So after selling my 2020 S1000R i was on the look out for an adventure style bike, something along the lines of a Honda Africa Twin or a Husqvarna Norden 901. My 4 year old has a keen interest in all things bike related so the plan was something a little more user friendly i could pop him onto with a top box and we could head away together for the day! Maybe jumping the gun a bit, as everything i sat him on he wasn't just tall enough to reach the rear pegs, which is a legal requirement for carrying a pillion! So i figured ill just shelve that idea for another year and enjoy a naked sports bike for another year lol

August 2021 Triumph Speed Triple RS 1200 . Was Phillip McCallen's demo and it only had 250 miles on it so after a bit of negotiating the deal was done to include a few aftermarket accessories. Front cowl/screen and heated grips etc...

Just brought it home on Saturday and it's an absolute dream... That 3 cylinder engine and 180hp it really is an unbelievable bike! Here's a few pictures from the day i test rode it. I'll update as we add a few more bits such as a tail tidy and the racefit exhaust!

An if you've got this far I sat my son on the rear seat hump and he can reach the rear pegs on this no problem lol The good lady is not happy lol
