Hi from Florida! Daytona 650 questions

I just missed out on purchasing a daytona 675, and am presently looking at a 2005 daytona 650. I am settled on getting a Triumph. I am looking for a link to common problems with the 650 and what I should look for when I go check it out.

Cheers,
Erik

I owned a 650, a very nice bike, and a more spacious and comfortable bike than the 675. And great real world performance and handling. A real deal today in the $3500 range. No major issues, but pay attention to the finish, particularly under the fairing...forks, engine covers, etc are prone to pitting.

Hey, GarageBrew.

Do you have a Triumph dealership there in Tampa/St. Pete you are happy with? I'm not really pleased with the dealership in Orlando where I bought my bike and even though Tampa is a bit of a ride, I do get over that way on occasion.
