I bought a used one with 27k, beat the shit out of it, took it to Central America, crashed it, drowned it, picked up hitchhikers and not only did it get me home, but went right back to CA with its new owner. Only things replaced were tires, oil and plugs (and mirrors :-) ). And the girlie hated me for selling it (big mistake putting her on a comfy first bike).
It's a bit low on power when you want to go all out, and the brakes do suck. The fork brace is ESSENTIAL! It's also a bit boring, but that may be a good thing with the wife on the back. Super practical city bike, and handles the dirt when needed.
