2012 Triumph Street Triple R Buttonwillow Raceway Keigwins @ the Track March 3, 2012
I ran my brand new ~1200 mi Triumph Street Triple R on the track for the 1st time with Keigwins. Dave Moss of Catalyst Reaction setup my suspension after the first session and the bike handled like a dream. Riding in the B- group I was pulling mid 2:20 laps, but came no where near the bikes capabilities. Next time I'll have to stone up and carry more speed through "Riverside" and "The Sweeper" corners. What a great day to be at the track!
Arrow exhaust for Ducati Streetfighter
Arrow slip-on Exhaust for Ducati Streetfighter. I played all three right at the beginning so you can get a good idea of the difference. You really can't tell by the camcorder just how much louder it is. I rode for 15mi after I finished this, and I had pressure in my ears when I got back. Its LOUD. Its definitely got the lowest and most grumbley tone of any Exhaust I've heard yet for the SF. Thought I'd make a good vid because there weren't any out, and I took a shot in the dark with the Arrow. Couldn't be happier.
Triumph - Street Triple 2011/12 model!! new headlights! Low mileage
I made this video for the sale of my Triumph Street Triple - sorry about the quality...
It is located in Oxford, UK.
If you would like more information about it, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or go on www.gumtree.com where I have posted an ad for it, along with a full description of the beast.
If you copy and paste the title of the video into the Gumtree search bar it should be the first video on the list.
Street Triple crashes in a tight corner
2008 Triumph Street Triple lowsides in a tight corner on Panoramic Highway. :(
Skip to 2:15 for the crash, slow motion replays, and video of the damage. The Exhaust sound in the video is from the camera bike, not me. The bike and the tires were not at their traction limit. The road had to have been the major factor. I have leaned quite farther on this bike before. I was completely unhurt - not a scratch, no bruises, nothing was even sore. Wear your gear on rides like this.
Looking at the slow motion video, you can see my handlebars turn (front tire loses traction) at the same time as the rear tire loses it. I did not touch the brakes at all.
The damage to the bike:
Bent handlebar at the clamp (fixed by loosening the bolts and re-tightening)
Scratched clutch lever and bar end (non-issue really)
Lost the turn signal switch
Scratched mirror (it rotated on its mount, so it didn't break off, non-issue)
Bad scratch on the engine case
Shifter bent 90 degrees
Rear plastic cracked
The tank was untouched. I rode the bike home. The only thing I'm replacing is the shifter.
As for my gear: tiny scratch on the jacket, boots and pants only scratched on the plastic sliders, and one glove was scratched on the carbon fiber knuckle. The helmet did not impact.
My gopro was on the bike following me, so I don't have on-board footage. This was my first crash after 2 years of riding.
