Sometimes I wonder if it will be really reliable enough for the job... cracking coils, hall sensor madness, freakin diodes can go bad, ignition module can fry, hmm what else?
But i am still in love with it and learning how to fix her by the side of the road :p
(might be trauma, but my R65 was the first bike that left me on the road and I had to call for help -> bad crack-o-matic coil = no spark)
i bought mine from an adv member this summer, and thanks to his efforts in maintenance and light restoration it's been exceedingly reliable and fun to ride.
