My Triumph Street Triple R Crash
Lowsided when the front end washed out on some gravel. No front brake or
anything, just slipped out mid turn. GB Racing frame sliders saved the
entire bike, only some scratches left on the Exhaust, which I have since sanded out. Looks
good as new!

Für das Jahr 2013 hat Triumph die Street Triple R nicht einfach nur frisch
geschminkt, sondern ihr eine umfangreiche Frischzellenkur spendiert. Reicht
das für ein Top-Rating? Den Artikel dazu könnt Ihr im Motorradfahrer in

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.
Ducati Streetfighter 848 vs Triumph Street Triple R! - On Two Wheels Episode 25
On this episode of On Two Wheels, Sport Rider Magazine's Bradley Adams and
Eric Nugent pit Ducati's Streetfighter 848 against Triumph's all-new 2013
Street Triple R as part of this year's middleweight naked bike comparison.
The two quickly learn that planning a trip in the middle of January wasn't
their smartest decision in recent years, but ultimately discover how
versatile these bikes truly are. In typical On Two Wheels fashion, only one
bike can come out on top, but which will it be? Triumph's lighter, 675cc
Street Triple R, or Ducati's elegant, traction control-equipped

Scramble ME: A Triumph Scrambler Adventure with Ernie Vigil
Professional freestyler Ernie 'EDUB' Vigil started working with Triumph a
while back. He and his partner Nick 'Apex' Brocha recently ran an Iron Butt
Association Challenge -- Border-to-Border Insanity -- where Ernie got to
know and love the Triumph Scrambler. He wanted to create a film to
demonstrate the Scrambler's up-for-anything versatility -- 'from track to
dirt to date,' as Ernie put i

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.
Triumph Speed Triple R 2012 - Test Jerez Racetrack
Auch in der Speed Triple R leistet der 1050 Kubik große Dreizylinder
