Default Speed Triple. Anyone got one?

I'm considering moving on from the SV1000 and think I might fancy a speed triple. Anyone got one, had one know lots about them?

Also do you know of the equivalent forum to this (if there could be such a thing) as google seems to throw up loads of forums which all seem a bit less useful.

Ta,
Mark

Had one, but not anymore, Rictus is probably your man to talk too, there are a couple of triple owners on here, but can't remember who

I looked at buying a t595 one. The old ones do the same gearbox exploding trick as the t5 daytonas, considering all fun and games orose has had I would not buy a 1050!

I've got an 09 1050. Absolutely love it. The radiator fan packed up 1800 miles in which was replaced under warranty and now at 9.5k miles on the clock it's never missed a beat. Get one, you won't regret it.

As far as a forum resource, I've had plenty of useful info from here:
