    Hi all,
    Just found the site. After thinking about a 675 for a few years, the improvements they made plus the sexy white special edition finally tipped me over the edge.
    Being a bit old and lanky its a tad uncomfy for road riding and it is mainly for the track.
    I plan to strip it down and turn it into a full-on track bike - probably next year - sooner if I bin it!
    I've turned into an accidental British bike enthusiast as my everyday bike is a CCM 440 dual sport.
    Both bought because they were brilliant bikes but it does give me a buzz to think they were made here.
    I live in Chorlton, Manchester.
    Cheers Richard

    THanks and sorry about unimaginative pic - will try and think of something that might give people a tickle and change it.

    Welcome mate, like the name and here in Sweden the Rich Tea is called ‘Finger Marie’
    When you turn your bike into a track toy, are you going to farm out all the parts as there’s a demand for them?
    I like the idea of a track only bike as it removes the worry of keeping it road legal but I don’t have enough pennies at the mo…
    Makes me smile every time

    I don't want to get all pedantic but Rich Teas are round - I am one and I am round so I should know.
    Re the track bike bit - it makes me cringe to say this but I am running it in road trim until I crash it (once a year so far). I figure it will cost me a fair bit and am just putting it off really. Given the weather forecast for tomorrow and the fact that there was only fast group places available tomorrow at Oulton, a track I haven't learned properly yet, the project could be starting sooner rather than later.

    They smell so sweet but taste a bit rubbish and very unreliable dunkers.
    And like me completely out of fashion.
    The younger generation have been too easily swayed by the instant gratification of chocolatiness or crunchiness.
