I have purchased my first bike that is not from Japan. I was actually looking for a VFR800 when I saw this, so I did some reading of online reviews and thought it looked okay. One review said that they can be a bit cramped for tall blokes, so being 6'2" is was concerned. Then bugger me - I am walking home and I see one outside the cafe near my place. So I saunter over and ask the helpful owner about the bike as I was looking at buying one. He offered me a sit on the bike and I fitted quite nicely. So I bought it - a 2001 Triumph TT600. 45,000 and a bit kilometers on it, a minor tank scratch and a minor fairing scratch, otherwise in mint condition. The bike has been fitted with a Scorpion muffler, and it did have a few advertising stickers on it, so I cleaned them off. Those who know me let me reiterate.. "I AM NOT MODIFYING THIS BIKE IN ANY WAY" No - it will not become a TT bobber, or a 600 rat bike, or even a street fighter - this will remain a dead stock TT600. I have found it a bit twitchy in traffic, the throttle seems to only work at full twist and the bike coughs and hops at low revs, so I took it into Peter Stephen's this morning for a map check. They uploaded the latest tune and now the bike behaves like a proper English gentleman, with good even pull through the throttle, smooth riding at low revs and even a sweeter deeper exhaust note. The first real test of this bike will be a three day ride in February - can't wait.
