Staff bikes: Triumph Street Triple - Breaking it in

The first 1000 miles of riding the Street Triple was a real bonding experience between myself and the bike. Feeling the engine develop from a tightly-wound, tense machine into something more fluid and smooth gave me a real sense of understanding its potential.

Nice bike

I was going to get one of these, but instead went for a Ducati Monster 1100s. Both I think are fantastic bikes, but I thought the Ducati was a bit more exclusive, but have heard the ST is a bit more user friendly.

You seem to have misunderstood the running in procedure. Only after 20-30 miles of high revving high engine breaking should you back off. Only then will your piston rings seat correctly. This is debatable no doubt but I've always nailed my new engines in the first 20 miles and my compression and power outputs are better than other bikes of the same type and year that have been ran in according to the makers book. You'll be fine though.

2nd Bike

Hi - This is a way old thread but thought I'd give it a shot - you mentioned that this was your first bike after getting your full icence.

I just got my full (about 9000kms travelled - communiting and leisure riding on restricted) - would you recommend this as a first "bigger" bike after a 250 Ninja?
