I have heard of it. Used to live in Seattle but never rode the entire route through eastern WA. Been gone from there for 20 years.

I am going to try and make it to SE AK and BC Interior one of these summers.

It Ran Great for the Abuse I put it through, however stalling issues big time with the stepper motor arm and clogged air filter. Handled great though. I am very happy with it. Reliable if you add on the extras for off road.
