Summary:

Great bike, still love the look of it

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Pulls like a freight train. Gives Japanese bikes of the same vintage a run for their money.

Still turns heads.

Very reliable, and plenty of storage with the panniers.

Pretty heavy in slow traffic and tight turns.

Brakes well and behaves in heavy traffic.

Important to keep the maintenance up and tyre pressures right.

Has plenty of class and heritage.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
