Well for £20 more a month i can have a special edition Daytona . :D VERY TEMPTED . Sprint ok but BORING , i had more fun painting my shed . Also phoned about R6 but lacking bottom end and £8300 , . taking a loss on 1050 but what the hell !!

  3. Tell me about it - I've been searching for the Holy Grail - 14 bikes in 8 years. This is the best one I've had though.

    14 bikes in 8 years!!! BH!!! Keeping a dealer in business, are you Admiral? :D
     
  5. I intend to keep this until I can justify the insurance on a thou ducati (or even a thou Daytona if they are doing one by then).

    One years NCB costs!!!

    I'll second that opinion Burt, kept the Sprint 6 weeks and 3500 miles GONE! Mirrors cr*p, vibration ***y awfull......

    New Toy, AMAZING......................... for the distances I'm doing anyway.

    The daytona win's for everything else.

    By the way Hi Folk's................................ I'm alive :cool:

    Burt, you`ve done the right thing enjoy then new bike when you get it. I`ve had 24 bikes in 36 years and the 675 must rank as the best one i`ve owned. Like you I tested a Sprint 1050 and Speed Triple before buying a second hand 675 and have never looked back. I was concerned about the possible lack of torque having been on 955i Daytona`s for the prevous five years but the 675 has so may better features I dont miss the bigger engine at all.!!!
