I recently picked up this clean example after selling off my 98 BRG to a fellow inmate.
I have very little complaints about this bike.
The 98 was fun this is more fun, the 98 was reliable and easy to ride, the 05 is more reliable and easier.
The 98 had a soul, the 05 is quickly getting one.
I miss the 98 a lot
I look forward to adding many miles to the 05, I hope it gets me to 80k miles like the 98 did.
