Sorry Bo. I would like to but Austrian/Indian food is to rich for my taste and always gives me gas.

OK - I'll give up. You must be more youthful and vital than we give you credit, 'cause the 675R looks like a back breaker if used for anything but a trackie.

Good luck with your diet too.

I'd like to see the Street Triple R get the Ohlins and Brembos from the 'Tona. Though, at $9,999, the Streety R is a screaming deal.

With Oxnard saddle bags, a tank bag, custom rear sets, WP suspension and Gillis clip ons the 675 has been from Houston to Sturgis, a 1500 mile jaunt, 2000 miles with the folks from TRAT in TN,SC,NC,GA this year and all total 12,400 miles of road and track. No more uncomfortable than any other sport bike.

Yeah but I am not comparing it to a clip-on'd sports bike.
