New Triumph 675

Well, I havn't posted in a while, mostly because I sold my M750 and got a Daytona 675.

It's awesome, buy I definitely miss the ducati rumble. I'm secretly wondering if I'll want to trade for an s4r at some point. But the daytona is an amazing bike (only 360 pounds!), and I'm totally satisfied. anyways, hope everyone is well, cheers! -drumonster

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

Re: New Triumph 675

Daytona is a "sexy as hell" bike. I covet them too (although mine will be charcoal grey), as well as the street trip' (in white). Nice ride.   

One of the many good things about motorcycles is you don't have to pick one to ride for the rest of your life. What's that they say about variety being spicy?

Nice bike, the 675 is an awesome machine

I went the other way....... used to have a Graphite 675, now have a titanium S4R.

Congratulations. you'll love 675.net.

Nothing wrong with the D675, very nimble, fast and agile. Maintenance cost (i logged in almost 7k miles in 6 mos) and mods (price wise and availability) are pretty close with the Japanese counterparts. I had a bad car accident 4 years ago (t-boned by a gas guzzler, lane hogging Escalade) and the outcome was a slight neck problem. 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
