After reading the MCN review I have a few nags that need putting right. As a testosterone filled college student, it would be an understatement to say I spank my CR, and still never fail to get less than about 250-60 miles on a brimmed tank which at current prices is only 11ish quid.
After having a slightly larger sproket on the rear at around 4000 miles, I have cruised from the Southampton area to Bedford using the m25 etc, at approx 60 mph without feeling out of place or as if a piston was gonna join me on the seat.
My last nag has to be about the handeling though. If you don't mind a few scratches on the pegs it can go knee down as I rather stupidly discovered after tryin to keep up with a mates R6.
The testosterone aside however, after all this abuse and the occational adventure under a heavily flooded bridge on the way to college, it has never put a foot wrong. Only costs bout 20-30 quid a month in fuel doing a 20 mile commute 5 days a week and the best bit is the cheap as chips servicing costs of around 80.
One bit of handy advice though, the rear tyre is a bit tricky to find but metzler do a brill one for around 40 quid. You won't need to worry though till around 6-7000 for the rear however, and a more standard sized front is still going strong after 10500 miles in just over a year.
Buy a custom and all your days will be merry with the added bonus that girls actually like the dam thing!!! Woop Woop!
Love the reviews and advice from MCN though, keep up the good work!!
