2000 miles on my Street!
« on: January 20, 2018, 03:46:32 PM »
Well this week I finally ticked over 2000 miles on my Street Triple!

After a frustrating start that is!

Only commuting but that is gonna change in the spring time!

It's a great bike overall, being a multi there isn't instant torque like I'm used to though from my thumpers.

And it feels cramped with textile trousers on.

Can't move around on it much, I feel like I'm in a fixed position.

I'm 6ft with long legs though.

But other than that, lovely machine!

heya,

Ive been riding 2 stroke enduros/mx on and off since I was 14 (Im now 37!) and only recently got my street (first proper big road bike) and I love it but have the same sort of feelings you do!  It feels so heavy compared to my yz250 I use for green laning and woos.  I can just throw that around and change lines in a nano second, even on the road I feel more.... stable(??) on the yz and probably safer!  I thinks its due to having the 7same riding position for so many years and a street bike is a totally different kettle of fish!

I love the street to bits and cant wait to gain some more confidence and start pushing myself, but for this weather you cant beat the stupid amount of fun of the off roader (plus I love the stupidness of my 2 stroke motor and how easy it is to maintain)

I had a YZ250 engined Lambretta. It was the maddest bike  Ive owned.
