Its could be pretty close, just removing the stock exhaust pushes 675 Daytona's down to around 400 in ridable trim. There are numerous examples of sub 400 pound street triples floating around.

That's what my wife did. She got beat up pretty bad last fall on our Oregon/California coast ride. It was very windy. She started looking for a mid size sport tourer to replace her Street Triple but couldn't find anything she thought would work. She's ridden a lot of miles on the BMW F800s and doesn't want one, the Ninja 1000 was the closest bike she thought might work. I went on a search and came up with this Ermax screen. She loves it, and says it's hard not to speed now cause she doesn't feel the wind like she used to.





before the Ermax...


now the trees are going to be lot more blurred.

It is indeed

Boy they were fun times - do you have a copy of the picture with about 30 Triumphs all in a row ? Not sure who took that one.

Just notice Adam's Daytona far right...

OT: I was up at Camp Meade a couple months ago and the swimming pool is filled in, the cabins are all there but in a bad way. Sad to see the old place as it is...

Oh Man... I just noticed the CF bellypan that he got from Ian Noble... 'Kinell.. Keith and I stayed up there, I think it was'07, and they were honoring the reservations for the season, then doing the bakery thing. We found a great place in Barton, called the Pinecrest Motel and Cabins. Same kitchy kind of place, with no Reville at 0 Dark Thirty!!! I will look for that pic. Lost a ton of pics a couple of years ago when my hard drive died...


This one is from Bub's BBQ, probably '04



This one is outside a bar in colchester, CT. 1st year Adam Memorial ride...

Don't have that cool lineup pic any more...

You're a lucky man to have a wife like that.

Does she have a sister?

Regards, Paul

I got a good one as well. She'd be telling me for the past couple years "Sell that POS Honda and buy a REAL bike." Meaning a Triumph as she loved her Street Triple. Went and bought my Tiger. She told me more than a few times over the years "You need a new bike, go buy one." I tend to be more content with my bikes than her, she's owned more bikes than I have over the years. Yes she's a keeper and I am blessed.

PS Yes she does have a sister, but she's into horses , I got the good one.
