"...was taken out of the Yamaha Thundercat. Itís a great engine in my books. Even after the 46,000 miles and unknown service history, it makes all the right noises and does all the right things. The cam chain is a little rattly when the engine is cold, below 3000rpm, but either above this or when the engine is warmed up, it sounds remarkably smooth! I canít remember the official bhp, but Iíd estimate around 90bhp, which is just about right in my books ..." Read review

Great 1st Road Bike for early Mid-Life Crisis

AdvantagesPerformance, Cost

DisadvantagesQuality of finish disappointing, Falling Off

"I've wanted a bike for ages, used to ride scramblers as a teenager but never got around to getting one on the road till last year. It was simple really, wife has a baby and I decide to get a bike (and rid myself of disappointing Golf GTi in the process - see separate opinion!). I spent about 2 months doing my CBT then Direct Access training, all the while looking at the magazines and wandering around the local showrooms, my first intention was ..." Read review

Its Good To Be Back - to Biking

AdvantagesGood performance/handling

DisadvantagesDurability of paintword

"My last bike was 10 years ago, a Honda VF500. That was a v4 four stroke and reasonably powerfull at the time. I had to sell to buy a house and regretted it just about every day since then. Last year I remembered a 15 year old insurance policy and thought I'd find out what it was worth. When I found out it was enough for a new bike and change, that was it, policy cashed - ker-ching. I used uk.rec.motorcycles to get some idea of what bike to get, ..." Read review
