    :) Though I better intruduce myself :!: Sorry that I have jumped on to the forum without doing so :oops: I hope you are all :cool: with it. Any how,I have been riding on the road since I was 16 & other than a 2 year break when I was married to my first wife (when I used to borrow other peoples bikes to get my fix :!: ) I have been riding for 33 years. I won't bore you with my previous, may be some other time :!: :lol: I currently have a 2007 Daytona 675, which is an ex-demo bike from GT Motorcycles in St.Austell, I took her out for a demo ride & loved it so much, I had to buy it. I also have a 2002 Yamaha Fazer 1000. My wife calls them the missus & the mistress. After I got a NIP for doing 86mph in a 60 onthe D675 I kind of agree ( I know it's not very fast, but that's what they caught me at, I have been know to go a lot faster. I've been getting away with it for 24 years, so some might say about time). The mistress will alway get you in trouble & cost you money :!: I will try and get so photos sorted out to but on the gallery over the weekend :p

    Yes, I've had her from new in 2002 & it got 18,000 miles on it. She gets use mainly going around Cornwall, but she's been to Brands a couple of times & Donnington for race meets. I've also done a track day at Castle Coombe on her as well. Also my missus will only ride pillion on her, hence the seat cowl on the D675. I know I'm spoilt, but it depends on my mood, the weather(the Fazer has heated grips on it,toasty fingers,mmmmmm...)ect.I'm looking forward to some nicer weather so I get on a track day and taking the D675, last one was on a TT600 I previously owned( I have some pic's if any one interested). As for the cleanliness of my bikes, I get almost as enjoyment riding them, if only for the comments you get when you pull up some where!
