JCP........you could have said that the black ones are riden by the most able riders, thus still being the fastest colour  :008:

Red,
thanks, that explains it!!!!

The natural good taste of those who choose Black striples is accompanied by uncanny god-like riding skill.
(don't compare this with my post in the "Crash History" thread......)
If it ain't broke....fiddle with it until it is!
If I were any more "Street" I'd be homeless.

Hey guys, you got me worried now. I read JCP's summary on the 16th and ordered a new jet black ST on the strength of it. Absolutely bog standard with no bling to slow it down. It should easily break 150  :005:, I reckon, when I have got through the break in period (and lost a bit a lot, of weight).

Excellent choice-You will find that 150 is an everyday achievable speed on a jet black striple (although toggling the display to Kph does make it easier.......)

people who get the black one are fat cos it helps them look thinner and there probably a bit submissive! :305:


if your thin and pationate rather needy and want to get noticed attention seekingthen go orange..
 

and you can tell people its faster....   of course!

AND less of the fat you skinny git-you're probably ginger too! :230:

I don't know why this argument keeps coming back: the question was settled ages ago by Triumph themselves. See the PArknGo series thread: they are fast, largely stock Striples and the vast majority are orange. That must therefore be the fastest colour, since the majority of people would use the fastest bikes in a race series. QED

As black and white are not colours........and therefore to mix both, grey would not be a colour either, so less of a choice if this makes things easier. :028:

So whats best, ride the faster colour slow, or the slowest colour fast  :027:

But seeing how a tiny pedrosa can get a honda off the second row into the lead, maybe it is down to pork pies...........

So whats the fastest...a pasty or a pork pie............ :008:  :087:

 :305:

ps, a pork pie can roll a lot faster than a pasty  :431:

to a non native english speaker, that entire post made about as much sense as a flying banana in winter  :027:
