my friend still has his old '91 as a spare and loaner sled. It gets beat like a bad dog constantly. dam thing has good get up and go(after he put a good track on it that got some traction). it will sit for months in the rain,snow..., and if the battery is good, it will start on 2nd or third pull EVERY TIME! oh, and that nice triple has that sweet SRX bender sound too.my Bud just can't let it go, it will stay until someone steals it... again ! but that's another story.
