Default Talk me out of selling/trading my Daytona 675 because...

...I want a Bonneville, T100, Scrambler or Thruxton.

9 months into owning it, I already want something different.

This. So many cool bikes out there. Every time I think about snagging a new car I think about all the cool bikes out there... just get another bike. Do it.

Wouldn't a Thruxton be kind of the same in this regard?

you can get a regular bonneville with thruxton parts addon. looks like a thrux but sits like a bonnie.

Personally i have problems on longer rides because of a couple spinal fractures but i refuse to give up daytona

The Bonnie is a nice change of pace for a week-end ride…..but they are heavier, not really the best handling or power after coming from a 675.

Mine has $8k worth of upgrades with a 904cc kit, carbs, ignition, clutch, suspension, brakes, gearing, tire, rear sets, etc. and now it is fun to ride in the twisties.

I think that you will miss the Daytona....that said....it's yours for $8400
