Summary:

I really like this ride!!!

Faults:

The bike had only been ridden 749 miles in 9 years. Sat with gas in tank and carb. Seemed to run OK, but I had tank cleaned and carb work done. Runs like a "top".

General Comments:

I've had Hondas Goldwings, Harleys, Yamahas and even a Zundapp, but this bike is my favorite. Low seat, good looks, and even at 650cc it performs very well. Added a windshield, bar and rack. Windshield added a lot to rideability.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
