Overall I'd say an emphatic YES. There are annoying things about the bike like the plank that is the seat and the stock suspension which is only just adequate (IMO) and the bike was startlingly better when I fitted decent aftermarket suspension. However the overall quality of the bike is excellent, I still stand and stare at it with a huge grin on my face after 7 years of ownership.... She's a looker! And the character of the bike is just brilliant! Happy camper, me!
