    So first of all a big hello to all of you! Im new to this forum so thought i would show off my new toy.

    Last july i bought a beautiful 05 gold triple, zard full system and all the toys. Absolutely loved it. Unfortunately 82 year old Margaret didnt see me one day and i ended up getting a little intimate with the front end of her mazda! Unfortunately the triple didnt survive and i was left with some pretty bad injuries.

    Althought a year down the line and alot of painful recovery and making do. I can now proudly say im back with a 60 plate black one! Absolutely love it and looking forward to doing many many miles!

    Cheers guys!

    Lowering the headlights is a popular mod using the mount from the Street Triple :)
