Which one?

I've been thinking on which bike to hopefully get, for now I'll focus on the 600cc's, as literbikes don't float my boat.

yamaha=too track oriented...don't like the styling too much
Honda=fugly
Suzuki=everyone and their mom has one
so that leaves.....

triumph daytona, looks the business and got great reviews. plus, is a triple
Triumph 2006 Daytona 675
kawai 636, looks like secks, and I really like monochromatic bikes, specially in orange
08ZX600P8F Lime B

everyone has a suzuki because they are awesome.

get the triumph. my buddy has one. its sick. i can tell you for a fact that it straight smokes my suzuki through the lower revs. but i have a more powerful top end. also he gets mad compliments on it everywhere we go because few people have them. truth be told i wish i would have thought to look at triumph when i went to get a bike. but dont get me wrong i LOVE my suzuki.

yeah its a little tough, but thats what patrick is for. My 955 has almost 30k and i have not had one problem. The only thing i have had to replace was the speedo sensor and thats only because the numb nuts that put my wheel on after getting a new tire put it on wrong. Brittish USA is helpful for parts and such.

I think the Daytona is actually a better bike, but like mentioned above, I haven't heard anything good about the service, and that bike has got to be the most uncomfortable thing I have ever sat on. The seat is hard and contoured funny, something about the bars just felt akward, and something kept stabbing my legs.

BTW, they're redesigning the ZX-6R for 09. I also have a friend looking to sell his 07 ZX-6R. Looks just like that one BOTM with the Monster graphics.

Kyle is selling already...again...

My 2cents is that the 675 is hot...I would rock one and I own a Kawi. But I have to admit it seems like mine is more comfortable for me.
