I recently took a vacation down to the Smokey Mountains and figured I would get some riding in. Rather than tow my beloved 2009 FZ6 I set about figuring out what I could rent.
After a very brief period of research I settled on this 2012 Triumph Street Triple R from Sportbikes4Hire. I picked it up from their location right of US129 in Tennessee where I immediately made my way to the Tail of the Dragon to see what the fuss is about.
While the Tail was amazing, I can honestly say I preferred the surrounding roads a bit more. The Cherohala Skyway was especially fun to ride, corners were not as tight, but the views were much better.
I put close to 150 miles on the bike, but honestly, the mileage doesn’t do the ride justice.
There's so much I could write, but I'll just let the photos do the talking.
Needless to say, I’ve spent the last couple weeks searching for a used STR to add to my garage.
