    Just back from tour. Holland, Germany, Italy, Austria and Slovenia. Only concern was the 500 mlile trip on motorway on first day. Mainly because the other bikes were a tuned zzr 14 and a k1300. But they sat at a steady 100 which was fine on the speedie. Done so many passes. 30 degree heat. And the scenery wow. Now this was touring and the speed triple was an absolute blast. As comfy as the other bikes. Better on the passes. As gd a tank range if not better. Can’t wait till the nxt one. Got 23k on the bike now and I’m keeping it. Love it.

    Nice insight to the trip you had, was that a first or have you done more? Most of us long for a trip light that.
