I´ve had mine for a while now and we´ve been through hell and back. She can easily dust most things on 4 wheels with her great HP to weight ratio and can just keep up with the crazy 120-140kph HWY401 traffic. Super cheap everything. OEM parts and after market accessories are still cheap and easily available and the engine is rock solid. Perfect for zipping around the city but long trips (6hours+) on the highway can get uncomfortable and she´s bad on gas above 120kph. For a bike anyway.
They are still common since they rarely die. You can crash her all you want too. Just kick the handlebars and pegs back, remount the signals and away you go. If you get one, spend the 80 bucks and buy some nice big Virago mirrors. They look good and they´ll save your life.
