Just picked it up today. No I have to decide whether or not I"m going to sell the 500. It would be nice to have both!

Pretty!
The gold up front will be liked by some & dissed by others.

Let us know the dynamics... pros & cons as you get your familiarity rides in, eh?

Yeah, I was listening to some sound clips on Youtube. The bike sounds amazing stock, but some of those aftermarket cans are unbelievable!

That picture doesn't do it justice. Dad was looking at some Triumphs so I rode down to the dealer in Lexington to check them out. That Daytona is just plain sexy, more so in person. Triumph has some good looking bikes all around.

I almost forgot, congrats!

I'll trade you a 1996 NINJA 500r for that Daytona you've got there....

This is a once in a lifetime deal Unworthy, I'd hate for you to pass it up ;)

Blent, for real marketing techniques, capitalize the R on 500r. It makes it faster.

My 500 is a 2006. I'll probably end up selling it, but not anytime soon. It's a hard decision to make becasue I like the 500 too.

Nice Bike! you asked if you should keep your Ninja 500R ? I say no way, keep the R500 long enough to comare the two bikes (like riding them both in the same day etc. ) but then sell the Ninja. Motorcycles are like women. Love the one you have and be happy ! In your case, she's a new RED HOT one !

It would be nice to commute most days on the 500 though. It would keep miles off the Daytona.

Though he may want to use easy commute miles to get the bike through the breaking-in routine.
