Was that your first 675 test ride?  Glad to hear you liked it.  I was just checking out the new ones at the bike show yesterday. 

That red STR is so hot.  Drooooool.   Drool :leghump:

The standard model purple paint is also very hot.   Inlove




Yep, that was my first spin on a 675.  Those things must have test anxiety, cause that didn't feel anything like the dyno chart implies.  The arrow low mount sounded fantastic to.  It fit well, much smaller in a good way then the Speedy.  I'm going to check out that D675 this week for comparison.

I'm still not sure I should have walked away, the price left a lot of room for replacement/repairs.  I just didn't feel like getting into painting the bike and there were some other concerns.  The battery box had a broken tab (possible subframe damage), scuffs on the swingarm behind the muffler (some impact there), and the front brake felt squishy.  Its the same basic brake system as my ZX6r and I went through replacing the damaged master on that already.  It was just more work then I wanted to get into after just finishing the track bike which started in a similar state.  Everytime I went in to fix an issue, I'd find two more kind of thing.

Not all who wander are lost. I probably am, though
