    I was riding along the other day...the sun was shining and the world and his wife were out on their bikes cruising around....and I had a sudden thought......

    Now I am sure that some of you must of had this same thought....

    I was not envious of any of them! :cool:

    My previous bike was a Honda CBR600....and I used to ride along and I loved it (it was my first bike....the break up was messy!), but I used to see new Honda's/Kawasaki's/Yamaha's and most importantly Triumph's going past and think to myself....."I wish I had one of those!"

    But I can safely say that now I have my D675 in Tornado Red....I couldn't give a jot what others are riding, as I genuinely think I have the most spectacular bike out of all of them (I might make an excpeption for the Y2K Jet Bike!!)

    Just a random thought i had that might have been worth sharing!

    Im with you 100% :D
    Ive been fortunate enough to be able to afford 2 brand new 675's in the last 2 years and prior to buying the second one, I had a good think about alternatives, even tried a few, but nothing swayed me. For me its the complete package. Brilliant performance, stunning looks, a bit different to everything else and most importantly it makes me grin whenever i put my leg over it and fire it up :)

    I do think it's in bikers nature to always be looking at other bikes though, probably because we spend so much time at meets and such things where there is such a variety always on show. Sometimes I think I would like another bike, but it would be as well as the 675, not as areplacement :!:

    A very deep and meaningful thought you had there Sparky and oh so right :D
     
  4. I've never had that thought but now you've had it for me, I agree. I'd have another bike just for crusing round with the missus but it would never be a replacement.

    I don't give a monkey's either :D Very happy with the bike, don't want anything else. I like that it's British :D
     
  6. I always said to myself that I wouldn't buy a new bike/car because its stupid. ''you loose £1500 as soon as you ride it out of the showroom''. but when I got my 'new' (08) bike I felt, and still feel completly different. ITS THE BEST THING I EVER BOUGHT! who cares, and it really does turn heads. every man and his dog has a jap bike but who's been man enough to go brittish eh!

    Go on Triumph!

    Longest I've ever kept a bike was 18months and that was a TT600. I've had a 675 now for over 3 years so I guess I'm happy with my lot. Money no object I'd have a matt black MV Agusta F4 and that new Duke but I can't remember the number :D
     
  9. I like the 1198 Ducati but was only thinking about this last night on a ride......

    I wanted a bike around the 600cc mark and I have the very best of all of them, so therefore, even including Ducatis, MVs, KTMs, etc, I actually have the best supersports bike in the world.

    And it's the best colour RED!!!!!!!!!! ;)

    TRIUMPH Born And Bread In Britan. I reckon they should do one in the speed triple white. I do like the black alot but graphite well just shows off the lines and the lovly carbon lol
     
  16. am i the only one who doesnt like carbon then, and i agree with graham about the white, still not as nice as black, though :lol:
     
  17. perhaps we should ask craig to start up a poll on peoples fave colour, like the exhaust one he did....that way we can prove that black is the best colour (mind you, i do like he sound of neon blue\) :lol: :lol: :lol: , what do you think craig
