First group ride with the Triumph Street Triple R

My first group ride with Band of Riders. There was 14 of us total and we stopped for ice cream. It got pretty dark quick, good thing I didn't wear my tinted visor.

Street Triple crashes in a tight corner
For licensing inquiries please contact licensing@break.com 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.

Triumph Street Triple 660 Test Ride | What A Glorious Bike!
In Australia, the LAMS (Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme) restricts riders to bikes of 660cc or less and limited power to weight. Triumph have kindly built a 660cc version of their Street Triple (normally 675cc) to sell to riders on a restricted licence. Thank you Triumph. The chassis, brakes, tyres and suspension are pretty much the same as the 675, so if you're looking for a "grown up" learner bike you can enjoy for years, this could be the one. I loved it. It's awesome. _______ Playlist of all my learner-legal motorcycle test rides: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwRDCXySBTdluSW0SyWAEws6ln4K6X-im Social Media!
