Re: New Triumph 675

Just make sure u check the oil level at least once a week but better before every run.the 675 & 1050 triples burn oil and it is common for them to run low on oil and blow the crank.other than that they are fantastic machines and i love them.

Re: New Triumph 675

Dyami, That is one cool ride. The bike is great and it is kind of like your buying into one of the proudest names in the history of motorcycles. Triumph is keeping the British motorcycle alive.

&quot;I bit my tongue and stood in line. I bought into what I was sold and ended up with nothing.&nbsp; You thought I was a little mouse.&nbsp; You thought you&#039;d take me by surprise but now I&#039;m here... burning down your house.&nbsp; This is not my idea of a good time.&quot;<br /><br />Garbage

Re: New Triumph 675

awesome replies everyone, thanks!!!!! AK, yes, i love it... of course I'm already planning a bunch of mods, heh...

675.net is a great site, but doesn't compare with the DML in my opinion. I'll still be active here cause ya'll are the best :P

Thanks for everything, dyami

Drummer who rides, or rider who drums?... hmmm...

Im on 675.net as well (I own an 06 Graphite) and you're right.

This place crushes that place

That being said, the D675's agressive riding position became evident in long rides (2+ hrs) and my neck wasnt to happy. Its a fun machine but since my riding consists of 70% commuting and 30% leisure, it was a no brainer that the monster suits me perfectly.

As i previously stated, I wished that I could have kept both. Cant go wrong with the D675 but I love Max and wouldnt give him up



For not disimilar reasons to Asado... I still love the 675, my mate has one and I miss it. Like wise Asado, wish I could have both.

I sent mine sideways down a bit of black top that resulted in a write off. When i was looking for a new bike, i wanted something more upright. As awesome as the seating position is when your going hell for leather, for general commuting is was a bit of a pain.

The decision in getting the Duc was that i didn't want anyting Japanese, my mates had a speed triple and super duke, which really leaves the Monster, Hypermotard and Tuono.

needless to say the monster won.

Re: New Triumph 675

If I didn't own a Duc, Triumph is second on the list.

Here is a pic of Dayton 675 SE with 11 miles on it. My buddy just bought it and asked me to store it my garage.

I had the honor of driving it home for him, since he was indisposed at the time.

Oh! Temptation is thy Evil Name. I kept it under 6000 RPm to honor his break in period. It was soooooo damn hard!!

It is a sweet, wicked machine.

I'm looking forward to riding with my bud once he's ready (and getting this damn tempter out of my garage!).

As far as i'm concerned, Triumph's got cred!

Re: New Triumph 675

I would be flogging that thing every chance I got.


People who know me would know better than to leave such a machine in my posession.

I&#039;ve come a long way and now I&#039;m me,<br />The darkest river that meets the sea...
