Loving My 96 Daytona 900

Picked it up yesterday and rode it for the first time. Love the feel of the bike, though its going to take some getting used to. Previous (and first) bike was a 1982 Yamaha Seca 650, so this is quite a step up.

I'll say! How long did you ride that first bike?

Welcome to the forum! What continent are you on?




I won't stop riding because you tell me about someone who died in an accident, just as I won't stop eating because someone died of e.coli.

Just one season, took a safety course early last year, bought the bike and rode all year and loved it. Knew I wanted something bigger and a better fit. Looked at a couple Honda VFRs, but I liked the Daytona a lot more. Being a little over 6' tall, the VFRs just felt to small.

I'm in Canada.

VFRs are good bikes, but Daytonas are great. Good choice!

Weyburn, eh? Where's the nearest curve in the road?

We don't have curves in our roads. Which sucks Have to drive about 1000K (600 miles) to get to some nice areas for riding. Now if I could just find where the VIN is on the engine on this bike. Have to take it down and get it "inspected" (they compare frame and engine serial numbers). I wouldn't think you'd have to pull anything off, but in the 10 minutes I had at lunch today, I couldn't find it.

Its actually been a really good spring. Had my Seca out probably 3 weeks ago, and had the Daytona out on the highway yesterday to bring it home. We hit 19C today. Didn't get much riding in though.
