I’ve got the same ( unless you got the ‘R’ version )
Got it new and it still makes me grin like a maniac when I’ve been out to play on it.
The handling is sweet but can go off quick if the tyre pressures aren’t right.
Loads of low down grunt and a good finish - nothing rusty yet ( ACF50 helps)
Loads of farkles available to bling it up
What’s not to love?

Noob question,

What’s the difference between the street/speed triple? And then between the street triple, street triple r, and the ts?

Streets a 675 , Speed is a 1050, triple r has brembos and ohlins suspension don't know what ts has or hasn't got

What you think of the engine six?
Took me a while to get used to the triple when I bought my triumph.
Love it now though.

Good plan. I ditched Facebook several years ago as I was fed up with the amount of time it took up. I’d never go on it now.
