Still purrs after my use. My son used it till he went to college and then my daughter used it. I have it now as a grandfather and it still runs strong. Just got back from some mountain driving yesterday. Now my son wants it back, but I am not eager to part with it. It sure is worth more than the original $360 I paid when it was new.
Editor's Note: Thanks for the nice story and further testimony as to sturdy thesse little bikes are if not abused.
