My new Triumph Sprint ST...

Picked it up today... A Triumph Sprint ST. First impressions, I Love it! I never realized riding a motorcycle could actually be comfortable! It is powerful and has lots of torque as well. I'm heading out to the beach this week, but can't wait to ride again!

Re: My new ride...

love everything but the grab rails. And quite frankly, after riding a bike w/ digital readout, couldn't go back to analog.

Be fast or be last.

I was hesitant about it but I actually like having the analog... Besides, in the right hand screen, I can get continous MPG or avg speed, max speed, trip timer... and more

Re: My new ride...

Now THAT sounds like fun then - although I'd end up staring only at the MPG to see if I can best my highscore.

Re: My new ride...

Congratulations! I'm going to want long term updates...

How much does it weigh? Does it carry the weight high?

Definately heavier than the 636 and more top-heavy. The brakes as Bwhip had mentioned about his are a bit mushy. Once I get back, I'll re-bleed them. The sales guy warned me that these brake pads would take a few hundred miles to bed in

Anyway, I really enjoyed the ride!
