Information: This was my first bike and it successfully taught me the basics from the CBT right up to practicing in my own time for the DAS test. It was initially in a cosmetically poor way, but a few tins of paint later and it looked as good as new and went like it to.
I bought it November 2003 and my first ever ride outside of the CBT schoolyard was in snow!! It was used throughout the depths of winter and never missed a beat, always getting me to my destination. I did my DAS test in spring and later part exchanged it in June after having saved up enough for something a bit bigger.
