I've had my 2005 R* for about 2 years now. Found it on CL with only 5400 miles on it. After 15,000 miles I've had no mechanical issues with it. The only problem I occasionally have had was sitting in traffic. It doesn't like that much. The fuel seems to get hot and she runs a bit rough. Now I either shut it down while waiting or find a better route. You're gonna love the torque this bike has.
