Grand old bike!


The only thing I ever had to do to this bike in the four years that I owned it was change the tires, and did not have to do that much. I always ran Metzler touring tires on it.

General Comments:

Excellent bike. Started first time, every time. Handled well, light weight. Bike also had a fairly low seat height. I would highly recommend this bike to anyone.

The only negative would have to be the way it handled in a severe side wind, but a lot of corrective leaning sorted that out too.

Great bike for beginners and experienced riders, and also good (in my opinion) for women looking to do some long distance touring.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
