    any Triumph street twin owners here?

    Hello fellow riders
    Wondering if you are the owner of the Triumph ST and how are you finding your owner experience or any other thing regarding the ST.
    Thanks in advance

    Wow, a nil response.

    Maybe, just maybe I am the owner of an exclusive and rare motorcycle that nobody else on Kiwibiker forum owns....or maybe they cannot be bothered replying or .....?

    I Don't want you to feel alone. I have one with the extra cylinder.

    Shall we exchange pictures with our wifes/boyfriends/ pets wearing pvc?

    Aw Shucks, get a room you too!
    Most likely they just can't be bothered.
    Takes a lot to light a fire under todays KBérs.

    When I first saw the post I wasn't optimistic about it receiving a response. It may not be that KBers are unduly recalcitrant, it may actually be there are no other Street Twin owners on KB.

    The value proposition isn't there. Triumph is a "premium" brand - trying to be the Pommy Hardly Ableson. So they play up their heritage and all that shit. They make some great bikes (I own one, still, and the bike it replaced was a modern Triumph). But that bike in particular? they are the thick end of $16k before you start ticking boxes. A Royal Enfield GT650 is $11k. You could get that, or two Himalayans, get functional equivalency, and have five grand in the kick for fripperies, bon bons lace and ribbons. Or decent exhausts so it sounds like a motorcycle, open up the inlet side and an ECU remap. That and some suspension work and you'd have a cool little bike and still have spent about what the entry price on the Triumph equivalent is.

    Fuck, while I am on it. Don't buy a Kawasaki W800 (twenty grand new) but get a ten or so year old W650 and tart that up. Better looking, go just as well and unique.

    I'm all about the nipple pastys these days. Not that sort of pasty (with the mince and the veg) though the crimped edge might get me going...

    Thanks for the replies, both bike related and fetish related.

    I paid 13k for my bike(2016 model), a Japanese import with three thousand km on the clock.
    Changed the tires, oil, airfilter, mirrors. Added a Dart piranha screen and a Givi luggage rack.'
    I am happy with it and have ridden some great roads with the local Ulysses group.

    Thought there might be some other users on here, didnt know it was a premium brand but wanted something with cred, looks and performance.

    Ride on riders
