Finding my way home

In 2003 I bought a '94 Daytona 900 because it just fit me well. It was a wonderful bike while it lasted. Sadly, I allowed my older brother to ride it one day. Good thing I left my jacket and helmet on the seat for him. The was bike was totaled. my brother was hurt but not seriously. He mended very well for a 50 yr old.

I replaced it with a very nice Speed Triple but it was just not the same. Not as good a fit and not nearly as comfortable. They looked like they were practically the same bike. I got rid of it because it just didn't call to me to be ridden.

I made a rider out of my '77 HD Cafe Racer and use it now. It doesn't really ever call out either.

Now I've got the bug for another Daytona from that era. I came here to ask around for opinions.
