Default 675 enthusiast from Los Angeles

I am Eric, and I want to say these 675 are sweet looking bikes, always been a fan of them. I haven't ridden one myself, but I hope to ride one soon. Look toward to seeing all your guy's bad ass Triple 675s on this forum.

Any of you guys jump ship from a Japanese super sport to Triumph???
I myself ride a current gen R6- my second one. I've owned a 2005 Kawasaki 636, and have seat time on a 2009 R1.

What made you jump from Jap bikes to a Triumph?

I was about to buy a r-6 with cash and no one would talk to me at the dealer I was at. So I went to the triumph dealer and fell in love with the looks having never ridden or even heard one running honestly. I made an impulse buy :) without doing my research and got lucky and man am I glad that I did.

What is it with salesmen not talking to some people? Don't they want to sell?
I just bought a 55" LCD; I went to one Best Buy and nobody approached me at that one. So I went to another Best Buy and I dropped $1500 on a new TV. I completely understand why you didn't buy an R6.

The daytona just a bucket load more character then the run if the mil jap bike, that's why I fell in the live with the daytona over the jap sport bikes.

Good luck with the purchase, I've had nine for a week and have no regrets jumping to triumph.

I want to ride one, compare it to my R6. 675s look so sick. I'd roll the new 2013; it seems most of you 675 owners hate the new look.
I love my R6, but I wouldn't mind testing the waters with a 675.
