Welcome Goose (as in Maverick’s navigator?)

You’ve found a great place for well judged advice and information.

Yes photos please.

Hey Craig.  Hello, good morning and a very warm  :401: to the net's best for all things Street Triple!

Nice to hear that a 'very new biker' has already chosen the right(eous) path of Street Triple ownership - you are going to LOVE it!   The Street Triple is, without a doubt, a great allrounder that can turn a wheel to pretty much any motorcycling task ..... perhaps short of being turned into a trials bike?  :001:

There is a wealth of experience on this forum and advice and guidance are invariably provided with good grace so ask away.

In the meantime I hope you get the bike stashed safe and dry before Dennis arrives to dampen the party spirits!

Be safe.

Regards,

Adie

Brill, thank you for the warm welcomes.

I've a week or so while the bike gets a service and tidy up, in the mean time, insurance to sort a few other accessories to gather too.

Ground anchor for the garage and chain to start with (not due to storm Dennis, but you never know! :027: )

Plethora of knowledge here that has been shared and communicated with is great to dig through!

Welcome from me too, also on a Mk1 R.

Mine is a 59 plate graphite, yours must be one of the very first Rs. Pics!

Tom, yeah I *think* the first Rs did 'hit the street' before Christmas 08.

Hey Adie I am pretty sure that somebody did actually fit long travel sus and knobblies to a Street a few years back. Not sure how that went though, tbh...!
