  8. i like em, they're different, and apparently barrels of fun :D

    BUT, your gunna change your mind so much in the next few months that it would suprise me if you didn't end up upgrading to something at a completely different end of the scale. tastes change as you ride and so does your style and priorities, you might even decide that a goldwing is what you really want next, but i doubt it :LOL:

  15. Pros:

    Mean and Nasty
    Different
    Handles pretty good
    Has no messy chain
    Innovative design with impressive attention to detail

    Cons:
    Ancient engine (feel the vibe baby)
    Gearbox has been poor to-date (they might have improved it for 2006)
    Has no messy chain (which creates its own issues)
    No cup-holder as standard

    nar, short wheelbase, low height, great torque (dont start the V2/I4 thing Ibast :wink: ), comfy postion. its a wheelie/twistie machine with no intention at all of being a racer. never ridden one, but its on my to do list, soon as i can find someone willing to lend a $12000 bike to a coconut :?

  20. Reliability was an issue, but they're a fairly fast moving company and seem to be getting on top of that.
    They also had problems with quality control, but again, they're a fairly fast moving...etc.
