Chain tension sorted over the weekend - it's surprising how much a new chain stretches. Much better now.

I've also sorted the first service for first thing on Friday so i'll be taking a VERY long way home :D

Really? Very little stretch on my 675.

Don't have the chain too tight, these prefer a bit of slack.

Yes i had around 5cm of slack where the manual states 2-3cm preferred. It's going in on Friday so i will ask them to check it just in case.

To be honest i didn't check it when i first got it, so it may have been like that all the time.

Righto - back from service. Spent 2hrs getting back home :D

They checked the chain tension - spot on, so it was loose. It was better on the way to service, so probably loose from factory.

The bike just got even better - being able to rev it higher and leave it high into corners is the way with this bike i think. You can now sit it in 3rd and do most things, bang it down into second when needed. I've discovered the slipper clutch too now as i can rev it high and drop a cog into corners, kind of sounds like a small bag of spanners which i think is the slipper - never had one before.

I'm knackered now having thrashed it and being stronger on the downshifts - how anything is faster in the twisties would be beyond me. I can also confirm it will do 220kmh plus on a private track. Gets windy mind (blush)

The dealer said they change the ECU program slightly at first service and he's adjusted the ride by wire throttle a little as he said it wasn't quite calibrated other than that he said it's fine and get on with riding it (party)

I treated her to a tank of 98 and turned the traction control off for a while - i can also confirm she wheelies :)

So bloody capable - a revelation for me and i bike i can spank rather than be wary of at times. Magic (sun)

I can't remember what I got out of the RS, it wasn't as high as that but I know I was only in 5th and had to back off.

It sounds like you've really gelled with the bike. It has to be about the fun, which is what I'm getting from my two at present.

Nearly 1500 kms now.

It's loosened up nicely now and definitely revs faster too. I need a decent fly screen for touring i reckon, but its fine without a screen for blatting round the lanes.

I've given up worrying about revs in any way and it sits in sport mode now.

I've never had so much fun on a bike.

Puig do some very good stuff. It's very popular in Europe, not so in the UK. I've no idea why it doesn't seem to sell so well here.

I saw that 765 R dyno run on facebook. It does show that the RS is all about top end.

I've been out a few times on January, but it was bloody cold. Finally today it was 15 degrees and sunny, roads dry, warmish air temps and i wasnt either away, ill or knackered.

So i went out for a bimble, take it easy, test the new lid and screen on the bike and enjoy biking.

I'd forgotten how good this bike is - flatters me way too much and the bimble lasted all of 5 minutes until i was getting a shift on and throwing her round corners. This bike is naughty :D and what an engine - leave it in 3rd and it'll do anything.

New Puig screen is excellent and no problems with wind blast up to about 120mph (on a private track) today, so i'm happy. My new Nolan lid is better with earplugs and some extra foam pads round my ears, but it's digging in a little to my forehead, so a bit of squishing of the polystyrene inside should sort that. Integrated visor is brilliant.

Normally takes me a ride or two to get in the groove once the weather improves at the start of the year - not with this bike - it's ace. o/ Triumph do know how to make bikes these days.

Came back after 2 hrs and 6km left in the tank :?

That's what it's all about.

I reckon I'll get myself a 765 at some point. No idea when, but I would like to own one.

Well she was great on the Euro tour. The Puig sport screen i bought was perfect - no wind issues even at 90 / 100 mph.

I virtually doubled the mileage this week so shes now at 4000kms.

The fuel economy is a surprise too - she will do 220 miles to a tank if you dont go crazy so big distances are not such an issue. I did 450 miles to meet the boys on Wednesday and i got there no problems, fairly promptly with no aches and pains. It's easy to ride and fits me like a glove now.

Rosso Corsa OEM tyres are slighly showing a little squaring off but not much, they will certainly do me across the summer and i'm keen to put some M7RR's on it over the winter for next year as i got on well with them on my RC8. The Rosso's dont give much feedback and were admittedly ok in the deluges we rode through this week (better than expected) and stuck like shit to a blanket in the heat, but they dont have as much feel as the M7's thats for sure. Most tyres are more than capable for my limited skills but this bike gives you lots of feel so you notice the feedback more than the grip.

My luggage was great - rollup dry sac on the back and Givi tankbag up front (though the Givi let in more than i hoped and then a zip came away). But we had both extremes of heat and wet this week and i'm happy.

With some of the riding this week i'd consider a quickshifter but most of the time i dont need one. I'd also consider heated grips but only a cheap pair i think. I dont even think it needs an exhaust as when you are on the bike it sounds great and the induction roar is brill.

You learn a lot about a bike when you do big touring / hooning miles and this one i've learnt which modes i want it in and when, that rain mode is actually very useful when your on a mountain and it's so wet the mud is running across the road on blind switchbacks and I've come to the conclusion this is the first bike that fits me and what i do with them perfectly.

It's better than i can ever be, more than powerful enough. Tours well enough and eats the corners while giving me the confidence to push too far sometimes yet its forgiving and makes you smoother and faster.

It's brill and the measure is i miss riding it today and i've spend over 20 hours on it this week already (clap)
