Hey Col68!  Hello, good morning and a very warm  :401: to the net's best for all things Street Triple!

So, can we take it from your use of the expression " ... or anything modern come to that ..." that you're, perhaps, an owner/rider/user of the older varieties of two wheeled transport?  Presumably not the Meriden products as you also said that you're 'new to Triumphs'.  Or maybe I'm just reading too much into things? 

Well, regardless, welcome on board, drag up a seat and consider telling us where you are; what you do and what got you into the more modern two wheeler - we already know why you chose the Street Triple ...... obvious, really!    Oh, and we do like to see pictures!

I suspect that the vast majority of us is as eagerly awaiting spring/summer as are you!   I know I am.  We could REALLY do with a post covid bonanza of dry, warm and sunny weather and decent roads to ride.   Soon!

In the meantime, stay safe, stay well.

Regards,

Adie

Well,Col. the ST is a fine replacement for the old twosmoke stuff - not too dissimilar in power delivery characteristics but many times more environmentally, user and wallet friendly!

Thanks for the pic. - nice bike!

Regards,

Adie

Hey Col68,

What 'smokers' have you got?  I do love the smell of a 2stroke ( yeah I know, thats me on the odd shelf!!)

I loved my 2 strokes in the 80's...... wish I still had my RGV250, god I loved that thing  ..... sounded brilliant with a set of microns on it :028:

Hey Col68, nice to see another TDR250 owner that is finding the STR to be (almost) as much fun.  :028:
My TDR250 gets regular warm weather use. But I must admit that I keep half an eye on the miles it is racking up these days (now over 30k).
