Summary:

Fun, exciting, just a great bike. I love it

Faults:

Right front tire wore the tread off on the inside totally in 6000 miles. Left tire had some inside wear, but just a little.

So far no help from the dealer or factory; dealer could find nothing worn or broken. Factory will not comment.

General Comments:

Love the bike, does all I ask and more. Just rode 1500 miles with 3 other standard bikes in the mountains, and had the time of my life.

Handles great, as good or better than standard bikes.

Just as fast or faster.

Very comfortable seat.
