Bought in Nov 2000 as a winter/bad weather hack.
Engine is fine but gutless no problems here.
Exhaust is very thin and poor quality rusts too easily even when high temp painted. I am on my second down-pipe and muffler. Handling is superb you can almost lay the bike down on corners, the tyres grip so well. I have ridden in snow, ice, mud and on very wet roads and only 2 or 3 times (in nearly 10 years) have I felt a bit of a slide. The brakes are very good and I find the ride comfy, stress free and a whole lot of fun. A very big grin factor bike is the Trailway.
