Well, my name's Noam (aka Sarchi on the mc boards). I'm 40 and live in Hamilton (er.. that's Canada.. not Bermuda, darn), with my wife and two of my three kids. I started riding two years ago on an '86 Ninja 1000R, I sold it this year and bought a new FZ6. I've put 22,000 kms on the two bikes - no problems so far, knock on wood.

Well - had I known the 675 was coming out, I might have waited on a new bike....... but, to be honest, a bike with more relaxed ergos suits me well, and I love the FZ. So I'm gonna bide my time and also hope Triumph will bring out a baby Speed Trip, or Tiger, or ST... based on the 675. Obviously I love the Daytona but I'm not sure it'd make a good "only bike" for me. Besides that, my SO doesn't wanna hear about new bikes for awhile!

So why did I start this site? Good question.. I don't really know! It was just an impulse really. I do think the 675 will be "all the rage" in the next couple years and I guess I thought it'd be fun to start a web site for it.

Happy and safe riding to everyone--

Hi I'm Geoff, a french guy living in Hong Kong. I own a Daytona 675 black 08 for almost two years, and it's probably the only one circulating in here. It's my first bike and I already did a low side 6 months ago. I was engaging a fly-over but behind the traffic was stuck. I did really wrong by using my rear brake to stop, so I locked my rear wheel and slide from side to side. Trying to avoid hiting the last car, I focused on the side of the road, where I finally crashed. Got a big laceration on my left knee, but nothing broken luckily. The bike was all scratched on the lh side. Now I got back confidence, learnt a lot from this accident. Yesterday I just noticed the steering limiter has gone, months after my crash, and left a huge hole in the frame. That's why I decided to join this forum, to try to find solutions to this problem. Feeling really bad about it. Hopefully I'll find other interesting info about this great bike, and help others if I can.... Cheers peeps.
