Simply the best bike I have had, and i have had 56 bikes.
Rides very easily for a big heavy bike, very easy to ride in town or motorway.
Very flexible engine, superb brakes and pin point handeling.
Only down side, slightly clunky gearbox.
Cheap to service, and even cheaper if you do it yourself.

After riding a naked sports bike, Kawasaki Z750, I fancied a change as most of my riding is slow. I'm a marshal for many different charity events all year round so...
