After about 5 years away from bikes, the time had come to get back on two wheels so I ended up buying a 2016 Street Triple 675 about a month ago. 8k on the clocks, FSH, a load of Triumph accessories as well as a couple of aftermarket touches. She's a right peach!

The first pic was new bike day, since then the side panels have gone gloss black, tail tidy has been fitted and I swapped out the Puig flyscreen for the Triumph screen, which suits it so much better. Have done almost 1,000 miles so far and i'm very impressed, looking forward to dry days over the coming months to really learn the bike and enjoy! Had a Hornet before and that was a very good allrounder, this just does everything better, though I am a sucker for an IL4 howl so might need a louder exhaust on the Street soon??

Will likely use this to post any updates on the bike in future, don't think there will be any major modifications but plan to travel a bit next year and maybe even, a track day.

I'd second that

I just picked up a 2012 (MY13) Striple R a couple of months back, it's a shame the weather has gone to shit recently as i was really enjoying riding it

They do sound ace with the Arrow exhaust on too

Black paint work, gold forks and black wheels.
I like it. Wink

Very nice, but personally I'd go with some gold rim tape rather than red.

The red rim tape is actually under the lacquer so not so simple to change. Good idea though, at least the red goes with the decals on the tail!
