TRIUMPH STREET TRIPLE RS
FUEL 17.4 litres @ 49mpg = 187 miles WEIGHT 166kg (claimed, dry) SEAT 825mm POWER 121bhp TORQUE 57ftlb THERIDER Joe Dick Ridden since he was three, Lifelong bike lover with five years road riding experience HEIGHT 5ft 6in WEIGHT 68kg email@example.com I’m off to meet my mate who lives on the Swiss border before heading into the Alps to hunt down its best riding roads, and what better bike to do it on than the sporty RS. The only real challenge was luggage. I’ve not found any bespoke options, so I had to look for a universal one. I settled for the Qbag Tank Bag 7 (£93.99) up front and the DXR Camel Sport Universal Panniers (£59.99, both sportsbikeshop. co.uk) on the rear. I’m shipping the bike out to Geneva with Bike Shuttle then munching some Alpine twisty goodness once I’ve collected the RS. Hopefully I can fit all my camera kit into the 95 litres of newfound storage, too.
That’s what 95 litres of luggage looks like
