It just sits in my living room. I want something I can tour on. Looking into the ninja 1000 or the z1000. I definately wanted it to stay in the family. Cali deserves something cool. So I'm makin him a sweet deal. Dallas dosent have any roads to ride so I don't get to ride much. If I get something bigger and more comfortable for distance I can travel. I'm ready to see the grand canyon or something

You'll love the daytona. I've put 24K on mine the first year. Watch you're electrical system, don't touch the killswitch lol. The exup valve on mine is touchy too. I lost a header tube around 15k, but Triumph assured me that's a first as far as they know lol.

I've always heard to leave the kill switch alone, subsequently, I never used it. I'm just curious, why though?

the Kill switch / ECU issue was fixed in 07 and was not attributed to many fries from what i know.

if the kill switch stops working in the off position then people couldnt turn the bike on, thats a more common problem than it vaporizing your ecu into fairy dust.

I haven't had any problems with my 09 and its been down 3 times.
