    Hello folks, hope this is the right protocol for introducing myself. My name is Guy and I'm soon, oh so very soooooon going to become a 675 rider. C.a.n.n.o.t W.a.i.t. I'm in the fortunate position of running the bike as part of the MCN test fleet and I'm picking it up on the 31st. If you could make room for me on here I'd be very grateful. Cracking looking forum.

    Cheers,

    Guy

    Now then

    What's your current ride from the test fleet. By your excitement over the 675 I'm guessing it's a BMW or similar :D.

    Will you be writing a report on it for MCN? I gave an interview to MCN when the 675 first came out but I can't remember who to. http://www.stukennedy.co.uk/mcn.htm

    Enjoy your new ride.

    Hi Stu, you're the gaffer round here, aren't you? I'm new on MCN (was on Ride many moons ago) so I'm coming to the 675 fresh from... nothing! Last bike I had was a CBR600FN... a few years ago now. 675 is going to feel like a rocketship! Reports galore in MCN I hope.

    Hello, and welcome. Always room for new members on here! When do you pick up the 675? any details on the ordered spec? :) Sounds like an interesting situation you've got with MCN; I'll look forward to reading reports in the near future for sure! Hope you find it useful here and any suggestions or comments are always welcome :D
