Welcome! New to forums in general? Here's a good place to start learning the ins and outs: http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm?link_id=27678
The thick skin part is especially important. We don't tolerate insulting fellow members around here, but every English-speaking country (even the ones who only meet that criteria through sheer generosity, like Canada, eh?
) is represented here, and quite a few non-English speaking countries too. So senses of humor may differ. If a Brit is 'taking the piss,' it doesn't involve a trip to the urologist, for instance.
Anyway, welcome to TriumphRAT! The 675 is an awesome bike; my best friend has one, and it's a great motorcycle.
