Exclamation Sprint ST 1050

I'm in love.......saw the very first one in Lexington, KY, still in the crate, today! This bike is everything (cosmetically) that it was cracked up to be. Count me in before the year is out! I've read a couple of articles (2 US and 2 Euro) on it and they all claim that it is going to give the VFR a run for its money.......what'dya think?

Looks like a Honda to me. Actually, it really reminds me of my XX. I give it a thumbs up, but still wouldn't buy one. I like the Triumphs, but just don't want the hassle of hard to get parts, accessories, service, etc.

I love the way those triples ride though.

Take a test ride on it, and let us know when it will be in your garage!

I'm not mean, you're just a sissy.

Talking it won't be long.....

yeah, it won't be long. The dealer received the silver but I am leaning towards blue. I've ridden a lot of sport tourers and I am chomping at the bits to saddle this beast! I've considered everything from the VFR to the Futura but this one has my eye!

One thing is for sure, the yearly touring is going to get alot more comfy!!!
