Bought the bike to commute on - sick of late, astinking trains. Did everything asked of it, and provided a fair bit of fun. Easy to ride, easy to service, cheap to run, comfy. Discovered this : http://groups.msn.com/yamahadiversions - the friendliest, most informative bike group on the net. Strengths: Cheap, comfy, cheap, easy to service, cheap, unintimidating for new riders, cheap. Weaknesses: Cheap a bit slow.
