Happy with the beast , persevering with the tyres till they're stuffed then get some decent rubber on , they're ok for most blokes but I'm taking this thing where i take my 300 , well not to the hard-core spots . I like : the power , economy , standing position is good with peg and bar position , brakes . Ok are : forks , could do with valving (i do jump it of washouts , to be fair ) , centre stand , the pro's of which out number the cons though , cause although its a bit wide it protects the pipes and i use it heaps , so it stays . Hand guards were weak so fitted Barkbusters. Bad: nothing that cannot be sortaed but , it can be hard to start from cold , ok if you prime the pump a couple of times before you crank it . It has stopped on hills , not a flame out as such but like I've turned it off . All seems like a good map is in order . ABS switch , inconsistent , i have fitted my own now anyway that kills front and back .

Single track weapon its not , funny thing is i get it places by filling ruts in the weekend warriors leave behind , they must get stuck on a root and hold it wide open , I'll get this thing over logs with no clearance yet weekend warriors ride around , I'm going to throw some descent tyres at it , start playing on weekends and stir the warriors up a bit . Nice being able to ride most of my regular tracks then explor a bit and ride home via highway on a 110 ,
