If you're not dead set on the Daytona, give the Street Triple a try. More comfortable ergos, very similar motor, more fun on the street.

I've had mine for a little over a year and great for street and track. Im a taller guy so the seat doesnt hurt, but my shorter friends have complained about it. I love it and wouldnt buy another bike when the time comes. It rips on the track and TomLSTD was wrong in saying it needs help out of the corners. You can rip coming out of the corners and make up alot of time on the guy in front of you.

The only draw back is that parts are not readily available for a quick fix and they can be expensive as well. Race plastics cost at least $650 a set as opposed to $350 for my buddies GSXR 750.

I love mine!! I commute to med center on mine too from Alvin. I plan on getting it to its first track day next month. I would also like to get an after market seat I do get a bit of pain in a bad spot every now and then (short problem). Fixable though.

I'm not the most seasoned rider and it has done me well

Dont be harsh on him Tom. They don't understand how V-twins or 750's are really so much better


Runs and hides quick
