Granted, the day is young, but this is the smartest thing I've heard all day.

Please tell me that the romantic all-male night in a seedy hotel wasn't what spurred the offer of your bike.

Default Why not 600, 800, 1000?

Hey 600s are here to stay. MotoGP is moving towards 800. VFR is 800. AMA could have only 3 classes 600, 800, 1000. Suzuki could use their 750 to compete in the 800 class...500 is too small..

It's not just true in Brit SS, it's (more importantly) also true for the majority of club racing organizations.



Since we write for track day riders or club racers, and not for AMA/World Pros; the majority of the germane rulebooks state 675 triples are legal for their "middleweight" classes, while the GSX-R 750 most certainly is not.

How can you blame Kawi or Triumph when they are giving you more performance for an equal (or lesser) price? The only place the 600cc thing counts is on the racetrack. On the street, the more for us, the better. Rev it & ride!.....the gospel according to a treacherous old fart. Cheers, Jack

<blockquote>The fact that the 675 is not being allowed in WSS and AMA SS & FX is more likely due to politics and the fact that Triumph will not be supporting a factory race team.</blockquote>

Well, I don't know if it is politics that they aren't being allowed in or not, but it is important to point out that, as I understand it, the AMA and WSS rules didn't allow 675 triples way before Triumph built one. It's not like Triumph announced they were going to build the motorcycle and then the racing organizations changed the rules to not let it in.





Triumph knew the rules when they built the bike and they knew that if they wanted it eligible they would have to get those rules changed. Whether those rules should be changed is a matter I can't comment on, but it is noteworthy that Triumph built a bike that couldn't compete in these series without a rules change.

Ole Holter, your letting Sean ride your precious 675? Now, now, I call for some sensibility. You shouldn't let a ham fisted drag racer thrash that poor baby. I think you should let me ride it instead. Infact you would get a brand new toaster, a miniature 1:14 scale model of a Ducati 999 and my insurance bill for the rest of your life. Now honestly, which offer sounds better?



Alright you be that way Ole and Sean stop laughing at my ridiculously slow lap times.



Just Kidding Sean and Ole... But if you do happen to need a (I never lean the bike over) test rider I am always avialable.

Right. That's what I was alluding to by mentioning the lesser pro series. I didn't mention club racing, but you're correct in pointing out that the fact that it's allowed there is probably more important to the average guy who buys one.
