Summary:

Little mule

Faults:

The last owner neglected the bike, but after I fixed, tuned and cleaned my new used bike, I have to say that its been one of the most reliable bikes I've owned. There is nothing wrong with my bike.

General Comments:

I've owned quite a few bikes in my life, and I never would have thought I'd love riding this bike so much.

I'm 6'2 and I weigh 280lbs, and the bike handles me fine for it being only 800cc.

I was initially gonna clean it up and resell it, as I got it for a good price, but when I heard the engine growl, I had to gut the pipes and let her make some noise... WOW this bike had balls! Now it's one of my favorite bikes to ride, and the plastichrome looks really good too.

I've put over 6,000 miles on it in the last 11 months... What does that tell ya.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
