The only thing I'd add to all the good advice above is that if you keep it below 5000 then it rides like a heavy 600 .....above that it's warp speed Mr. Scott and hello time travel.
What's not to like...?
Did you try the 6th gearWhat’s this thing I hear ??
It CAN go above 5000 revs ???
Already above legal limits when potting along below 5000 revs ……. Maybe I should be brave and venture into this mysterious area !!!
In all seriousness …. It’s a great bike, had mine 19 years !! It lives outside, gets a yearly wash, and is totally reliable !
Ride it gently and it’s a purring kitten
Ride it hard and it can be a lion with a bee sting!
