3333 km for Z900.. ( see in the previous pages )
that's not much for a retiree like me  :034:

except that... :084:

 
I add the counters of my "beauties"... :062:   You should  post pics of all your bikes. Also how does the Z compare to the Street triple since you own both?
means that approach 18.000 km for 2020.. :016:

@LedZep70  :002:
I can possibly show photos of my Triumph but I'm not sure moderator accepts them  :110:
It is above all place for Z900,is not it  :016: He may tell me where I can create a subject  :084:
then, it's hard to compare things so different  :034: I love Triumph so much that I may not be objective.
Z900 is not a mistake.  :008: I wanted a 4 cylinder who still looks like 'old generation' ( my generation..as sings Rogey Daltrey  :169:)
I mean no or almost no electronics. a not too expensive bike that allowed me to own the last big 4 cylinders at home.
the twin cylinders ( T120 & Bobber) remind me of my 70s motorcycles  :002:
the 3 cylinders remind me that I could have won motorcycle race  :152:... if I had been a good rider  :012:
the 4cylinders.. my Z900 is like a pair of good shoes.not necessarily fashionable but where do you feel comfortable  :169:
not excellent in one area but good everywhere all the time.
obviously, 765 RS is much more in everything.. but it's not the same price  :112: so, of course equipment will make the difference.. still have to be good enough to use them.we could talk about it for hours.. :821: but my english... :745:
and anyway, there are not bad or good motorcycles  :084:
there are those that we like, the one we hate but they are all beautiful and good. :027:
the important thing is to be happy with the one you have chosen...

to finish with humour, it's easier to clean 3 than 4  :745:

I hear ya! You can tell you have a thing for Triumphs for sure!! Ive debated getting a street triple for years and maybe one day I will get one before I get too old! I love my Z so it would be hard getting rid of it! Also need a bigger garage as mine is getting full already! 👍

I'm also very keen on Triumphs but don't like the bug-eyed look of the Street Triple. I've had a Daytona 955i and a Sprint ST 1050. My 955 had a single slip on and my ST had triple underseat slip ons and they both sounded awesome.

My Son has a Daytona 675 with full Arrow system and that also sounds really good but that's way to head down, bum up for me to ride nowadays.

Its also great that Moto2 use the Triumph 765 triple now.
I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure!

I work for Triumph so I can pretty much ride any of them as and when I feel like it, my last bike was a Speed Twin, great bike but I found the limits of it's performance quite quickly and wanted something a bit more. The Street Triple RS is great but too small for me, and although it has similar power it has less torque than the Z and that's the important bit for day to day riding, when I ride the Street Triple I find that I'm wringing it's neck the whole time , and apart from anything else  I've always loved the Zeds. I did get some funny looks when I turned up to work on it for the first time though.  :745:
