Newbie - Losing my virginity.

Hi all

Bought my first Triumph - Street Triple R, gee I hope its reliable or the boss will kill me.

Decided to join my first forum instead of observing from the outside. Forums are outstanding research tools!

My first post on a forum.

Who said you are too old to learn new tricks...

Cheers

Welcome Webos! Congratulations on the Street Triple R! It should be extremely reliable. Not to worry.

The R is a cool machine. What colour?

Yes modern Triumphs are extremely reliable. I've had 3 in 7 yrs with a total of 120,000km on them. The early 1050 had a couple of recalls (nothing engine related). The reset of the time the bikes just need normal servicing.

The R is Graphite. Only decent picture I have so far below. List of additions will include tail tidy, rear hugger and belly pan.
