What do you thing of the power difference between the 2 bikes. My neighbor has a triumph Sprint and wants to race. I told him only in a straight line. By the way I have a F that is completly stock I dont know much about the triumph but I do know I have been riding a lot longer than him so I might have an advantage.

Funny I was thinking about getting the Triumph Sprint GT but I can't resist the 2012 NRS. So I traded in my 09 VRSCAW.

the Sprint had NO SOUL. It was a great commuter-sorta like a prius....

As for a race/comparison, the sprint might beat off the line. that triple is such a fun engine- i swore it was gonna kill me back in my hooligan days when i rode a speed triple around the year 2000.

I figure this is just a larger more fun version of my night train i got rid of back in december.

See attached picture...

goody boxes started arriving today from Ghost Rider Customs: radiator grill screens, new headlight mount, glass coolant hose.

Last week the Bob Dron fairing came

Waiting for the V&H 2 into 1 pipe- hopefully this week

waiting for clamps....

Later in the week Rizoma clip-ons should arrive....

this is what i missed when i had the Triumph. I love building/constructing/modifying/customizing.....
