    Hi there folks, brand new to this forum lark so here goes.

    I've just purchashed myself an 08 675 which the dealer tells me is a limited edition. Been trying to find out if there are any markings/plates to say what number of how many, if that is what im thinking he meant!!!

    Thanks for any help/advice given.

    Welcome xjm!

    Is it a graphite Masterbike? If so you'll have one of 100. However you'll have to give us a few more clues, a pic would help.

    Whatever it is, you are so going to enjoy it :cool: Congratulations on your purchase, and welcome to our exclusive club :D
     
  3. welcome dude, is it a black and gold or a graphite...black and gold is the SE , graphite could be a masterbike which will have a number associated with it and i think should have some sort of certificate...if its an SE then then there are thousands more like it about, same as the masterbike......oooohhhh....im in trouble now :lol:
    whatever it is...GOOD CHOICE MATE

    Sorry my fault, its an SE not LE. Its black with gold rims etc.

    Thanks for the welcomes, most appreciated. Cant get the pic i have onto my avatar for my profile so will have to put it onto the gallery.

    I've had a look at other forums and they are a very devided as to wheather the 675 is a good first bike. i've had a handfull of bikes (600's) out over the last few weeks and couldnt get the smile off my face (struggled to get my lid off afterwards!!! ha ha) when i came back with the 675. What are the thoughts from people on here?

    I just couldnt get my head round the torque as soon as you open the throttle, its unbelievable. I much preferred having that as to wringing the neck off other bikes to get the potential out of them.

    Hope i've made a decent choice.......

    That is one of the main reasons i got the 675 mate. Its a lot less work than a inline four, just take it easy and gradualy get used to it but do not get over confident, then when you are comfordable with the bike wait untill you get it on the right road and to 10,000rpm and keep it on the boil .It will make your eyes pop, The handling, power and that awsom noise, Enjoy

    Cheers Henrymc.

    When i had her out for a test drive the other day i was on a good open road and had a wee duel with an Audi TT, the noise was just surreal and the punch was there to back it up.

    Smitten!!!

    Firing on all 3 cylinders!! ha ha

    I see by your map pin xjm you are from way way up north.
    There are some great roads up your way. I have drove up the a9/a99 from Inverness to John o'Groats in the car I rekon it would be a blast on the 675.
    I know the West cost from Glasgow up to Oban and then down to Campletown all good stuff also.
    Not much traffic :up:

    Great choice xjm, the best, "Black & gold" for the 675, apart from the Graphite, red blue, white, black,green? or and pink, that covers all the backlash, welcome to the forum, we also have an old git section on here, honorary members include myself Henry,and of course D41 but don't let him kid you its his age, post a plenty say what you think and enjoy, don't read the Observer newspaper it will corrupt you into a trendy lefty and I shall be forced into calling you Henry. :lol:

    Yes but conditions apply?
    1) Must have a sense of humor
    2) Have a diverse topic choice
    3) And remember not everything comes in 3's
    4) Proof of old git age, picture of you holding your grandkids will suffice
    5) And finally anything Henry and D41 say fooking well believe it

    Not sure i can meet all the requirements to join the old gits after all !!
    sense of humour, no problem
    Not sure about the diverse topic choice
    I know not everything comes in threes
    Got no grandkids i hope, i started late & my daughter is only 12!!
    As for believing every thing written by Henry & D41 ????????

    I shall keep my political views close to my chest Henry, but then again you'll probably know which way the axe falls with me :?:

    Rowly speaks the truth, Dave - Henry & I are both pretty much infallible.


    ....Well, fairly infallible!




    ....Well, sort-of-right, part of the time!




    .... Well, come to think of it - I think the phrase "pushing the envelope of mediocrity" is more suitable.

    Hey hey hey, settle down guys i only wanted to say hello not start any barneys!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


    Anyhoo, back to the topic of the mighty 675 ( look at me i've only owned one for a day and its still at the dealers!!!!) is there any pointers that i should know of whilst straddling my bikeeee? It being second hand and all, it has a few mods which i'm not aquainted with yet, apart from the, ahem, "illegal" can....... mmmmmm, nice......

    Think i should take a moment here to point out that i'm relativley new to the road bike scene, just sat my test this year. Ive been known in the past to dabble with quads, trikes and "a", "1", "UNO", scrambler and that wasnt too pretty if i do say so myself!!! :eek: :eek:

    Just wandered if i could get some, "Experianced" knowledge as what to look out for..... any pointers would be most appreciated!!

    Re. the 'Old Gits Section'.

    I shall of course dispense with the more mundane membership requirements, at my age I should be made an immediate honorary member!

    Just call me 'Heinz' this year. :(
