Nice!

I have a little yellow Daytona 675 (sorry, no photos on the work computer)

Suzuki C800. I've changed the pipes, air filter, seat, risers, panniers, air horns and sissy bar since this video so it actually doesn't look much like this.

Alas, time has changed. It sits in my shed for more the 10 years now. I need to do something about that.

I'm almost 21 and still don't have my car drivers license.
Why would I need it anyway when I have my bike license.

Here's my baby. (well a google image of it anyway, but same thing.)

2011, Ninja 250r. White.

But I really want is a Triumph Daytona 675. Hands down the sexiest bike in the world.

Agreed. I'm considering getting one myself. Just don't think it'd be a great bike as an only bike where I live, since 90% of the riding is straight (Texas...) As a second bike or track bike though, I'm still considering it, but insurance is a bitch on top of paying $6-7k for a good used D675.

That or selling the S3 and going haywire to buy this:

RE: Motorcyclists, ahoy!
It would depend on the length you ride I suppose? and how often?

I ride 6 550km trips a year and on my 250 my ass goes numb after 150kms or so. Not comfortable to ride over long distances at all, BUT I ride it a lot more, every day in fact, around the city which make sit worth while.
Bit hard to lane split on a big Harley or something.
And I can't imagine the Triumph or that very nice Ducati being much better.

Also we don't have high insurance but we have really high registration (paid once a year), like twice/three times the price of a car. They claim it's because we crash more and cost the government a ton of health costs. ('free' health care here). Which is a load of crap because why do you think we crash? because ass hole car drivers don't look and pull out in front of us. But whatever that's a discussion for another day.

I ride every weekend and to work when I can Smile I've done 800km/500mi in a day and it was quite tough... would be far worse on a sportbike like the 675 or 1199, but the S3 is a quite straight up & down riding position, lower rearsets than a sportbike, so it's more comfortable. But still, I can only go 2-3 hours before I start wanting to take a break. I ride about 250-300mi every sunny weekend. The reason I'm hesitant is because all the roads are straight - sport bikes are much more fun with curvy roads. S3 is a good balance between a touring bike that's great for straights & crap for curves, relatively and a sportbike that's great for curves, but crap for comfort.
