Definetly Australia. It kinda looks like that plate is for a car though - not a bike. Im most states the bike plates are smaller. Looks like zip ties were needed as its too big for the fender...

I don't think he said (or it is) his first bike. He lives in Perth. It's the capital of Western Australia. It doesn't rain much there.

Welcome to the club, Con.

Yes I am in Australia and Perth is the capital of Western Australia.

Thanks for your feedback and comments.

Hi Florida Bob,
I am in Australia and yeah the plate is huge, sort of detracts from the look of the rear end. I certainly do keep it under a cover in a locked garage. It is really my first BIG bike after 1 year on a 250cc. A mate has the Speed Triple and really liked the look and feel of it, so I went for the smaller brother, which is more than enough power for me.....for now :) There was a little cosmetic damage as the previous owner dropped it but i have tidied that up.
I'd love to see some pics of the LV exhaust.
Thanks Con.

A friend of mine with a street triple had the arrow lowboy. It sounds great and looks good too. Also shaved a bit of weight off the bike.

Nice thing about the street is that the tail doesn't look like it's missing something if you do go with a lower exhaust. Now my friend's previous bike, a Honda 919 which also had an undertail exhaust system, just looked awful imo with a low or side mounted exhaust.
