Keep us posted! I rode the Daytona R and it's absolutely fabulous though it felt lacking in 'feel' everywhere jumping off straight from my F4 to it. I am just so used to the F4 that riding anything else, I really miss that mechanical feel of the machine. Straight from the subtle vibrations in the handlebar to the gear shifting to all the pops and bangs from the exhaust etc etc. The Daytona felt like it hid all that from me. Not sure I liked that. I know I am weird...but there you have it.

It is finally home, first impressions after 100 miles:
Forget the problems with the fuel mapping that has been well documented, it is uncomfortable under 4000 rpm, but you can deal with it as long as to much time is not spent in town.
Gear change is slick and road holding appears brilliant, although restricted to 70mph
What did surprise me was that it was more comfortable to ride than the Daytona, suspension wise.
Surprise surprise when I arrived home the right hand grille was just about to fall off. Looks like a job for Super Glue
Photos will follow at the weekend

That's pretty huge Bruce. Both are nice bikes. Pure race bikes I thought.

Thanks for posting the triumph pic. After seeing the triumph, and the f3 pic below it, you can really see the styling the f3 has over the triumph. How does the f3 compare to the daytona? Is the mcn comparo accurate in your opinion?

Congrats Bruce, I have to say your Triumph is imacculate! no doubt your F3 will be kept the same way, did you change your mind on having the mirrors painted?

I still can't decide, I might just have the spoiler part painted instead.

Nice garden too
