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.

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.
