    Hello;

    I must confess, I have been lurking for on here a while now! Anyway, long overdue that I say hello and contribute a little to what is clearly a great forum.

    I am a Brit living in Singapore, and had my Speed Triple RS a couple of months. Is simply the best bike I have ever owned - am loving it.

    I will post elsewhere for mods/problems, but in the meantime, hello all!

    David.

    Thank you!

    I'm glad I love it because it cost a fortune. Everyone has heard of the taxes in Singapore for cars and motorcycles, but writing the cheque still brings a tear to the eye.

    How does £24k / EUR26k / USD29k / CAD38k sound for a new RS?!

    I don't know whether to ride it just hang it on the wall and look at it!!

    Beautiful bike. Nearly bought one before my Diavel but found the seat a bit harsh on my wee bottom. Welcome mate

    Hi David,

    Greetings from a cold & rainy Scotland, I have spent a few years working in Singapore and the only bike I had there was pedal powered.

    Cheers.

    Welcome aboard David from yet another Dave, and agree with Dave above re mum and teachers, lovely looking RS you have there, at that price it was a good job you didn't fancy a Kawasaki H2 o_O

    Welcome to the family. Great bike there and great shot. Yes I think like you I would want to polish it every day at that price. But its only money and if you get the same amount of enjoyment and smiles then its money well spent.
    Ride Safe & Enjoy.
    Joe.

    Welcome Dave. Lovely bike has been said and it's only money, you can't take it with you. But I know some tight arses who try!

    Wow, I love the bike but don’t think I would be prepared to spend that much.
