Just want to say hi to everyone here. I've been coming to this site for about a year now. Originally I was looking for info on the S3, and ironically this site discouraged me from getting one. I saw some threads about oil leaks and electrical problems, and of course the brake "issue" and they scared me out of spending my money on one. I wound up buying a slightly used '05 zx10r instead :smug: . Unfortunately, the S3 keeps grabbing my attention, and coming here nearly everyday doesn't help either. I've decided to wait until the weather gets better and then take a triple for a test ride (I should have done just that a year ago :roll: ), I'll make my final decision then. Anyway, like I said I wanted to say hi, I've been checking this place out nearly daily for a long time and I think this is one of the best forums out there.

Good catch! That's what I do in my secret life away from the internet. We don't use steam very much anymore though. :lollol:

I actually was thinking if I get the green one, certain people might not even notice that I got a new bike..AGAIN. :-D

I actually go back and forth on this, that's why I need a test ride. It's actually really cool that Triumph even offers test rides. Too bad other makers can't learn from their example.

That's actually really funny.

(a lot of the hobos live that way by choice, I don't care really if they're on the train, as long as they don't come on the engine, and if I don't see them that's even better.)

I see you're coming off an '05 R1, similar to what I'd be changing from, do you miss the R1 much?

not at all...the only time i really miss it is at the top end...most of my friends still have liter jap bikes and when they decide its time to do 175 i can't hang...but all of the fun that speedy is makes up for that...and i like being the different one :hammer: just go test her and see...speedy will still feel like the monster that the zx10 is at lower range...and how oftern do ya do 175 anyways :wink:
