    Hi New speed owner

    Hi, purchased a 2012 speed a few month ago, after trading in my street. I have always ridden litre bikes but switched to the smaller lighter bike for commuting. Mistake. Missed the big bike feel and traded after 8 months. The speed is a great bike. I have always ridden Aprilias and Ducati bikes, but after years of failing electrics and parts failing off I moved over to Triumph. I have been looking around the forum for a while and its great to see a place for open minded bikers who can say what they feel and not get banned for it.

    if you're worried about shit falling off your bike, start tightening nuts and bolts now.

    Red is a great color on the S3, welcome.
    You can either agree with me or be wrong.
