    Picked up a 2019 Street Triple R 765 for the wife over the weekend.

    Rode it 120ish miles home and have to say it is quite the capable bike. Flicks through corners easy, 6 speed gear box with 2nd that can run out to 80mph@12500 rpm.

    A little cramped for someone 6'4, but she got the low ride height version that has a different subframe to make it lower instead of shock linkages.

    I will be riding it on occasional sub 1 hour jaunts.

    There are 2 Triumph dealers in Houston. The customer service sucks at one of them and neither had the low ride height version in stock. So we drove to Austin and bought it there.
