I have a longtime friend, Richard Acosta, MSgt, USAF Ret., who is now a Maintenance Analyst military contractor. I presided over his last re-enlistment ceremony at Nellis AFB, NV. Recently he said he has two friends, SSgt Samuel Gasperin de Dios, 455 ELRS and Bradly Moore a military contractor Maintenance Analyst, who both showed an interest in the Triumph Street Triple. All three are working at Bagram AB, Afghanistan. Richard knows I conduct road tests and he asked for my opinion. So I am dedicating this Quick Look Road Test to them. This test covers the 2014-2013 Street Triple as it is the same model.

I’m writing about my recent experience at the MR2 Michigan ride event down in Waynesville, NC. Keith Danielson a fellow MSTA member and I trailered down our bikes for part of the weeks activities. Leaving on Mothers day was a nonstarter for either of us so we joined the group in the middle of the week. The first day out, we went for the ultimate Route 4 journey hitting Deal’s gap (twice), The Cherohala Skyway and part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was a glorious day without a lot of traffic and we had the run of the roads for the most part. After 310 miles it was time to call it good for the day having hit the (3) majors I wanted to accomplish on this ride.

Safe is the key word here since the main reason I was able to buy my 2008 Speed Triple was the fact that I had been wearing all my gear when a deer in Paw Paw, Michigan, decided to end his life by T-boning me. I still remember the emergency room nurse eyeing my gear impressed that I was able to walk out with nothing more than a broken collarbone.
