The yellow one that is.\n\nA lot cleaner than suggested by the original posted photograph. In fact a\nnice bike and the colour suits it. The front brake conversion looks cool, a\nNotrun with a gold anodised floating disc carrier, well I never! The\noriginal Commando disc was ok IIRC once the chrome had been ground off to\nreveal the cast iron rotor.\n\nThe compression seemed fair and it started easily enough... when the air\nlever was mastered. Considerably easier than a tuned unit T120 or XT500. It\nsounds *gorgeous*, both on the power and in overrun down narrow streets.\nThe performance was much as expected, pulling hard in any gear, comfortable\nand vibe free at 70mph, getting progressively rougher if pushed further.\nGawd only knows how it must feel at it's maximum 140mph potential. As with\nmost bikes of this type the 50-80mph range just feels *right* and ever so\nsatisfying.\n\nFront and rear brakes were good, the front could do with a dinky span\nadjustable lever. The handling was as it should be, planted and going just\nwhere it was pointed without shakes, on smooth or rough roads. Suspension at\nboth ends is plush. It runs out of ground clearance early so classic "toes\nout" riding is good, but nothing grounds hard.\n\nI've always been slightly ambidextrous and can rationalise left/right use in\nadvance. Just as bloody well. Reversed brake/gearchange side and a reverse 1\nup 3 down pattern all in one easy lesson... *FUCK*. Only one dodgy\ngearchange and one accidental stab on the rear brake.\n\nAll in all a very nice toy to have but I prefer the RD400 as they are half\nthe price ;o) Thanks Nige, both for the bike ride and the usual\nhospitality. I'm glad Sharon took us home early, one wouldn't want to look\nlike Pip on Sunday morning, would we.
