A lot of it looks cheap like textures you'd see on a a 80's jap bike. I just don't dig it at all. I'd like to sample it's go tho.
So since my previous post I got to ride my buddies Diavel - you should sample it's go. It's more than I'm ready to handle - I could only hold it wide open for a few seconds in 2nd and 3rd gear - 2nd gear the nose wants to come up, the electronics put it back down for you - runs on one cyclinder or something but pretty fun to hang on and just let her rip - but I didn't like the riding position - was glad to get back on my Bird.
