I bought this blade in May this year. I had not had a bike for 8 years, but after having 2 of these in previous years I decided it was what I wanted. I bought it from Arden motorcycles at Alcester and the guy I dealt with there has known the bike from new as he worked at the Stratford Honda dealer at the time where it was supplied. I am the 2nd owner, the first owner got the shop to sell it for him as he was 64 and and was giving up biking.
Since buying the bike I have fitted the new yoshi race can, powerbronze screen, pyramid rear hugger and adjustable brake and clutch levers.
The bike has covered 43,000 miles which is less than 2,700 miles per year, and it runs and rides great. My last one of these had 16,000 miles on and you wouldn't be able tell the difference.
The blade is in great condition for its age with a few small age related marks.
I love this bike but I just fancy something with a more upright riding position for a change so am selling it to get either a Triumph 955i speed triple or a fazer 1000 or a tdm900.
Mot'd till may next year.
