My Life As A Scooter

Ramblings from the mind of a scooter. Yes this is a blog written for scooters, from the point of view of a Scooter.

Now he wants a Triumph....

Our ride to work today was really great.  There was a small amount of fog once more, but it made for a cool, and fun ride.

As regular readers of this blog will know, Anthony loves bikes....not just scooters, but all kinds of bikes - whether its scooters, sportsbikes, retro or custom bikes, race bikes.......if it looks good, goes fast and is shiny...he's into it.  And lately he's developed a thing for Triumphs, especially the 675cc Street Triple.    (Yes he's switched from Italian to British.....)

Thankfully for me, his interest is only at the dream stage and there's no chance of me being sold anytime soon to indulge his new found enthusiasm for this awesome bike.   So what do I think of the Triumph?  I love it, particularly the "R" version.

Anthony had a chance to swing a leg over the triple at the bike show (it's the black one pictured in Sunday's blog post)

Here is one of the promo shots of the new 2010 Street Triple R.....

Not bad at all!! 

So I'll let Anthony keep dreaming.....

One blog that we regularly checkout, (and have mentioned here before), is Motorcycle Paradise, and IC's post from sunday has some awesome photos and info about an afternoon ride that he did.   Here is the route....

It looks like a great road....have to check that one out one day....(we'll just add it to the list!!!!)

So for all of you who are riding somewhere today - either home from work, or the shops, or maybe you are one of the lucky ones who is already outdoors carving up some bitumen somewhere......Have an awesome ride, stay safe and we'll see you soon!!

Cheers

Derbi

Dave was looking at a Triumph as well.  He is having a test ride on a Thunderbird when he gets back from Newcastle.  He was looking at this bike last year when it was just realeased.
