It sounded great, had torque for days, and the fans in the tail were an interesting touch ... but the thing that I remember more than anything is that it was impossible to get in to neutral, gave me several false neutrals in the hour or so I was on it, and the one time I managed to get it into neutral at a light, I couldn't get the damn thing back in gear again.
The center of the seat was angled up in the center so it was basically buttfcuking you too. My friend who owned it rode it from Buffalo, NY to Windsor, CT and said it wasn't all that bad. It would certainly not be my touring bike of choice.
I briefly considered pulling the trigger on one, until the Chinese acquisition. I come across them now and then on the cheap. But the support infrastructure is so poor that I'd almost be afraid to ride it.
