    Talking Hi from Aus....

    Hey all,

    first post here, just wanted to wave hello.

    am in the process of buying my first Triumph, a 2009 Spped Triple 1050 from a dealer up in QLD.

    looks to have all the right bits on it, 41,000kms, akrapovic cans and most importantly is in Matt black....

    will hopefully have have it all wrapped up tomorrow and shipped down here by the end of the week (fingers crossed).

    its going to get the cafe, clip on tkc80 treatment and can’t wait!

    If there’s anything I should know feel free to hit me up.

    thx

    Beware of some of the wankers from Austria on this site.

    Welcome Stumpi, you've bought a good model. By 2009 they'd cured all the small issues that plagued the 05-07 models. Looks a pretty good buy...I saw the add on bikesales.com.au.
    Where in Oz are you from?

    Sounds good.
    I decided I wanted a post 2011 for the updates, so just dropped coin on a 2012 1050 ABS one owner with 10,000 km on the clock... so stoked.
    should have it a few days...

    Nice. Welcome from NSW where we have no African crime gangs. We have plenty of other problems such as government incompetence, corruption and systemic sshortsighted.

    Love the black. Use decent ear plugs with that pipe.

    Long live VB

    The 11 aint as purty as the 09 but they still hammer.
