I have traveled far and wide with it, something that I couldn’t do before and the majority of my rides are random rides even though, some are business-related trips. Thanks to the low fuel consumption, maintenance costs(uses 1.7 liters of oil, oil filter i use the one for boxer, 150 bob only!!!), and no mechanical issues/breakdowns!!
The bike has given me the best riding experience and I have learned a lot with it especially how to handle its power, acceleration, braking in emergency situations, when to overtake and when not to (knowing your bike capabilities), how to handle tank slaps, how to maintain a bike (service), things to check before starting a journey, how to ride in the rain, which force to apply when braking on wet surfaces and dry surfaces, riding in the sand, off-road riding but worst, I have never pillion-ed and I don't want to!!!
One thing I like about this bike is that even though it’s a single-cylinder, the bike has power! It has a good picking speed and I’ve pushed it so hard in that it skips some digits on the odometer. For example from 1kms/hr. it will display 4kms/hr. next without displaying 2 and 3kms/hr. digits. The bike cruising speed is 140 - 150Kms/hr. depending on your riding skill and with no crosswinds, the bike does up to 160kms/hr. without pushing it hard.
Today, I left Eldoret at 9:44am and at 2:05pm... I was at Kinoo, 87 at the car wash.
The paint is as original as I bought it. Am planning to give her a better look soon! Please hide your girlfriends 😅😁😁
My three main mechanics are Oyaya Kenneth (body works), Ultimate Bikes Garage (service), George Mbugua (complete engine checks) not forgetting Alex Njiru (stickers). Thanks to them! 🙂
