Hi from North Wales

Hi all,

Just purchased my 2011 Street Triple this week, had a speed triple 955 in the past and loved it, gotta love the triumph styling

Nice colour!  Looks very much like Lotus' Aubergine. 

Cheers, 2

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

Love that colour- Beelady does, too! - and it looks to be in fine condition.  Nice one.

I hope there is some relief from the lockdown restrictions coming your way soon - preferably before the best of the summer weather is gone.   As long as any relief doesn't lead to the biking equivalent of Bournemouth beach on the North Wales roads!

You might miss some of the 'grunt' of the 955 Speed but I'm fairly sure the lightness and agility of the Street will soon make you forget any perceived "deficiency".

Interesting looking mirror extenders that (I think) I can see on your bike - where they on there when you purchased it or something you've added?

Anyway, when you DO get the chance to enjoy more than 5 miles of riding, enjoy and stay safe!

Regards,

Adie

Hi Adie,

The mirrors came on the bike, not a fan of them though, so will be changing to some bar end style ones shortly
