:D Glad to find this forum for us Trumpet players. I'm in East Anglia and have had a 750 Speed Triple for ....... 9 years I reckon. Have been riding since 1978, starting with 2-strokes (as you did in those days, ah! I can still smell the heady vapours now), then a few jap 4-stroke twins, fours and then I discovered these weird 3 cylinder things! Dead stable, weigh a ton, look and sound like nothing else on the road, go for ever, shed-loads of street cred with anybody who you would describe as a "proper biker" (that could be controversial these days), and made in England (surprising how many non-bikers don't believe you when you tell them this).

So, I hope I have some useful stuff to contribute from my years of S3 ownership, certainly in terms of common faults, and how long you can get away with leaving them for! I did have a Harley Davidson as well for a few years, but that's another story (don't go there!) :mad:
