Just a quick update, but the Street Triple arrived at the dealership yesterday, so I popped over there today to have a look at it and sign some papers. It's bloody beautiful, and because I opted for the R in the low ride height I can flat foot it too (I know it's not 100% necessary, but I was on tip toes with the standard height bike and I have a lot of manoeuvring to do at home, I filter a lot, etc etc).

I'm collecting it next Thursday morning, and in the interim they're fitting heated grips, tail tidy, grab rails, frame protectors and paddock stand bobbins. I'm really excited, and the day after I collect it I'm booked in for an ACF-50 treatment. That's in Chesham, which is a lovely ride from where I live.

I think you're right - I'll start one when I pick it up :)

The MT is lovely - just don't take your bloke's bike out for a ride! I was only meant to be wasting a couple of hours while they tinkered with my Twin :scratch:

I think I’ve missed a bit. The twin lasted a month and you’re switching to a triple?
2018 BMW R nineT
“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Ah, well... I took the Twin in for its 500 mile spa and tested the Triple for a couple of hours... absolutely LOVED it. When they tried to sell me one I told them the only way I was buying it was if they were prepared to give me everything I spent on the Twin towards it.

The rest is history :lol:

That and the fact that it’s 5 st lighter! So fast and nimble, and just a joy to ride.
