Had mine since April, 1500 miles of sheer fun, very responsive and handles well on our pot holed A & B roads in the South West.
Best tip - wait for an aftermarket flyscreen, the Triumph one is useless and expensive (£175).
Buy one, you will not regret it!

Had mine about 4 weeks (1000mile) just getting used to it, very light and easy to ride would suite just about any rider as its very tame at low revs with a very broad power band but goes like the space shuttle above 8 grand.
Brake are really good and very progressive, well balanced.
Get a wind blast about 75-80 so long hauls may be tiring but still lots off fun, quality seems good only complaint is that they dont give you a hugger, tool kit flyscreen as standard. Switched the silly blue gear change lights off as they were doing my head in.
Its sounds great and it can get a bit addictive as it encorages you to give it the beans.
I will keep this for few years, looking forward to the 2010 IOM

Sold a CBR6 in August bought a STR Sept 09
Bad points (yes I found 2)
Dunlop Qualifier front tyre and Dunlop qualifier rear tyre
They were sssoooooo bad I had to get rid of them after 2000 miles still life in them but the grip was so bad there may not have been life in me by the time they required changing
Metzler Roadtec Z8's have transformed the bike into what it was meant to be
Great scratcher at weekends, commuting is a joy the engine allows you to filter as there is always power, forget gears it does not matter
touring, yes you can, get creative in fitting luggage with arrow under seat exhausts
This bike is everything I wanted, amazingly it out does the CBR on everything. Press always said that CBR 6 was the best all round bike, sorry disagree STR does it all better with a much bigger grin whilst doing it
I can see why Triumph were caught out and can't make enough, bad business model (sorry criticism Triumph) but the only one I have
I wonder how many other STR's will be at the IOM TT?

Takes a pillion fine. Not ideal for anything longer than an hour really as the back footrests are quite high up, otherwise the wife is out on mine all of the time

My missus enjoys going on the back of mine without any complaints,after an hour a break is reccomended though

Had one and put 9,000 miles on it, the best bike I ever had. It will out do most other bikes on the twisties and is very comfortable and the engine is one of the best.Suitable for new and experienced riders, it made me feel like Barry Sheen.
Get one you will not be disappointed.
But please bring back the round headlights.
