First post, buying a Street Triple R

Hey there, riders.

After hearing the rave reviews from from a few different sources, I opted to check on the Street Triple R for myself and I must say I'm impressed. I had a deer encounter on my Ninja 650 (RIP Katsumi) so it's about time to move on to a new set of badass wheels.

Stay safe out there!

Welcome! It's no Speed Triple, but I guess it will do.

I keed, I keed.

Ha! Initially I was going go with the Speed Triple, but after trying the Street big brother definitely felt a bit fat in the a$$. Keeping it slim and svelte for these LA streets and many, many (MANY) cagers.

Thanks for the welcome. May pick it up this weekend and super excited. Needs a flyscreen, some sliders, a cover set, and a left bar end mirror and I'll be goooooooood to go. (Until a new shock, LEDs, heated grips later in the year, oooh, the possibilities!)

Ah, can't wait. See you out there soon.

Don't judge, fat bikes need love too.

I finally got mine home today, time to start the mods.

You better put those heated grips on the top of your list with those brutal L.A. winters.

Welcome.

I'm still trying to decide between Street and Speed. Let us know what you think when you get yours.
