Not a bad bike, but a bit fiddly - things tend to break (kick stand rips out of the swingarm, exhaust mounts, exhaust, output shaft etc) and no big tank option. I like it, but honestly, if I'm going to ride a big, heavy thumper I want a big tank, otherwise I'm taking something drastically lighter/quicker. Botom line, I'd have loved to see the 605 really take off and get a bit more refinement and a big tank option. As it is, its a cool bike and I almost bought one earlier this year but have to admit its attraction is more its cool factor than its practicality imho.
