    Hi Gents,

    Just purchased my first 2012 Daytona 675R today. Not got it home yet but hopefully later this week.

    Really looking forward to getting out on it and joining the 675 community.

    Hi all thanks for the messages. Will get some pictures on here as soon as it arrives.

    This is my first road bike despite having my license for some years and have had trials bikes since I was a kid. I’m based near Tamworth and looking for any tips, tricks and pearls of wisdom and hopefully any riding buddies near me.

    Is there a knack with the steering lock? It won’t release the key when trying to put the lock on and I can’t get it into P??

    Very nice, certainly a clean example!

    Guessing it's pretty low mileage?

    Amazing it’s got that many.
    Only advice with the lock is give it a wiggle.
    The steering lock actually can be counter productive. If it’s on it’s very easy to break it with force, then you can start the engine with a screwdriver as there’s no immobiliser before 2013.
    Sorry to be negative on your new bike day!

    GazP, alarms are ok but if you want brilliant, reliable and easy to use security then go with a tracker. They are the same to purchase the unit and although they required a yearly sub. You more than likely save that money insurance if your lucky like me. Also no fumbling around with an alarm thob and trying to find it wen you pull over to get fuel etc. The one I have is also gracious enough to txt me when my bikes battery gets low so I know wen to plug it in. Let me tell you also that the drain on ur bikes battery is so much better. Over winter with an alarm if I don’t use it for a couple of weeks then my battery will be dead but it’s months with the tracker I have and alarms have killed so many of my batteries. Just my two cents mate
