Actually I thought the Tiger is sort of the answer to the question that nobody is asking, not particularly good at anything. But I like the stripes.

Had my Tiger for 5 days and 600 miles. Not perfect, but a great bike. I"m very pleased, thus far.

That's great - now if they could clean the toilets and mop the kitchen floor, we'd be in bidness......



I wonder if they used "O'Cedar" or "Good Housekeeping" brand broom?

Slow down a bit, you don't want to break the resident IB master's 50 mile loop record.

And what gauge is the stick?

Fair comparisons surely. As far as it gets when overwhelmingly European crowd measures European bikes against others. Wonder how the results would have been had 75% of the judges been Japanese.

The D&D 675 that raced in the Daytona 200 was damn near stock, and placed 23rd. The only mods were the Arrow pipe, K&N filter, racing tires, GMD Computrack tuned front end, and different gearing.



I asked about the famous Honda fuel boo-boo, and, how did they know when to refuel the 675? The answer? "Two laps after the low fuel light came on!"



Obviously a great bike!

Default Triumph Daytona 675 = excellent design

Because the Daytona isn't lighter, thinner, with more down low torque and better looks. If anything, worldwide motorcycle press worships the Japanese. I can't think of one European bike in the past 10 years that could sincerely challenge the Japanese industry, with the exceptions of a 916 series bike or one of the fancy Aprilias with factory supercool suspension.



Give credit where it is due, the Daytona is an amazing piece of engineering that put Triumph at the head of the pack in the 600 class. You can't possibly argue against that statement, even if you believe that it doesn't deserve Masterbike (which is really an excuse to ride all these bikes on a free trip to Spain).
