I've had many different bikes in the past, yzf's, blades, even a brief spell on WR426 as my road bike, but none have been the complete all rounder that the TRX has been. I'm no Fogarty on the road, and never will be, but the TRX has to offer brilliant allrounder capabilities, whether just out for a Sunday ride with the guys, or going to Spain for a few weeks fully loaded. I've never had to do any major work in 14K miles, just regular servicing, fluids and filters. Cheap insurance, and quite unique for a jap bike, you don't see that many about, unlike some of my previous bikes. I would highly recomend a TRX to anyone who wants a bike for all seasons, and all purposes, and i'm told that Jamie Whitham uses one as a track tool!?! Strengths: A genuine all rounder, as quick as any road rider should be going, and capable in any scenario, carries a full compliment of soft luggage with consumate ease.. Weaknesses: Front brakes do require serious upgrading, and the riding and pillion seats offer little comfort over long distances.
