    Hi everyone
    Been looking for a good UK based Triumph forum and this could be it. Bit spooky as I am a member of the Ducati Forum Uk and this looks very similar.

    Just swopped my lovely Ducati Multistrada 1200 S touring which was about 18 months old for a new Speed Triple 1050ABS. The Ducati had let me down too many times and had been back to the dealer 8 times to be fixed in the time I had her. (Brakes, clutch, auto steering lock, remote unlocking, surging, high speed cut outs and latest was a coolant recall)

    I had enjoyed taking out the wife's Street Triple out and loved the way it howled at about 12000 rpm, trouble was it was just too small and cramped for someone 6` 3" tall, so had a demo on the Speed Trip and was hooked; just hope it proves reliable.

    I still intend to tour this bike so looking around at easily removable panniers (quite like the Bags Connection Blaze type) Quite often ride out up Derbyshire or out towards Market Harborough and be nice to hear from any locals.


    Here she is

    Picked up from Pidcocks Nottingham

    Shame I could not afford to keep it. This was in the French Alps this year.
