about to.....

buy a 2006 triumph sprint st and low and behold i saw the brutale in person and its stopped me from buying the sprint in the short term. What to do? Should I buy a brutale...(my riding is backroads and a small amount of highway) That bike is stunning though...im just wondering if its just too specific of a bike...not being comfortable in the seat for a day ride. Any opinions?

My bike is an everyday affair, daily driver. It's comfy. It's not BMW or Goldwing comfy, but for a bike like your uses....it is.

My trek to work consists of about a 10 mile stretch of highway.....it works perfectly. And it carves corners like nothing else.

I have found that the Brutale is a great all around, everyday bike. I'm sure you will have no regrets if you buy it. It is spectacular. I am not blinded by brand loyalty. I have a few bikes. The Brutale is the best...no question about it.

I like long rides and bought the brute and don't have any problems with 600+ days. I've heard big guys aren't comfortable with the narrow seat but it's perfect for me. I don't think it compares to anything, unless you want to get the F4.

If you are touring around a lot, the Sprint ST has to be the better overall package for that job, especially if you are taking a passenger. It's a rather strange comparison Brutale v Sprint ST. I've never owned a Brute so I can't comment with any authority as to it's touring abilities but I would say if shorter journeys on twisties are your bag then go for the Brute but for long distance two up trips, the Sprint ST is the machine to go for.

as john said above....
depends what YOU mean by a "all day ride."

as you can see, i have the BMW K1200GT as well...
so, the brute is the perfect "companion" to that bike in my garage

there really is nothing to compare about the sprint st and the brute
i LOVE my brute
this bike gets in YOUR SOUL
it INVADES your sensorium
but....
it won't replace the sprint st.... with its saddlebags and ability to take you on a "journey."
nor, was it meant to, of course

so......
what drew you to the sprint st in the first place?
THAT is the question to be answered so that you'll know IF the brutale is a good ONLY bike for you

good point Greg - the real question is what type of riding do you primarily do? 1) blasting off for a couple of hours after work or on the weekends (Brutale is supreme) or 2) long weekend trips or touring (Sprint ST would be much better). For me, although I would enjoy touring - I do not have the time. So, until I am older, can work lees, and the kid has flown the nest - I am glad to have a Brutale problem. I have found that many people buy a bike for the type of riding they hope to do (e.g. touring) versus the type they actually will be doing/have time to do (e.g. blasting around as often as possible after work or on the weekend). So, I encourage you to figure out what your primary riding regime will be and buy the bike for that reason - not to mention, if you buy the Brutale it is about, if not, the best looking and most thrilling bike ever made.

oh yea - almost no one will care/notice a nice but fairly generic Sprint ST but about every rider and many a cager go thumbs upon sight of the Brutale rolling along. I had a Ducati rider (mid-range Monster) pull along side yesterday with a big thumbs up and then extended discussion at the next intersection about the Brutale - then I left at a high rate of speed and one wheel on the ground. this happens almost every time I am out on the bike - if this attention and having the coolest bike around matters to you?
