    Hi,
    Hello , guess I’ll just jump straight in here as to why I’m here. I rode a 2010 Street from new till September this year when it was stolen from my garage. I’m currently trying to decide between a Street RS which I’ve test ridden and a new (to me) Speed RS. Loved my Street but always hankered after a Speed but at 5’8 was concerned about the weight of the Speed so looking for anyone’s experience of switching to a new Speed RS from a Street of any age. I’ll be doing the occasional commute rather than regular . I opted for the Street originally as at the time it was my main mode of transportation. Now looking at my next ride as a pure toy with the odd commute
    Cheers for any feedback
    Gary

    First of all you had your bike stolen and you’ve got your post code on here telling us where your next bike will be. Take it off. The majority of us lot are fine but there’s always a wrong-un somewhere. In the meantime welcome in to the madhouse

    Cheers all, unfortunately Location is a required field when signing up. So in such scenarios it’s always best to use an old one . Looking forward to the interaction . Cheers for now

    What a bummer about your bike and welcome to the Family. My friend had his stolen aswel and they seem to be stolen to order by a particular gang that don't care if they have to use a 10 inch angle grinder on any one who tries to stop them and they don't even try to disguise their faces. They know the Police are to buzzy collecting revenue with their static camera's that they won't come to investigate even if you supply them with camera evidence.
    Ride Safe
    Joe.
