I bought this new in June, 2010 and have put on 7,500 km. since then. I use it for my daily commute and exploring on the weekends. It's very reliable--not a single issue (other than my own breakage). Despite the lack of a rack, I strap my Sea Eagle inflatable kayak on the back and hit some of the more remote, hard-to-reach lakes near here. I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone considering a dual sport. It'll do 150 km./hr. top speed and climb most hills. My pet peeves are a small gas tank (7 litres), not terribly comfortable seat, and a rear turn signal that flops out when you look at it sideways. All in all, though, it's just plain fun.
