What did you do to your Daytona Today?

Havn't seen this come around in forever so:

Washed it, toothbrush style, shes cleaner than ever

Then I got motivated and put on my new sprockets going from 19/44 to 18/46....

OMG I AM IN LOVE AGAIN! It lifted the front end in 3rd gear

Uhh, not what you probably expected to read, but I put the disk lock on and went out of town to shoot guns with my son.

Cool

CRAP !..........found a staple in my rear tire!.Now riding the TT600 for a bit while Mr Pirelli sends me two new "Angels" for my Daytona . Hope they work as well as they are supposed from all the reviews I've read.

Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death…

Talking

Put the plate, indicators and rear taillight back on. Hooked the headlights up and peeled the tape off. Reinstalled the mirrors.

Put her back into street mode.

Hard to know exactly what people mean by 'the real world'. Whatever it is, this is the primo sports bike for it. Plenty of everything and that triple howl! Sept 03 T.W.O.(Triumph Daytona955i)

A bit of irony for you is that two of the firearms I took are English.

Can't be Brad.......... we're not allowed to have guns over here. Oh no, no, no we cannot be trusted.

Now I wonder why there is so much knife crime?
