Beware, there is a dark side in all of us. The little voice that says, “Turn the throttle more,” and “corner harder” and “pass everyone.” But the reality is that while we want all this, we also would like to have a smooth, comfy ride, to sit like a human person, have a little rational fun and—dare we say it?—a dose of practicality. The Triumph Speed Triple, with its refined suspension, radial brakes and super-muscled 1050cc engine with disinfected fuel-injection (no more bugs!) does all that rational everyday stuff and corners like a sportbike, wheelies like a dirtbike and tours like a…well, two out of three ain’t bad! All this for just under $10K. It’s almost criminal. Beware your little voice.
