    A short little video from todays "spirited" ride thorugh the mountains here in Cape Town. I was following my friend on his GSR750. That bike is no slouch! Same HP as the 675 but with 80nm vs the 68nm of the Triple.

    What a blast. That kind of rush lasts for days...
    Reminds me of my crazy days in WV. Not much run-off room there friend. One missed turn and it's the wreck of Flight 675. I can appreciate that.
    Thanks for the post!!

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Unfortunately I sold my Street Triple and went back to my 1 true love. Aprilia Tuono V4!

    Once upon a time we had road surfaces that good but not in the last 30 years.

    Great video. Surprised you can sit on the thing with the size of them nuts mind...

    Had a triple for the day when the twin was in for service. Instantly knew I’d leave a wife and child behind when I had the front wheel off the floor at 70mph in second gear. The relative sedateness of the twin was welcome!

    Haha thanks for the kind words :blush:

    I know this mountain pass extremely well so I tend to go a little faster than I should. Lots of weekend warriors much faster than me flying around this road on the weekends!

    Naturally lots of bikes become second hand here.... :yum

    Nice! I looked at a GSR750 before settling on the 765 RS. For a basic bike they don't half go well! :cool:

    Nice, but where was all the traffic and potholes??? There should have been at least 5 coach loads of tourists!

    Haha thanks! yeah I've done a few races on my old Tuono and a 8 hour endurance race on a CBR150.
