    It's getting expensive as I get quicker.
    A brand new SuperCorsa lasted 2 1/2 days!
    Last time, they lasted 500 road miles and all 3 days...
    Still having fun though :D

    Done a couple of circuits around the course in the Isle of man, definitely need to get the suspension tuned when I get back home,,far too stiff, but I can't imagine how the professionals do what they do,, unbelievable.

    Commute for me today, sunny and only a bit cool this morning, very nice. I was looking forward to the forecast 0% precipitation, warm ride home. The reality was short, very sharp showers with wind and a cooler temperature than this morning. I am, however, very fortunate in that I can choose to commute on a road that lots of bikers come to to ride for fun at the weekends which is the route in that I took so no real complaints :laughing:.

    Looks ( to my limited knowledge) that your suspension and tyre pressure is spot on.

    Pushing it outside to finish a bit of stuff on the Sporty for the new owner .. and if it enjoys the sun, and keeps quiet, it just may be lucky enough to get a wee ride to it's favourite bar later on !

    We have a long weekend planned to Wales in August so have just finished adapting the fitting of my Ventura luggage rack, originally bought for my Ducati, to fit on my Street Triple.

    Also knocked up a platform on which to fit my Quadlock phone mount.

    I've just been out for a lovely solo sunny evening blast around the local area on some almost traffic - free twisty A roads. One of those evenings where things just feel perfect. @Helmut Visor and I are lucky enough to live in a really beautiful part of the country so there's plenty of enjoyment on our doorstep. I definitely feel like I struck very lucky with a Street Triple as my first big bike; as I get better at riding the more I can appreciate exactly what I have and what a good fit it is for me.

    I stopped just short of home again for an obligatory photo for the forum (didn't want to stop whilst blasting about even though the scenery is stunning) and then just a quick photo in the garden - two things @Helmut Visor cannot do this weekend due to work :p.

    Got out for a few hours. Great weather but sooo many bugs! They were as thick and fast as raindrops at some points. Bloody helmet kept letting them in, even with the vents closed.

    Sounds like a great day, @Mrs Visor! I've had those evenings you mentioned--where things just feel perfect. Looks like you also had a nice ending to a good ride, too. The garden scene is lovely. How are you liking the helmet?

    Bugs? What bugs?

    This lot was collected on an evening return trip on the A1 from Lincolnshire to Cambridgeshire. I dare not touch them because I knew what would happen if I did. It wasn’t until the following morning did I realise what an efficient bug catcher I was.
