Beautiful. I was sitting on T100's and SE's today while the dealer was performing some recall work on my Tiger 800. Such a great looking bike.

Bueller,
Thanks, now if I had the Tiger 800 to sit alongside the Bonnie in my shed then I would be a very happy man!
Cheers
Dave

Speed Triple on Dirt Roads

Has anybody had a speed triple on a dirt rode? Is there enough lock to lock steering to work in tight spaces and slide around? Do the ergonomics lend themselves to standing up at all?

I rode 1050 several years ago, but didn't evaluate in this way. I loved the engine. I'm tired of riding a single cylinder, but I can't have something totally useless on a dirt road. I'm fine with the 17 in wheels. I don't like to ride bikes with fairings, although that red ST is very pretty.

Tiger 800 XC would be SO much better in that regard than a Speed Triple.

Agreed, but the orange S3 calls to me. I currently ride a 690 sm that I adore, but I would like to have a multi cylinder to ride farther distance. I just don't want to give up my dirt roads completely. I like the riding Bonneville, even on the dirt, but I can ride it to its limits on the pavement if I treat it like the KTM. I liked the FZ1 but found the engine a bit sluggish till the rpm was cranked (and it had a fairing). The 675 and 1050 engines are two of my favorite power plants. I was amazed that the 675 Daytona had much more roll on responsiveness than the gen2 FZ1. I might consider a new Z1000. I have a boner for some multicylinder power.

69 Bonny

I gotta say it was a 69 650 Bonny that got me hooked on 2 wheels. It wasn't the fastest, shaked, rattled, you trickled them Amals & kicked her until you were blue to start her, constantly tightening loose bolts but she could corner, do 112mph with 2 up and man could she torque from 0 to 60 mph.

All I can say is the 69 Bonny was and still is one of the Sweetest rides on 2 wheels as she taught me what it's all about and why I still ride, some 45 years later.

I have never ridden one of the older Bonnevilles, but I really like the new ones. I could live with a T100. I like the Scrambler better, but I prefer the 360 crank engine. Me and the wife on the 2006 T100 below.

Triumph if you are listening add a sixth gear, more front brake, and 15 more hp and I will take care of the rest.

Not a Speed but my wife on her Street Triple R did OK on 18 miles of this...

here she is asking me over our intercoms "Now what do I do?" to which I said "Ride through it!" first of two creek crossings.






As mentioned, I was much happier on my Tiger 800XC. Jodie said she was fine on her Street Triple but she wants to demo a regular Tiger 800. Limiting factor of the Street or Speed is tires, they're always going to suck on loose surfaces.
