Hello everyone I'm new to this forum although I'm not new to triumph. I've owned a 2003 triumph sprint st for three years now, and I just bought a 2005 triumph sprint st 1050i. I live in Pittsburgh PA and have owned many bikes through the years( 2009 zx6r 2003 gsxr 600 1997 zx6r) to name a few. But as I got older I wanted something that was more comfortable to ride for my wife and I. After doing some research on sport touring bikes I came across the sprint and it was love at first sight. It was more of a sport bike than most touring bikes but much more comfortable. With the removable hard cases I could go on a ride to the store and pick somethings up or I could take them off and still ride with all of my friends that still had sport bikes.look forward to talking to all of you.
