Hello From Adelaide

Hi
New to forum from Adelaide Australia. I presently own a 09 sprint st and want to know if the street triple is a more upright bike as I find the sprint bad for my upper back after a few hundred kilometers (my issue, bike itself it great) if anyone has any opinions on what would be a good upright but still fun sporty bike that would be great!!

Hello fellow Adelaidian.

Saw your post. have you considered, adjustable high rise clip-on bars, you can see examples of these on the demon tweeks online store. They might save you buying a different bike.

Cheers

Welcome! Standard bikes by design are more upright and IMO more comfortable, not much wind protection though.
