Speed Triple

Hey guys and gals. I've now been riding bikes for about 3 years and by the time I change my present one (TT600) it'll have been nearer 4. My question is I really fancy a new shape Speed Triple. I've fallen in love with it. Do you think I'm experienced enough to consider buying one or am I kidding myself? Cheers people  :lol:

Speed triple

If you can afford it then do it. The speed triple has excellent reviews and three years experience should now keep you out of trouble providing you don't get too carried away !:smile

Hmmmmm

Get a test ride and try lots of others too!!

I, like u, fell for the Speed Triple big time!! Really really wanted one! All the reviews and the look were just great!! Then I rode one! An 09 1050 model. Had it for about 4 or 5 hours and it was bland and boring as heck! Really did nothing for me!
To say I was a little dissapointed would be the hugest understatement of the century!!

Then I rode the Tuono!! 10 minutes and I was sold! What a beast! Just what I was after!! 2 years later and i'm still very happy and sure I made the right choice!

So, to summise, they are both great bikes. Maybe the Triumph would be a better option for u due to only having 3 years experience. Slightly softer and less hardcore than the Aprilia but still good. All the raving reviews can't be that wrong can they? Maybe I got a bad one who knows?

All I'm saying is try as many bikes as possibe before buying one for its looks. Remember, its the ride that counts, u can't see it wen ur sat on it!!!!!!


:tongue:
