Got this bike in pretty bad nick and have sorted it and restored it since then :D The handling is amazing-it can get low, its great at low speeds, I passed my mod 1 on it, it handles switchbacks easily and the engine is immense. Mine has a tuned engine, and once its warmed up it goes, but let the powerband loose and hold on tight-this bike kicks out about 28bhp when tuned properly, and if you keep the stock exhaust, reliability isn't damaged too much. The lights let you see, the seats quite comfortable and the poisitioning not as bad as an RS. Leave it outside and it'll suffer, quite a bit. Leave it in the cold and you'll have to choke-start it.
