Well … after a year in Afghanistan and 6 months back here not having a bike - finally am getting a wonderful Street Triple courtesy of one of our LB members:)
So, from this evening, will be a fully fledged biker again, although after 18 months off two wheels, I now ride like a beginner and am a total liability, so will be practising for a few weeks on sedate rides - and no BCR until am used to the open road again!!
Can’t wait!! Awesome bike!!
So the rusty old has been is now back on two wheels (and hopefully not A&E) - Maybe will see you folks at BM sooner rather than later:P
Sorry Raquib to swipe the bike from under your nose;) (all’s fair in love and war, hey buddy :P) But you are most welcome to have a go on it if you attend the BM sometime, or the Ace:). You are right, it is a great bike, am very lucky:D:D It would have been hard to rival the good old Hornet, but this might be even better:D
yeah but you were faster than me in those days… remember these days i can run faster than that bike of yours… no escaping me! + you’d have to stay on the bike to have a chance of getting away… thats unlikley
Everyone is saying it’s better than the Hornet - but - just for old times sake I will post a pic of my old Hornet up here - it has gone to a new home now, but was race tuned and had an off the peg exhaust - so a special Hornet, with very special orange wheel rims too
However, I am hearing that the Striple has been a top buy - and I look forward to riding mine and letting people sit on it at BM. Anyone know if you can fit heated grips to one? I had those on my old Hornet, and they were a lifesaver in the winter and meant it was possible to go to Box Hill even in December with toasty warm hands
