Bought this bike just over a year ago, 35000 miles £900. 33bhp restricted, fitted them myself, and removed about 2 months after. She'd spend the past few years living in a ditch, fairings held on with duct tape, cable ties, stickers, rust patches, the works. Patched it up as best I could (student budget...), all the bike anyone would ever need. She would hack, tour, race (off road at one point, unintentionally...), wheelie, pick up girls, anything I could throw at her.
She's seen off 20000 miles since I bought her, two winters, countless snowfalls, f*ckton of road salt, odd drops, slides, scrapes, everything, and still running sweet as ten years ago. Only changes I have made are a new cam chain tensioner, top box, new tyres, chain and sprockets, and a shed load of cable ties.
Learnt everything I need to know about bikes by taking her apart and re-assembling, and generally messing around. Riding position was brilliant - I'm 6'2" and made London and back with nothing but the odd fuel stop.
If you're looking for an all rounder, buy one. Seen off R6s, Ferraris, Porches, a Blackbird, keeps up with the best. And will shrug off winter like a tank.
In short: when she finally dies, I'll buy another one.
