I used to be such a nice little chap, very conservative motorcycle clothing, BMW system 4 helmet, cordura jacket etc. I`m still fairly normal until I get onto the S3. Then, I`m afraid, it`s all skull facemasks, Davida open face and wheelies up the high street.
THE SPEED TRIPLE MADE ME DO IT!
I have become Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hooligan.

Has the S3 changed the way you dress or ride or even the way you treat small children and furry animals?

Do you become a different person every time you get on the thing?


Incidentally, that pic was taken early this morning, a bottle of Bundy to any Aussies who can tell me the location. The telegraph pole is a dead giveaway...

I actually bought my speedy to 'tame down' a little. Fer some reason I thought the up-right riding position would chill me out a little. What happened?!?!? :hammer: :-D

Recently the senior staff verbalized that my behavior has changed at work since I bought the triple. In this discussion they had to lay down some ground rules because I have to present a certain image. I found out what they didn't like.

Walking into a meeting holding a helmet, tank bag as a briefcase, and bragging about how quickly I got there is no longer appropriate.

Wearing a black t-shirt with skulls and inappropriate saying under my white dress shirts, during the fore mentioned meeting is not always appropriate.

Going to the strip club for lunch is not acceptable.

Trying to pop a wheelie every time I drive past the front window of the office, whilst trying to impress our typically hot receptionists is no longer appropriate. And consequently making out with the receptionists during company functions is no longer appropriate.

Bragging about riding naked is no longer something I can do in the office. Those who have been to my house for parties know that sometimes this describes me and not always the bike.

Requesting reimbursement for speeding tickets, but having justified the expense as being cheaper than my hourly rate, is not acceptable.

I tried to explain how this bike improved my confidance and time management skills, but they don't buy it. I still want a dress suit with a back protector. :razz:

Some are never happy! Let's keep the nakid look and retainj the double headlights. Without them the Triple is just another nakid and NOT the Icon we have come to love. Those who want a single headlight conversion -- Buy a Bandit 1200/1250!

Well done, Moobal in NSW, outside the Moo Moo cafe. Every telegraph pole and lampost in the town is painted with
black and white patches like a cow.

I`m a bit worried about sending you a Canadian Club, you`re not going to start bashing baby seals are you?

:-D :-D :-D :-D

A 'virtual' bottle of CC is on it`s way

Sh!t, strip clubs for lunch and receptionists for dinner seems like it would be worth a lttile b!tching from the boss. They're just jealous 'cause their haggard old ladies stopped thrilling them a long time ago.
You should bone that receptionist in your bosses office when he's at lunch. You wouldn't be breaking any of his rules, You'd just be keeping him busy writing new ones.

I did warn you mate! Actually, as soon as you got on the S3 demo bike and I pointed a camera at you, you gave me the finger :razz:
