    I was thinking of going over and checking it out. Give some support to the newest, and closest, Triumph dealer to me.

    And if they accidentally let me ride a speed triple that would be ok too.

    So I just called the dealership and asked some questions about the whole event. Unlike the wagner event there is no trailer and all the bikes are the dealerships so test-rides can be set-up for another day. All of the triumph line should be available.

    So I am def going to this, and would like to get there at 8:45am so I can sign up for a 675

    What time will that put you guys up there?

    I hope the rides are not "guided" because if they stick you on 675s and dont let you open them up it will suck. While they have plenty of grunt down low, they make a great sound when the air intake flap opens up in the higher revs. Once I heard that noise the break in limits were tough to abide by.


    And if the demo is not "guided" remember the bike has a top speed indicator in the dash for you current "trip". Little taddle tale bastard

    And if your inclined to wheelies one of the gripes I see on the 675 board is the mirrors are not well made and a hard landing sometimes will break them off.

    If we leave at 8am or a lil before, we should get there at 9am.

    In talking to the reps at the dealership, there is a good chance that the test ride isnt guided, but a route will be given for you to follow.

    I'm pretty excited to hop on one and compare it to what I have now, I'm sure I wont be disappointed.

    I'm bailing on this. Heading up early enough tomorrow morning to hit some nice roads on the way to Sunday River in ME. There is a European Bike meet going on.

    Got the whole day free for once, might as well use it. Enjoy the 675's. I'll be curious as to what you guys think of them

    ya the speed trip was sweet. The daytona 675 was cool too. Afterwards Terry, Bill, Harrison, and myself went over to Hampton Beach. The view was great. On the way back we hit up Blue Hills for a few passes.
