Given that list, I'd suggest taking a close look at the Triumph Street Triple R, and at the Kawasaki Z1000. I've testridden all three that you mention, plus several others, and the two I mention were the best IMO. The other bike I've tested in that general price range that I really liked was the Ducati HyperMotard 796.
Test ride all six (plus anything else you can get your hands on), and buy the one that makes you smile the widest.
If you are interested, I can post my riding impressions of all six bikes.
But based on the bikes considered, if I were you, I would go with the Daytona. You're only young once. Might as well ride the bike now that you won't be able to ride when you're 50 or 60. That is my thought.
Phil, Ive read some fo your reviews of bikes, I like them. Instead of posting in individual threads, you might post links to a thread where you you review them in a master "phils testride link thread" Along with a quick bio of your riding experiences and bikes...as well as your general usage and wants out of motorcycling. It would save you alot of time, and really make for good reading for lame ass virtual testriders, like myself.
On a side note..how does the Daytona 675 deal with bumpy roads..not like potholes..but playing around on roads with surfaces that are less than perfect? How about the FZ1?
Im concerned mostly with bumps while cornering..I have grit and determination to deal with the straight up and down bumps
Phil I also noticed you are on ADVrider.. you might consider doing something similar there?
