    Hello Guys

    Just thought I'd introduce myself. No stranger to Triumphs. I've had 2 Sprint RS's, lately a Daytona 600, and from this Saturday coming, a Grey 07 plate 675. I am from Plymouth - any members nearby?

    Anyway, off to Donington (full circuit) on May 27th with the guys off www.daytona600.org

    They are a bit pissed that I have let the gorgeous D6 go for the 675.

    I had ridden the 675 before and convinced myself that it was too focussed and too narrow, but the the engine is so intoxicating. A test ride friday convinced me that I wanted to trade and Saturday I did the deal. Graphite grey 07 plate with £500 of accessories fitted. Happy days.

    You didn't have an SV did you? Would be too big a coincidence, must be lots of Kevs in Plymouth.

    No longer in God's own country, I used to live in Saltash. We'll be back one day.

    Welcome to the board!

    Well isn't it a small world. Yes I have had an SV650s. Well 2 actually, one blue 2000 and a yellow 2002. But given that the 675 will be the 14th bike in 8 years, I've pretty much tried them all.

    Really nice blokes on the D600 site and I intend to flit backward and forwards between the two.

    It would be really good to meet up with some 675s locally and go for a ride.

    Cheers

    Kev

    Helloooo

    I used to use the d600 site a few years ago and I rode a lot with Graycat and sold Spudda a Quill can. I swapped a TT600 for a D600 but I didn't keep it long and I hated it. Turns out the front wheel was duff and it would corner but too late as the 675 was on order.

  15. Admiral Nelson!

    Seen you on daytona600.org, i'm the same as you just moved up from a silver 600 to a graphite 675 so could keep the same colour leathers.

    I picked up the D6 in January and its essentially a new bike - 2004 plate but had 2600 miles on the clock :eek:

    It is a great bike but not as focussed as the 675, which I have been smitted by from the first time I rode one whist my Sprint RS was having work done.

    The 675 is 07 Plate with 2200 miles on the clock. Extras - seat cowl, carbon tank protector, carbon hugger, carbon heat sheild, carbon end cap on exhaust, swing arm cotton reels - £5699. £3000 trade in on the D600 :D
     
  20. if im not mistaken youve a double bubble on there aswell...thatll save you a few quid. :) know what you mean about being smitten with the 675, bought my first without even test riding it...the look of it was enough ..
