Old Seafarer, New Bike

Triumph Speed Triple 1

On Tuesday, I took delivery of a new Triumph Street Triple - in red! After 22 years riding BMW's I have foresworn Teutonic efficiency for English hooliganism, and it's great! The Street Triple is a naked sports bike based on the Triumph Daytona 675. The engine is Triumph's trademark triple and there is nothing on the bike which isn't essential to make it go or stop. No ABS, no heated hand grips, no anything except engine, wheels and brakes. Touring is out of the question, and pillions are tolerated begrudingly.

Triumph Speed Triple 3

Think of it as two wheel's answer to the sports car, and you have it.

Triumph Speed Triple 4

Life is good.

  1. One of my favorite rides was a Triumph Bonneville 650.

  2. Obviously Channeling your "Inner Hooligan" Stu ? Now all you need is a decent bit of uniterupted road
