Don't know anyone personally who rode one but from observations the bikes handled everything fine. Compact, handling and enough power to cope with the hills. And they crash well! A journalist hit a hole at high speed on the first morning and went over the handlebars. Broke a collarbone and tore off the rear subframe of the bike.


The Zeta guards work well. Had 2 low speed off's onto rocks and no broken levers. Money well spent.
Wouldn't mind some graphics for the tank but that will have to wait a year or two. Or a 690!
