My 2010 Speed Triple packed up for a camping trip last week. What a great all around bike.



I use a Ventura rack and it works great. I can take off the tall rack while I am out and just have a normal grab bar.


Here it is in normal daily trim. No rack or pillion pegs.

I have the same setup on my 2010 S3 also. But I haven't mounted the Ventura since getting the Arrows. How did you get around the welded nuts to mount the L brackets? Simply longer bolts and another nut inboard of the welded ones?

I went the cheap route and used my dremel to grind the welds off. I was planning on getting new bolts but couldn't find any in my spares so I just reused the old ones. They are clean enough to get a socket on. I have put it on and taken it off about 4 times now and haven't had a problem. I can do it in about 10 minutes.

Living on an island 50 km long by 20 km wide, with a lot of traffic, this is all the bike I need..... 15 years old, it has done 208,000 km (130,000 miles), and gets better than 100 mpg. Top speed? I guess about 115 km/hr, but who knows for sure, and who cares?

My baby already has almost 600 miles on her and I've had her less than 3 weeks! Best bike I've ever owned.
