I use my D675 as a daily because it's convenient. My college is in the city and parking is a ***** and I didn't want to buy a school parking permit. With the bike, I can ALWAYS find a spot between cars without a parking meter AND it's under a tunnel, so it's shielded from the elements. Plus you can't beat 40-45 mpg. And morning traffic here can be a real pain and I just zip right through it.

2012 D675 Phantom Black and Gold. British Customs frame sliders, Triumph rear axle sliders, anodized front and rear brake fluid reservoirs, matte black Watsen flush mount blinkers, gold Competition Werkes exhaust w/ LTD fender eliminator kit, Triumph short levers, 3000k HID, amber LED running lights, Zero Gravity Double Bubble, K&N air filter.

hahaha so true!!!

Wish I could drive a nice gas sipper but then I would be having to rent a trailer from UHAUL all the time to take the bike to trackdays and race weekends.

Yeah I drive a Tacoma. It doesn't get great mileage but I don't live far from work either. I can go a couple weeks on a tank of gas.

Living in Scotland, I avoid riding in winter like the plague. Roads are covered in grit and salt to "prevent" cars skidding and acts like grease when it rains. Nevermind the snow, sleet and sheer amount of car-dwelling idiots on the road that do 30mph on a 60mph road that check their mirrors as often as they do their toe nail length. Apart from that, once all the grit and salt is gone and it's above 8C, i'll ride through rain and shine.

I tried daily commuting on a Daytona for a few months. Bought a Street Triple when I found a nice one. Muuuuuch more comfortable!

Do you daily your 675? (actual poll) (not counting winter)

I commute to work each day on my street under the following circumstances.

A) it's over 15 degrees outside.

B) The roads are clear of any H2O below 32 degrees.

C) It's not snowing



Rest of the year, if its raining when I leave, I ride to work. If they are calling for massive T-Storms etc, durning the day. I'll make a judgement call about if it will be cleared up when I leave. Riding in traffic OK. Riding in rain Ok. Riding in traffic and rain.... Mmmm not always a good idea.
