.coli.

Yep, the exhaust does look and sound really nice. Got to love that 3-cyl note. And yea, once you get outside of the Beltway and out west a little bit, VA is a beautiful place to ride. Thanks for the welcomes!
