Yesterday, I traded in the 07 Fireblade for a 2011 Daytona 675. Here tis, first run in the twisties to the tyres scrubbed in out around the edges. It's not that I no longer enjoy what a powerhouse Thou can do...In fact my Blade never let me down, and I've gulped down the addictive drug of outrageous accelleration and performance for a looooong time now. But the simple fact is....I want to move on to a different style of riding...instead of brutal force, I'm settling for svelt power, riding the cresendo of sound that only a triple can provide. The 675 was impassable...so I trading in the Blade for this swift, effortless, and intoxicating daytona 675....and I'm a happy little vegemite Now for around a year of learning and converting my skillset to this different kind of animal that requires a different kind of approach to riding overall. John..
