    Morning, all!

    Just thought I'd pop in, say hi, have a look around and buy a virtual round of virtual drinks at the virtual bar.

    I think I recognise some of you boys n girls from the D600.org site and before but for those who don't know me .... I'm based down in Londinium after moving from Leeds. Have had a D600 for the last four or five years and rocked up a few miles and a couple of trackdays. However the time has come to trade her in for a 675 so after a test ride at the weekend I've ordered a sexy new black one which will be later in in the month.

    I'm sure I'll be on here quite a bit trying to workout what does what on the bike and picking the brains of you gurus for information :)

    Hello and welcome! Hope you'll find it useful here, lots of knowledgeable chaps / chapesses here. Gone for the box standard 675 09? or got any additional extras? :)

    Hey, Criag

    Yep, she's pretty much bog standard at the moment with just an alarm being added next week before pick-up. I've started looking at crash bobins and engine armour first but I'm sure a new end can etc won't be too far behind - just to make it run better of course ;) lol
     
  4. Welcome :)

    Quickshifter is the way to go

    Well bugger me Tim, it's about time you got rid of that rust bucket and got a proper bike. No falling off this one though. I see you've gone for the fastest colour :D

    Oh my god, I thought we had got rid of you ;) . Only joking Tim, good to see you fella, what have you been up to other than buying yourself a decent new bike. Pity it's a wrong colour :D

  15. All my fault I'm afraid. I think Tim spend all day gazing at mine during our Donington Trackday :D

    I know you won't be disapointed dude. Looking forward to Mallory 01Aug.

    oh you guys are such kidders! Everyone knows that you should always be on black :ugeek:
    Nice to know the "colour wars" are still alive and kicking on here too :)

    Oh yes, I'm now officially stalking Stu and Thaibite. Again. ;) Well, from London at least.

    Kev - I do blame you. It was going to be Stu's fault as I liked them back when he got his first but managed to ignore it. Then Donington Park happened and it just looked so good going round the track that I had to have one. Sorry, nothing to do with you being on it ;) lol

    Stu - Yep, 09 model brand new and just for me! :twisted:
     
  17. Look at the 2nd pic - Graycats checking me out :D

    That was the moment he decided he wanted a 675 and decided not to do pillion laps of Donington with his Silver Daytona600 with grabrail :D :D !

    You were always a bit slow but it's nice to see you've caught us up. Try and keep this one the right way up. :lol:

    When do you pick it up :wave:

    Oh come on - be fair. The grab rail makes it soooo much easier to pick up when he drops it.
    :scarper:

























    Sorry Tim I couldn't resist that cheap shot
