    I think them ones actually go a fair bit quicker in Wales, something about being a bit sheepish. At least you didn't mention anything about the wheels.

    Hope you get to spend lots of time getting to know your new bike Welderup, and do that track day !!

    Dam I thought I got the quick one with the go faster stripe. 😄 Took it for my first spin yesterday and loved it, it's Def got the grin factor I was looking for. Def gonna get the suspension setup for my gentlemanly physique. What's your thoughts on a steering damper on these, feels like it could use one. 👍

    I've had the Matris Damper for many years. About two years ago I took it off because it needed to be rebuilt and I still haven't had it rebuilt. I don't see the need for it.

    If you listen to the internet heroes the Speed Triple is dangerously unstable and a steering damper is a must-have accessory. If you listen to those of us who've live with them they say they're utterly unnecessary.

    I suspect the internet heroes are all trying to justify the $400 they spent on a damper that other internet heroes convinced them to buy.

    Keep everything nice and tight and ride the damn thing.
