Smile My first bike.

Hello all,
I am Con from Perth, WA and am now the proud owner of a 2007 Triumph Street Triple. The bike is like new however I have added a rear tail tidy and replaced the existing mirrors with the bar end black anodised. Small but do the job nicely.
I am also looking to replace the existing chrome mufflers with either Arrow or 2 Brothers carbon cans looking for a nice deep growl. Any recommendations out there on either or maybe another brand?
I have added a few photos of my bike, i hope they loaded properly and welcome any comments.
Regards conmag.

Welcome aboard. How did you get a 'big bike' for a first bike?

2007? I thought '08 was the first year? Not a good choice for a first bike, but welcome to the club.

Typical intro "Hi. This is my new bike. What exhaust should I put on it?"

Welcome. Nice looking bike.

Default A few questions and comments..

1. Are you in Washington state or Australia? The license plate is huge..

2. Your bike looks brand new. You did your homework and found a beauty.

3. I hope you have a enclosed garage to keep it. I remember living in the NW, you get a little rain!!

4. Take a look at the Leo Vince GP Pro exhaust. It has that deep sound and saves 20 pounds. I will be glad to post pics if needed.

5. Everyone is concerned that you purchased a 675 for your first bike. Tell us more about this decision.

6. This being your first bike you will have no idea how great it is because you don't have a comparison. Don't worry about looking at a 1000cc in 9 months! You will regret the day you sell your Street triple.

7. Most of all welcome to the obsession of motorcycling.. Take it easy and ride safe..

Dont buy pipes, buy gear and trackdays you will need them and band aids.

Also from ym knowledge that is not a US plate so guessing he is Aussie, Id like to know how he got a big bike I thought you all had laws down there preventing this type of mistake.
