Hi All, I’m new to Triumph Talk. I’ve been to another Triumph forum but they’ve been having a lot of technical issues.

No matter, my name is Marc and I bought a 2014 Speed Triple less than two years ago. I’ve only had sport bikes before but felt need to have a sport-standard/naked sport bike. I’ve been riding for over 20 years and enjoy the more upright position of the bike but getting more use to the seating position that keeps you kind of locked in. I’m also use to quiet bikes with standard pipes but this when came with the low boy Arrow exhaust that the first owner must have had put on as a option when he first bought it. It does have a nice rumble. Luckily when I bought it had new tires and battery I’ve changed all the fluids and have put new front brake pads. Have to admit I’m surprised of how long it takes to get parts from England. I’m use to Japanese sport bikes that parts are easily accessible.

Enough rambling from me, I look forward to look through related forum sections on this site.

-Marc

Hello and welcome to TT from up here in the northeast BBEER
You shouldn't have to get parts from England. There are good Triumph suppliers in the U.S. that I have used and I'm in Canada
Enjoy your bike and shout out if you need any leads on parts.
The ST is a very solid bike and once set up and ready to go, should give years of good service.
My 2006 Bonneville still runs like the day I took delivery.

Marc, welcome to TT from the Sunshine State. My son has a Speed Triple and he loves it. I have ridden it in the North Carolina mountains, and it is a great ride. The engines are nearly bullet proof. Enjoy that ride,
