I have recently been reading these forums and researching the Daytona 675. These forums seem great, and you guys have convinced me I should go for it. Next week or shortly thereafter I will put $2000 down to hold a D675 at the dealership, then at the end of april I will get it picked up, and pay for the rest of it. Unfortunately I am in Canada, so despite our dollar being slightly above the US one I still have to pay a huge surcharge. Oh well.
I started on dirtbikes, a 1973 Honda XL175 to be precise, learned mechanics and riding at the same time. I progressed to a 1999 TTR-250 (street legal) that I loved, and put thousands of miles on in my short time with it. I started riding my dad's Seca II 600 and liked it, though it was wimpy compared to the torque and responsiveness and just not as fun as my dirt bike. I moved away to go to university, and joined the military, so now I have money and time and decided to get something a little peppier. I started looking, and decided I wanted a sport bike, and 600cc class, and the daytona jumped out at me. I called up a dealer near my home in BC and got a quote from him. So this summer, whenever I happen to get time off, I am flying out to BC and grabbing this awesome bike. I will then have about 2 weeks (hopefully more) to ride it around and I will take the MSF and then I will ride it back to school in the fall (Kingston, Ontario)
Well, that got long, but I'm excited, so please forgive me,
