    I'm looking at a 2008 white triumph speed triple. 17k miles on it. I haven't seen any bad reviews on it. Anybody had any experience with one? Starts great. Runs fine. Looks well maintained.

    Ah, the guys on TriumphRat aren't so bad. Just remember most of them are Limeys, and like a little ribbing.

    LOVE the speed triple. Simple, dependable injection system, no maintenance issues I'm aware of. Great suspension too.

    I've read nothing but great things about the Speed and Street Triple but have never ridden one. Yes, the people here are great.

    My friend has a 2008 speed triple. He likes it, but my bike gets all the looks and the comments.

    If you are looking for the best looking motorcycle, this is Buell XB.

    Most of the M/C world see's Triumph as a fringe motorcycle, but us Buellers see it as mainstream. Perspective I guess, haha.

    I like the way they look.

    It does look good. Sounds good too. I'm possibly trading in my Harley street 750 on it. I realized I'm not a cruiser type of guy. I was going to buy an 1190sx but was told by multiple people here that is not a good commuter. I also considered a Tuono but no one near me has one. This triumph would be a good in between bike.

    You're the guy that bought the one Harley street 750 they sold? Cool!

    JK:p The Triumph Street Triple would be a great commuter, but whats wrong with a Lightning? It's my first choice to throw my leg over for a comfortable, but super fun, daily ride. Bar, peg, and seat changes are all very easy for the exact riding position you want.
