This has been my comutter bike for the last 6 months. It ran out of insurance and tax, so I'm now using the bicycle. Never thought I'd say this about a Yamaha, but this is a brilliant bike (the gearbox is not included in the compliment) to ride daily and for the twisties. I managed to survive the North London traffic come sun or come rain with no wing mirrors, indicators, speedo, rev counter, warning lights or temperature gauge. Havent changed tyres since I got it and it "runs like a champ".
