Hello from Seattle


I'm Dennis Bratland and this week I took home a new Street Triple R in matte graphite. I've only gone about a dozen miles but I'm having a great time so far. I hope I can get in a decent long ride this weekend.

I've been riding about 10 years, first on a Ninja 250 and Yamaha Vino 125. Then I had a 2006 Ducati Sport1000 for a while, then a 2007 Honda CBR600RR, which I still have. I plan on keeping the Honda, at least as a track bike, and use the Street Triple as my main bike.

Besides riding, I do quite a bit of editing on Wikipedia, mostly on motorcycling topics. The articles on the Suzuki Hayabusa, Honda Super Cub, Harley-Davidson XR750, and Roper Steam Velocipede are mostly my work. I've touched most of the major motorcycling topics, and hopefully haven't done much harm...

I just uploaded to Wikipedia Commons some pictures of my bike out by a rail car at Salmon Bay Sand & Gravel:
