Re: New Triumph 675

I might have to powder coat my wheels when I do my rear-set and pass. pegs black. Probably going to paint the bike black too... the yellow is a bit bling for me

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!

I love that color (colour) scheme. Reminds me of the JPS colors.
Verrr nice that you get to store it in your garage.

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.

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.

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

This place crushes that place
