GoPro HD Hero 960 Triumph Street Triple Testride
Currently working on a different way to record the audio. Perhaps pulling
out the mic out of the cam and extending the cable will do the trick. Right
now it's either bad audio and good perspective or vice versa.
Feel free to comment to help improve my next videos.

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
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,
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.
2013 Triumph Street Triple - First Impressions Review
The Best Street bike in the World. IMHO.
The 2013 Triumph Street Triple lost approx 20 lbs from last years model,
and a few upgrades as well as %20 better fuel economy. It would be an
understatement to say this is perhaps the best naked street sport bike or
all around naked street fighter you can buy. The fit and finish and the
world class reputation that permeate the bikes history is almost anecdotal,
because when you ride this bike it transforms you.. It speaks to the "moto"
in all of us... or at least many of us.
Yes, it's a new bike with a few of the contemporary gadgetries that new
machines tend to be adorned with, however, this bike has soul and an "old"
one to be sure .. You really get a sense of the History. The "Triple"
moniker has been a staple of and to the Triumph name for nearly 50 years
The bikes history can be traced back even to the 1930's when the original
"Trident Tiger twin" evolved into the Triple to the 1960's when Triumph
first introduced the T150 (Trident triple), so this is far from a "one
trick pony" to be certain. It has roots and a very deep and rich history.
Granted the current Street and Speed Triples share almost nothing in common
with their ancestor bikes of yester-year however, Triumph seems to have
been able to have retained access to the past in terms of what makes a bike
fun to ride while inspiring confidence and pushing you to ride harder.
When you "kick" the bike over and hear the melodious sounds of the valves
tapping and the whirr and thunder of trio choir between your innards you
begin to feel special and all the angst and cacophony of your life begins
to disappear..... if only momentarily, you forget who you were and become
an active participant in a motorcycle history that is revered by many and
scoffed by few.
The reasons just stated aren't enough to buy a motorcycle ( at least for
some ) because after all, Motorcycles are to be ridden as well as
Why did i chose this bike ? Well a number of different reasons. I should
qualify my remarks by saying . I really don't like bikes that have more
than 2 Cylinders and if i was to purchase a bike that did it would have to
really get my attention. It's not to say I don't like Inline 4's but they
have become so homogenized, generic and typical you're hard pressed to
"stand-out" or be different on an i-4. I prefer V4's to the i4's Just more
character and makes for a narrower bike (good if you are on the shorter
side of five feet eight inches).
My Critera for Street bike:
1.) Price 2.) Height 3. ) Comfort 4.) Power 5.) Handling 6.) Ergonomics
7.) Style 8.) Practicality (if a motorcycle is remotely capable of being
practical) 9. ) Day to day riding 10.) Can it handle a track day ?
