New 2017 STRS UK Owner
« on: August 12, 2017, 11:03:53 AM »


Hello everyone i have a 2017 STRS, picked it up on the 7th August already smashing the miles to get past the run in mode. However this is Version 2 as Version 1 bit the bullet when a van shunted it and ended its early start in life.

I had a 2015 Honda CB650F and was a moderator on that side of life so fairly established in terms of getting round hopefully try and be useful around here also. Prior to that had a Suzuki GSF650 Bandit for a few years.

I enjoy mid engine sized bikes but always admired Triumphs ever since my Dad owned his some 20 years ago. So I finally saved up for the dream bike, Im not a fan of litre bikes as personally I find them boring to ride but do enjoy watching them race.

I'm based around Salisbury UK area but usually work down Plymouth or Portsmouth way.

Anyway thats a brief history Im sure it will all be told along the years Ill be here.

Decent list of Accessories. However Triumph seem to have a long lead time on some parts also got my eye on some nice trick Carbon parts too.

I hope v2 lasts a lot longer than V1 must have.

Welcome on board - nice list of mods.

If you are considering carbon you should have a look at www.carbonfbr.com. Bel (owner) is an active user on here as well.

Always good meet similar people. I got mine from Destination Triumph (Solent) Im guessing that where you might of picked yours from too? Ive actaully just moved from Southampton so I do know it very well and all the good routes around the area. The top of portsdown hill and Loomies are always my local coffee and food places. Generally Im free at the moment as waiting to start a course so any excuse to get out away from decorating it a plus. Also I do Ride all weathers and have done European across the eurotunnel and Hired and done other places.

Welcome welcome  :031:
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
The question is, what is the question?
