I was looking at the duke and rc390, cbr500, and.. Daytona 675.. haha which will be my +1 when I get the money, or the street triple. This bike is so nimble and forgiving, I am glad I chose it.

Glad you're enjoying the R3, it's a blast to ride. Seems like our interests in bikes are identical - I almost pulled the trigger on the RC390, but in the end I went with the reliable Yamaha. Also, my next bike will be the Street Triple R, no doubt in my mind. I hear that howling triple in my dreams every night. Scary, to say the least. :laugh:

Yes, Yamaha just seemed overall better rated and more reliable for sure. Ugh the triple sounds amazing!

Yup, this bike is super fun. I'm glad I started with it as well. I've learned LOTS from it, and enjoying every mile.

x2 on the sound of the Triumph triple. I miss my old Dayton 675. It had the full Arrow exhaust and at WOT it sounded like the world was ending...
