Re: [St] ST Pictures


I always say if youre happy with youre current ST stick with it. The only reason I have a 05 ST is because my 99ST met an untimely demise when a wayward puppy ran in front of me and I chose the front brake instead of the throttle. With the benefit of hind sight, I should have kept the bike and repaired it myself as the damage was all cosmetic but extensive as it fell on the right side. My knee still hurts.

The 05+ ST still carrys on as a great motorcycle, but in my humble opinion it just lacks a certain character that the previous series has. My 99 ST is still the best bike for its time I've had so far.

Triumph really took a backward step on this one and they are stubbornly?

persisting with it. The previous series factory luggage could fit a full 
face helmet in each box. Packing for a trip, even two up, I found I 
always had enough carrying capacity. Some people like the new luggage, 
but considering the boxes are huge but hold bugger all they are a waste 
of precious space.?

The best option I have found is GIVI with SW Motech brackets.?




That's my impression too.  If, and it's a big if right now, if I ever go 
to the new gen ST I'll be buying GIVI's and selling, or trading in, the 
OEM bags if they come with the bike.?

Anywhoo.  Nice bikes guys.  Even if you never show us both sides of them :p?
