I have owned one since new. It won bike of the year. The machine handles great and has power that is very tractable especially low and mid. The top end is not as strong as the lower rpm's. The mid power makes it a great all around fun bike. Friends from years ago still ask me about the bike. Parts are just like any 20+ year old bike, hard to get. Starting is a pain and also a blessing. I tell people if you can start it you can ride it. Keeps my liability down I think.
