I rode illegally (No license no insurance, no sense) in the 60s.
My boss bought a used '96 ACE from a friend of ours, who never had a problem with it.
Nor did my boss.
I bought a new '05 AERO. Loved the bike, but couldn't keep up on the hi-way.
No problems with it.
Went to visit family in Fl., and rented an 1800 & a 1300 for a week each.
Came back home, sold the Aero which had 65,000 miles on it in '08,
and bought my leftover '07 1300S, which now has almost 115,000 miles.
With no problems.
