as far as owning one...

sucks to commute on. bigger dudes feel like a monkey a football and the radiator blows hot air right up into your helmet. needless to say that gets warm in the summer

long rides at highway speed suck due to vibrations. feels like you've been weedeating for hours after a long ride. numb hands.


that's the bad, the good;

great low end power, great exhaust note, decent fuel mileage, dash layout is wonderful and not every swinging has one

Gets warm, definitely, but under tail exhaust is to blame, mainly.

Rides like a dream. Freeway riding is more pleasurable on the tona, not so much on the streets, especially in Houston.

I do back and forth to htx and atx and its been great.

I've only played with em a few times, and in my experience its basically inferior in every single way to other bikes. But not enough to avoid buying it. Just an average bike with a lot of little flaws.

so what you are saying is that you don't have enough experience to really be chiming in and you should just watch from the side line.

The Daytona isn't the only Triumph model referred to as the 675.

it's a bike just like any other bike. it has good points and it has bad points. to say it is inferior to all is just asinine. all bikes have good points and bad points, that is why there are so many to choose from, you get one that fits your needs/ taste. if there was such thing as a perfect bike, well, there would be no competition now would there?

I swapped with a buddy and rode his 675 for the day. I thought it rode ok. I was decently comfortable on it. Felt torqy for a 600. Other than that i didn't ride it long enough to notcie daily stuff.

It's burnboy's bike, and I already aquired it.

Guess cuz Im constantly working on bikes/cars the little things dont bother me as much as it seems to with other riders.

After reading the reviews online for a couple hours I convinced myself what I had already before when he first offered. LOL.

Thanks for those that offered their real experience
