I have had my Aprilia SL1000 Falco for a bit now and while it has been broken a significant part of that time, I have ridden it what feels like a good amount. Sadly most of that riding has been to and from work, to and from my partner’s house, and only a couple fun solo rides. I really need to go on a group ride and fortunately around here that does happen frequently enough. But last night I was riding home from my partner’s house and it was the first time is felt comfortable and had fun riding the bike. Just actually happy to ride and enjoy the ride.

But it is a used bike that I am tired of working on, tired of looking at it, and I don’t get that look back after parking feeling from it. What I have always wanted as an affordable bike is a 2010 Triumph Speed Triple. Sadly I am being very much pushed away by my ownership of this bike to getting something used and old again. And then a really good friend of mine bought a brand new Street Triple R and my god is it pretty and now I can’t stop looking at buying a 18 or 19 Speed Triple RS. The new RS is crazy with all the features and tech besides being a solid bike with an amazing motor. It is down right sexy to boot, but $16,350 is a lot of cash and I really don’t want to finance another vehicle while financing my current vehicle. Someone help stop me from buying it, but knowing Oppo, you’ll all say do it....

(here is a photo dump of the Aprilia since I can’t get the slideshow to work)

At least the Triumph Speed Triple lights look amazing on the Aprilia
