    He may be biased but that doesn't mean he's not right. If I bought a sportsbike, and I wouldn't, it'd be the 675, but I wouldn't. But it would if I were to. But I won't.

    Might have a mosey down to the triumph dealership....
    It would be rude of me not to, considering I live 4 miles from the factory and did my work experience there when I was 16 :p

    Good result mate, at least it hasn't been to drawn out. Mind you, not that they would have a leg to stand on if they tried to avoid blame.

    Strange how they wouldn't allow you to have a 675? Mind you, mine is more to insure than my old 10R was...

    Good choice on the STR, I had one for a few months... great bikes. :)
