2014 Street R in Denver

Hello Everyone!!! Last week I traded in my 2001 custom Harley Road King for a 2014 Street Triple 675R ABS with 6900 miles on it. Bike is super clean and bone stock. I have a Two Brothers S1R slip on and MZS shorty levers on the way. Hitting up a local track tomorrow to burn some laps. So, far the bike has been an incredible ride. Sucks the cold season is right around the corner, but luckily there are still plenty of good riding days in the winter here.

Love the st. If they didnt have daytona, I'd have that.

Btw, Please don't use those cheap ebay/amazon mzs levers. Many have had issues/failures on the road. Watch a youtube video called "the truth about cheap motorcycle levers". One of the first things I did was spend $200 on a quality set of CRG levers, one of the best in the competition.

I'm very aware of the potential safety concerns of Chinese levers. These had great reviews, and decided to give them a go for $45. I pumped the front brake 30-40 times 6 times in a row. The front brake never built up excessive pressure and the brakes released immediately every time. Unless you are referring some other type of failure. So far these levers have proved to be very well built and function perfectly. I appreciate you looking out though.

So, I finally had a chance to watch that video...... And that brake lever is coming off immediately. Like I said. Thanks for looking out.
