This weekend, I went up to New Hampshire to test-drive a new 2008 Triumph Street Triple. It’s a lot like my 2000 Suzuki SV650, to be honest, although it’s got about $2000 more refinement in every aspect of performance and handling.
I’d been thinking of selling my bike, to be honest: I don’t use it all that often, it’s expensive to maintain and dangerous to ride, and so forth. But I had such a great day Saturday, even getting caught in the rain on the way home, that I’m more or less renewed in my moto-ownership.
I doubt I’ll make it up to the Greasebag Jamboree in Meredith – those guys look pretty intimidating – but we’ll see.
