Couple of weeks ago gave a buddy a ride up to the Triumph dealer to pick up his new Tiger 1200. While he was doing the paperwork they offered me a ride on a new R3, so what the heck. Liked it quite a lot. Amazing motor, good for pulling out tree stumps. Would be easy to get in over your with speed. Didn't get to take it thru any twisties though. Still itching for the new 900.
