Hello, Just Purchased My First Triumph!

Hey everyone,
My name is Will Coats. My involvement with motorcycles started 9 years ago when I purchased an 04 Honda CBR600RR when I was a sophomore in college, two years later I did my first track day then started to ride more and more on the track and less and less on the street. I got into Suzuki SV650's and have been riding and racing SV650's for the last 6 years. I decided to take a break from racing starting next year and to just do track days and give a different bike a try. I've always through a Daytona 675 would be a fun bike with an easier to use power band than a 600 inline 4 so I decided to go that route for my next bike. I just purchased a 2014 675R already set up as a track bike that I'm going to pick up and ride for the first time next weekend at Road Atlanta.



Here's a link to the bike I just purchased:

I'll post up some pictures and info after this coming weekend. I'm excited to give it a try!


The one I'm buying already has adjustable triple clamps to fix the geometry/lack of trail issue. Are there any other quirks or things I should know about for having a Daytona 675 track bike?

It was a blast to ride at Road Atlanta last weekend! This thing is fast! I need to get some more seat time on it to get more acclimated and ride it better but very happy my first weekend riding it.
