Well ,as I said I sold my speed triple and bought a honda 599. So a report card on the triumph: It had great power, a ton of mid-range urge. I will miss that. But the damn thing was uncomfortable, for me anyway. A strange ergo package, with ungodly stiff suspension. Maybe it was the year, a 2000 model. I bought it to have a standard, comfortable bike, but found it to be anything but. High pegs, wide, too wide bars, and a long reach too boot. Anyway I enjoyed having the triumph, and the attention it gathered. But the 599 is so much a better all around bike. Good memories on the s3, many more I'm sure on the 599. Cheers!
