FS: 2009 Triumph Speed Triple 1050

I know this board isn't really the target market for this but maybe one of you knows someone interested.

I bought this bike from the original owner in late 2010. He had only put ~1500 miles on it. It's now at about 15,000. I used this for my daily commute for a few years, plus a few weekend getaways with my wife, but I just don't ride much anymore and other pursuits beckon.

2009 Speed Triple 1050
Triumph Gel Seat
Aftermarket Tail Tidy / rear fender eliminator
Factory front bikini fairing and chin fairing
New Michelin Pilot Power rear tire just mounted and broken in
New matching Michelin front tire included but not mounted
Carbon fiber low-mount slip-on muffler (original under-seat dual exhaust with catalytic converter included, perfect condition)
Bike has a tune on it for the slip-on. TuneECU tuning software and cable included - very easy to return to stock.
New EBC "wave" rear brake rotor and pads
Locking gas cap removed and replaced with screw-on cap (the locks are notorious for seizing up on these bikes, which happened to me several years back)
Amsoil motorcycle oil since new, changed every 2,500 miles with a Triumph filter.
Brake fluid flushed yearly.
Chain cleaned every 1,000 miles, has only been adjusted once.
I have a magnetic tank bag that can go with the bike if the new owner is interested.

This bike has never been crashed, dinged, dropped, or abused. It has a couple small stone chips in the chin fairing and one of the front turn signal flanges has a crack in it. Other than that, it's in perfect condition and has never given me any trouble. It's a great all-around bike with a comfortable riding position. The engine has a fantastic sound and feel to it. The 2009-2010 Speed triples are particularly desirable because they are the last years of the original styling and they have the best brakes (Brembo) and engine/trans.

Asking $6,500. Located in Glenwood, MD. E-mail me with any questions. johnvitamvas at gmail

I'll give you $100 for it.
Done.

Now, you are sure. You're keeping it.

Looks like this is sold. New owner is flying in on Saturday to pick it up and drive home. :/

Thanks.

Yeah, I'm not sure how I'll feel about this one in a month, or a year. I'm guessing I'll have some level of regret; I've regretted every vehicular sale to some degree. Well, except my Taurus SHO. Good riddance to that blue oval POS.

I am sure I'll own another bike before too long, but right now I just don't have the itch to ride much, and it pains me to watch this one sit.
