  2012 Triumph Speed Triple
Goodbye Portland, Hello Seattle

Hey All,

I'm a recent transplant to Seattle. Just looking for local biker talk and to go for some rides/meetups. I came from motorcycle dense area in SE Portland to a pretty barren one in Columbia City so I definitely need to do some exploring!

I am currently riding a 2012 Triumph Speed Triple with a few mods:

-Saddleman Chicane Seat
-Black powdercoated cans
-Led Signals
-Lowed pegs
-Woodcraft frame sliders
-Bar end mirrors
-R&G rear axle sliders
-Radiator/oil cooler guard
-custom silver paint with old style decals
-Probably more that I can't think of


Anyways, Nice to meet ya'll

Welcome. I like the seat, looks like it leaves plenty of room for us huge-balled Triumph riders.

I thought those were an after market option for those of you with Man-Ginas.

Thanks!

The headlights have been an internal struggle for me. They are the iconic feature of this bike but I have debated the single headlight conversion for a while...

Don't do it. The single light is so plain. Looks like an SV.
