A great dependable bike that has withstood the test of time
Little oil burning due to leakage past valve guides.
Really need to squeeze the hell out of the front brakes to get a response... you won't lock these up on a dime.
Okay, we are talking about a bike that is 30 years old this year. She is slow in comparison to a 2008, but she has withstood the test of time.
Yeah I get razzed from time to time about her age but I always reply: when your bike composed of rubber, plastic, and aluminum alloy is around in 30 years, and runs as good as this does, only then do you earn the right to brag :)
I got this bike with the factory installed fiberglass saddlebags. She also has the rear luggage rack with an upright back seat rest that is very comfortable for the passenger.
She is very responsive on the throttle and with the 4 cylinder, shaft drive, a very smooth ride.
She is the perfect bike for leisurely touring; just sit back and watch the scenery flow by.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
