I bought my strontium yellow T595 January of 98 as a birthday present to myself. I wanted a sportbike, but something a little different. I liked the color and looks of it and after a test ride, I was sold. The bike has just turned 24,000 miles and the 955 Triple is still running strong with good power from 3000 rpm -10,000 rpm. It also stops and handles very good. The front brakes are excellent with power to spare, though the rear is a tad weak. The suspension was ok, but the forks were a little soft. At 20,000 and numerous 2nd gear wheely landings the suspension needed help. I installed Racetech Goldvalves and weight matched springs. What a difference, better than new. The stock seat isn't very comfortable so I replaced it with a leather Corbin. Its a long reach to the clipons but has plenty of leg room. The stock muffler looks like it came off a Toyota, so I replaced it with an under seat exhaust from Black-Widow. It also filled in a slight midrange dip in power and sounds great. I thought the black muffler and wheels hid the cool single sided swingarm, so after the exhaust I had the wheels polished. I have never had a bike that draws so much favorable attention. I love it! Thanks Triumph.
