It's been years in the process.....but here we go....

I really wanted to get a Scrambler/Bonnie but after riding one these S3's again..... hooked. Comfort. Power. SOUND. Oh the sound!













:D

I liked it before I rode it home....almost pooped myself on the way home. CANNOT wait to get this thing into the canyons.

:cool:

crap.... now im trying to remember all the things that are on the bike.
triumph carbon pipes, carbon chain guard, carbon other thing, risers, bar end mirrors, solo cowl...oh how could I forget?? He replaced the front brakes with a nice Brembo situation.


and the best thing? A folder three inches thick filled with invoices and receipts from work that has been done to it over the years.

Great looking bike man. Pure sex on two wheels.

Why would he buy the last generation? I ask why wouldn't he? I mean I love what they did with the new bike except for the looks. Look at those pictures and tell me the new bike is anywhere close to that sexy. I mean C'mon man.

*Yeah I'm watching Monday night countdown*

I didnt buy the newest one because this bike fit the bill perfectly for what i wanted - something that had some miles and some character with some extra bits. I didnt want to fool around with exhaust, or mapping or seats - I wanted it complete. and it is!

Maybe it's just the tint of the sun but that chain looks DRY! Check it out and lube that thang if it need it. BTW...beautiful bike...NOTHING is sexier than the la generation S3. I could have bought a 2012 or 2010 brand new and was a no brainer to get the 2010.

I just like the new headlights better. I think you should swap the bug eyes for the mean ones on the new s3. I think the new lights match the tank you have better.

They are the Triumph Arrow Carbon pipes with Leo Vince end caps
