Hi all.
I recently bought my first Triumph after 20 years of riding mostly Japanese sportsbikes; a nice crystal white 2018 Speed Triple RS and I’m loving it. Great power delivery, brilliant handling and a lovely noise from the Arrow cans.

Congratulations, lovely bike, prefer it over the new one I think, if you have a single sided swingarm then show it off, don't stick a big ugly exhaust in the way.

Hello SpeedyRS! Thank you for introducing yourself. We’re really glad you joined! That is a fine looking motorcycle; great of you to post a picture right away.

I hope you find this site to be a great place to meet and talk with a great bunch of riders about Triumph bikes. Everyone here is very willing to help with questions or problems with your bike(s). I have personally saved lots of time and money thanks to the skilled help I have received from members.

Please post your questions in the sections related to your bike’s model. Most of the time you will get quick, informed responses.

As you cruise around the many different sections of this site you will find a wealth of information. There are technical sections for every Triumph model and chat sections for the same. Also, we have a classifieds section that is well worth checking out. (NOTE: You need to make at least five posts before you can post to Classifieds.)

Here is a link to the rules of the site and the classifieds. I recommend that you take a few minutes to read through them.

Read first before trying to post. Classified Ad Rules - Accessing Our Classifieds

If you want to just hang out and shoot the breeze the “Biker Hang-Out” Chat Section will be the place to stop in. Biker Hang-Out

If you haven't already please fill out your profile. It helps others to know what you ride and where on the planet you are located.

Here are the governing rules of the site and what can and cannot be done here. Acceptable Use Policy - Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

Thank you. I agree about the look of the old over the new. I’d gone to the dealer to look at the new bike, but I just preferred the overall look of the old one. The 1200 is great and if I was a track fiend I’m sure it would be a better choice but I’m a sucker for under seat pipes and preferred the more road biased feel of the 1050 over the 1200.
