What have you done on your Street Triple today?
« on: September 12, 2014, 04:27:54 PM »
Fitted my official Triumph frame protectors and engine covers that should only be fitted by a trained mechanic according to the box!! Yeah, right!

Then as I have the day off decided to take a 200 mile round trip to a nice little cafe I know on the east coast  :305: I have a lot of dead flies to wash off now.

Nothing today, but I took the long way round to Leicester and back and covered around 400 miles, so I know what you mean about the flies!!  :001:

Got absolutely splattered with a shower of flies going from Alston in Cumbria on the B6277 to Middleston on Teesdale. Never known anything like it. Did 340 miles in total in Yorkshire Dales / Cumbria on Tuesday. See Ride reports.

I'll take some and post 'em up. I prefer the look of the genuine ones rather than bungs, they blend in nicely.

Standard seat for me, and no problem with comfort!

I gave my bike a good wash. Its not been cleaned since mid july so was looking somewhat grubby. Tomorrow I'll be cleaning brakes, chain and tightening the chain.

Picked up my Street triple R (62 plate) from Bevans of Cardiff on Wednesday and today like Wednesday and Thursday I played with the gear change just to hear that beautiful sound in my ears. I ended up with a sore ankle, poor mpg and a huge smile on my face. Happy days.

Got any pics deep heat? What colour did you go for? I always get poor mpg on mine, I just love 1st gear pull from traffic lights.
