Hello,

I hope to learn a lot! I'm new to sport bikes but kind of fell in love with this bike at first glance.

I been on dirtbikes all my life. After college I bought my first street bike; but then shortly after, my dad bought a faster bike which made me reconsider what kind of bike I really wanted... a few you tube videos later I started looking at Triumph's 675street triples... then walked into a dealership, only to FIND the bike I proudly own now. #381 Daytona 765 (USA)

I look forward to putting plenty of miles on her. just finished the break-in and climbing fast! Glad to have been invited to this forum and meet some like minded people! CHEERS!

Enjoy! I just finished up my break-in 1,000 today. That first run up to 12k or so was absolutely amazing.

i still instantly up shift or back off at 9-10K. Im not worthy of 12K yet  :020: lol. At least not here, in Chicago. Need to find some better pavement for the 12K pulls.

You mean you don't hoon on I-355 like all the other sportbike riders? I'm coming from an air cooled Ducati so my ear's calibrated to shift at around 8,500. The pull on the Daytona seems endless.
