    Done the dirty on my America and part-ex'd her for a 2015 Street Triple R in white. Picked the new bike up this morning and I'm tickled pink, I really am. Goes round corners superbly, brakes fantastic, featherlight after the America and next to my Bandit. I'm going to have to be really careful I don't get myself into trouble with this one. I had a test ride last Saturday and paid for her then and it seems the calipers have been overhauled since then and also the steering head bearings slackened off as they were too tight(but ok). Only bad thing which I didn't see on Saturday which I noticed today is when you take the seat off there are two little areas of rust at the rear bottom corners of the fuel tank. Not good. However, easily put right and easily overlooked being as I like the bike so much. It's a real joy to ride. Might even take it to the GMU instead of my trusty Bandit.

    I don't think the Street is a bike to be fettered with luggage Eric. So the Bandit it is.

    Top man. I had the feeling you were never really completely happy with the America when we got lost after some bloke called Steve buggered off instead of waiting at the junction and we ended up having our own little ride out with Eric?

    That’s because it has a secret ‘lady boy’ man power under the fairing!!

    Just took a few pictures. It's blowing a right gale here at the moment but it should subside in a couple of hours so I should be getting a few miles on the clock later today.

    Very nice Andy, I miss mine, it was such a fun bike! I see yours has the gold calipers too which I like. I think they changed them to black at some point.

    That’s nice Andy :cool::cool:
    Once you’ve had a few miles on her let me know how you find the riding position as a friend of mine who's about the same size as you bought a new one early last year and has had to put bar risers on as it was uncomfortable for him after 20 miles.
