Thumbs up Never thought Id enjoy a scalpel between my legs this much

Hi everyone,

Picked up my 790 last month and loving it so far. Sold my Street Triple R which was an incredible motorcycle, but I had ridden it for 2 years and felt it was time for a change.

Test rode a lot of bikes from the MT09SP to the new Street Triple RS and even some more unusual bikes like the Zero DS which is incredible btw, but nothing put a bigger smile on my face than the 790.

Here she is fresh off the boat

Waiting on some parts, tail tidy, akra exhaust (although Im thinking I should have got the remus now, oh well) mirrors and some heated grips for winter. Approaching 400 miles so will get the parts fitted on the first service and get that rev limit lifted

Nice to meet you all, and look forward to hearing more about everyones experiences.

Fantastic click bait title, well done lol. I've also been having a look at some Zero bikes. Its really impressive what they have been able to deliver, especially with the SR.
