I am new to the forum and have never ridden a modern bike.
My current road bikes are British, two Nortons and three Vincents. When I look at modern bikes, they generally don't stir the soul much.
For some reason, probably 45 years of Brit bike ownership is part of it, the modern Triumphs are different. In particular I like the 2002 to 2006 955i Daytonas.
Right now there is an 02 dssa close to home(Vancouver, BC.) that sounds interesting. It is a one owner bike with just 7500 miles on the clock. Asking price is $5100
Another that is worth a look but is farther from home is an 06, also a one owner but with 9600 miles, priced at $4500. Both bikes have risers bars, so Im thinking older riders like me, so probably hooligans
Kidding, seriously the older rider thing is probably a good thing. It is unlikely that either of the bikes has been tethered to a tree with the throttle pinned, as those young'uns sometimes like to do!
The 06 bike has aTuneboy tune and the bike comes with fore and aft stands.
Were there any important upgrades between 02 and 06?
Is the dssa really going to matter to an old gaffer like me?
The seller makes quite a bit of it.
