I didn’t really have any destination in mind when I set out on the Street Triple just after lunch time; my objectives being simply to complete the next phase of running in (get past 800 miles) and to clear my head. The official running in schedule calls for <7,000 rpm between 600-800 miles and at 770 miles at the start of the day I simply needed to unlock the 8,000 rpm limit on the little Triumph charger.
Well the ride so far succeeds on both fronts taking in Norwood, Otley, Langbar, Bolton Abbey and now Burnsall Bridge where I decided to grab some scran stopping at the Wharfe View Tea Room for gammon, egg, pineapple and chips, washed down with a ‘milky coffee’. For those younger than 40, that’s what Latte was called before Starbucks except the milk is heated in a pan then added to instant coffee. 😂
I’m starting to get really comfortable now with the bike and my cornering and slow speed maneouvering has really improved so it’s fitting that I start to do a few pleasure trips in my adopted homeland of North Yorkshire.
I don’t have a vast experience of different bikes and obviously would love to try the Fireblade and R1 at some point however all in all its hard to imagine many other bikes being quite as versatile and as much fun as the little (?) 675R which simple loves to eat up the miles.
