Hello from Connecticut T3 Speed Triple owner

Hi,

New to the forum here, I figure I finally sign up. I have a 1995 Orange Speed Triple and a yellow 95 Daytona 900. Both bikes are stock (the way I like it).
The Speed Triple I have since 1998 and I'm the second owner, this bike looks new and has under 10k mls The Daytona has had 3 ownwers I believe and has around 30k mls.
For regular use I have a 2000 Cagiva Gran Canyon, for dirt use a 2005 Yamaha WR250F that is street legal.
I'm currently thinking of getting a Super III and or a 1999 Daytona 1200SE to further expand the collection.

Looking forward to posting and information exchanging.
Keep riding
Gary

Dreaming again

Welcome Gary! Nice bikes! How's the Cagiva? I've always been curious about that brand.

The Cagiva is nice, straight up riding that is not to different from a Triumph Tiger, you sit fairly close to the handlebar which together with the torque of the 900 Ducati engine and low gearing gives a bit of a dirtbike supermoto feel. Mine has a custom seat that makes it very comfy something that I can't say from my Triumphs.
Parts are a bit of a problem for the Cagiva, most can be found thru cross referencing but body parts are no longer available.

Thanks for the info on the Caviga. I'm always attracted to Italian motorcycles but never enough to buy one.

I agree with you on the Triumph seats. True at least on my Speedy. Switching to a Corbin made the bike oh so much more enjoyable! Wish I would've swapped it out years ago.
