    Hey Guys

    I said it before - I love the 675 on the track. On the road it is a pain at slow speeds. I ride it and hunt down the next car/bike to pass and end up rushing everywhere from A to B. I have been thinking of selling for a while and am moving away from Sports bikes.

    I still have the following for sale:

    Gel low seat

    I am putting the Triumph Carbon hugger back on so the black Skidmarx is up for grabs.

    Carbon end cap for the standard exhaust.

    Triumph off road can - like new

    In fact all bits are like new.

    I am off to pastures new and will probable not ride with any of you again.

    Nice to have known you. PM me for details of shiny bits. :D

    Hi Admiral, you can corner like that! and you are buying a bike that can't go around corners?
    are you sure you have thought this through proper?
    no offence intended,
    why not a street trip,
    same engine and chassie as a 675 but not so focused,

    I have had naked bikes before and ride them the same - too quick. I quickly get pissed off due to lack of a fairing. A complete change was required hence the cruiser. Besides which, my 9 lives would run out sooner than later. I've done 4 trackdays this year - more than some do in a lifetime. I may do some again in either a hired bike or but a cheaper track hack next year :D
