Advice on new bike!

Post  Helmet Dave on Wed Jun 11 2014, 18:22

First topic message reminder :

So I have been toying for some time about a change of bike. Got a few ideas from radar at BC,  and after a small bit of research I am seriously considering one of these (Triumph sprint st 1050). Anyone had any experience with one? Or have opinions or views on the bike?
Any info appreciate!

Loved that bike, did a tour of the Pyrenees on it and did not find it uncomfortable at all..
Tyres were a bit pricey though  Shocked   rofl

Great bikes, I Loved the 2003 model. Raw and edgy, while the 207 was so capable it bordered on being too good!

Alex, yeah for sure that would be great mate! Working nights now, so not sure when. Just let me know when your thinking of heading down.

Radar- didn't realise you were a journo lol some nice info and even better metaphors in the articles!

Kwakkat nice one. The ST was my stand out favourite on paper. And also personally I think they look the best too!

Bloody ell Tel, that was a low blow. There again euro 550 was a bit juicy for 2 tyres. I haven't brought the subject up for a while, brought a smile to my face when you did though. I think even DBD will have a wry smile on his when he reads it.

I clearly remember telling Dirt Bike Dave that we would get more mileage out of those tyres than he would..........and we still are.  He made me  Shocked 

Anyhoos back to the subject.  I'd suggest......... A Thundercat Smile as I've no knowledge about the trumpet.

Good luck......hope you make a good choice. Good excuse to get some test rides under the belt Smile
