Just ordered my Street Triple R. I have wanted one for about 2 years however couldnít afford one until recently. I have previously had a Lexmoto Tekken (learner bike), Ninja 300, MT07, M09, and more recently Ducati scrambler 800 Full Throttle. Iím in Hertfordshire UK.
Because of COVID-19 the dealer canít get the new bike into the workshop for around 3 weeks and so I have a little bit of a wait.

Hertfordshire not Herefordshire!

Was in St Albans and Hemel Hempstead on Sunday with my 12 year daughter pillion on the back of my 675R. Quite a few roads around St Albans were closed.

Hey chinkeymonkey026!  Hello, good morning and a very warm  :401: to the net's best for all things Street Triple!

Oh my!  a 3 week wait will seem  like forever!  Still, with luck this crap weather will have cleared and you'll be able to get out and enjoy the bike when it arrives.  Hope so.  We'll need some pictures to prove it, of course.

Meantime, kick back and enjoy a vicarious ride with your fellow forum members.

Stay safe.

Regards,

Adie

Yes a bit of a pain! All to do with social distancing apparently.  :027:

As soon as I have it Iíll be posting plenty of pics! Deciding if I should ride my old bike there and ride new bike back or just hire a van?  :008:

Yes 3 weeks seems ages! I hope the weather is nice when I have it. Thanks for the welcome.
