18000 miles in the first year and 24000 miles after 18 months. All weather riding solo and 2-up.
Only sold when the wife was taken ill and we needed the money. Would we buy another one? You bet.
Fuel economy brill...50 mpg at 70 ish. Handling is wonderful at any speed and it stops well. Quicker off the mark than some people will let on. Boring? Not at all! No motorcycle is boring. This motorcycle is totaly underestimated by all who don't give it a try. Not a Blade, but a whole lot more.
Need a bike that works in the real word? Need a bike to tour the world two-up without all the rubbish and hype? Buy one of these...if you get a spare one...save it for us for when we're back on top.
