    Bike looks great and has intriguing upgrades! I'm excited to check this one out first hand. Will it make it state-side??:ear

    Hmmmm, I tested the Street and Speed Triple today...... Speedy is a CRACKING bike. Now, do I wait for the Tiger Sport to compare..... Speedy I tested had an Akrapovic system on it, AWESOME!!!! I see the Triumph Australia site has it listed for March, at a price lower than the Speed Triple. Very tempting.

    One of the pictures shows the same luggage as the Sprint GT. I dig the fully adjustable suspension. This would have definitely been in the running before I bought my GT.
