So just for fun I test rode a Speed 1050. Wicked motor, and unreal brakes. It's the only one in my price range I could see myself not wanting to re-build the suspension so the $5700 I'm looking at isn't too bad. Kind of sledgehammerish thought and didn't turn as nicely as the 675.

So, SV1000 or Street triple or maybe Speed triple? Any Triumph is gonna cost a lot more than an SV and it's unlikely I'll be able to test ride an SV. Do they have that grin factor I'm loving on the Triumphs? I did have a Superhawk that I didn't like at first because all I knew was I-4's but it eventually grew on me and I only sold it because my car got better mileage and the range was a joke. I do miss the V-twin though!
