Made a call to the local triumph dealer today and was told that after the first shipment of Daytonas that they won't get anymore until August/September. As I get my full license in July I decided to get one from the first shipment arriving at the end of this month. Wrestled with the 675 vs 675R decision for an hour or so and decided to go with the stock 675. Purely because I like black more than red and white. I know that sounds stupid as there are so many goodies at just $2500 extra, especially the ABS and Ohlins. I guess I've come to the conclusion that I'm no Casey Stoner and I don't really need all the bells and whistles, so I whacked a deposit down on the Phantom Black 675. I'm optioning the quickshifter, frame sliders, anodised brake fluid reservoirs and LED indicators. Should take delivery on the 26th. Then I just have to look at it for 2 months. Made easier by the fact I'll be interstate may through June! I'll be sure to post pics in a few weeks!
