I bought a 2017 675 R last week from a distant dealer making this my first Euro bike. I've owned UJM's all my cycling life going back to the early seventies. Cost was the main stumbling block to owning a classy machine like the Triumph but my retirement eight years ago helped me reach a long time goal. I'm looking forward to enjoying the company of this machine on my rides through the locales of my new home on the Alabama/Georgia line.

Is that a 675 R street triple or Daytona :p
If it's a Daytona R I'm impressed that you've chosen this as your first European motorbike and 8 years after retiring, I plan on keeping mine as long as I can.

Enjoy! I too swapped a lifetime of Japs for my first Triumph. So far (27k from new) seems to have all the reliability but with WAY better handling and looks :) Think this one's a keeper

Hey CafRacer and kdxandrew, it's a standard 675,not a Daytona. Much more refined than my previous half dozen or so UJM's. I'll ride too until mother nature and father time step in and make me stop.
