Oh, yeah. I forgot to compliment you on the article. I have enjoyed all of your reviews, especially since you tend to ride/test the bikes I really like. You should get your hands on a Buell XB12Ss. I know the Triumph has character, but I doubt it has as much as the Buell.

That's not the right photo of the Millau Viaduct - the actual bridge is an unbelievable sight, sometimes you ride over the clouds!

All kinds of people sell bags. A lack of factory bags is no barrier to getting an ST if you really like it.

Want mine? I've loved it for 7,000km but it's too sporting. I have a GSX-R 1000, there's just no point in having two extremely fast sporting bikes.



I'm headed towards a ST1300. But if you're not in Canada, no luck I think.

A few thoughts then but be it be clear, this was no comparo. The futura is getting a bit old and in terms of power and engine refinment its starting to lack compared to VFR, 1050 and even ST3. As much as I do like VFR's, never liked the VTEC version with their power step when the VTEC comes on and being 20 RWHP down on the 1050 is something you'd notice. The 1050 feels roomier, at least for my 6'4". If there's another bike that'd be high on my list for my kind sport-sport-touring, it'd be the old Superbalckbird, but it needs a serious update by now.

Good story Yossef. I recently purchased a 2006 Sprint ST and I am enjoying its virtues.



I was wondering how you attached your tank bag, given the fact that the fuel tank is fibreglass?
