I researched, compared and about shopped myself to death for this bike. I finally bought an 08 a couple of Saturdays ago and hooked-up with a ride through the twisties the very next day. Even at it's pre-set suspension settings the bike handled great making me look like a veteran on those roads. Since then I shaved the seat down and adjusted the suspension now it handles a hundred times better. This thing is a BLAST to ride and I can't wait until everything is broken-in and loosened-up.

I'll post pics later.

I wish I lived down south. :(

...enough that I wish I get fired. I'll just pack up and leave. year round riding is doable up here, but the black ice and salt will destroy your bike.

The deal was super sweet I caught it as a guy was looking to trade it in on a new Ducati "Street Fighter".

BLACK is the color.

Congrats on the new ride...

I think I know which guy sold you your bike - he posted up about selling it for the new Duc streetfighter in the "other" Speed Triple forum.

Enjoy your new S3!

Ya,I would like to know about the "other" forum as well! This board can move rather slowly at times and I wouldn't mind a second outlet for Triumph discussion.

Apparenty it's a no-no to post the name of the other board here, but if you know the name of your bike... you can figure it out. :)
