I was 50 when I bought it. I loved it. But the older I got the more I dropped it. 3 years ago I was installing lowering links & it fell off the stand. I had to pay a neighbor's fence builder to help me lift it onto it's wheels. I haven't ridden it since. I did install frame sliders so I can hold onto it while lifting. If I ride it out of town & drop it I'm possibly stranded. So it got replaced in 2019 with a Honda NC700X which feels like a 400 because the weight's down low. And the seat is lower. The Wee has spent 3 years under tarps in the back yard & I took them off & saw rat nests between the cylinders. I'm not going to keep insuring a bike I lost interest in so I have to fix it, replace the starter button that broke off when it fell & get it inspected before my insurance expires Jan 15. Get a new battery & clean the rat turds out of the air box. Had I known how fast I would age I would have bought the SV650 instead but it felt a little cramped to me in 2007. Not today. Has a little over 9,000 miles on it. I've never owned a bike this long & I've never put this few miles on a bike. It is a great bike for a young, strong person with long legs. Had a blast on it the first few years. Spent money on mods & installed most of them. I haven't posted here in a long time, just had to relay my experience for any middle-age riders with legs under 33" looking for a long term bike. This isn't it. I'll put it on local Facebook ads in a few weeks. No room in the garage for it. 2 motorcycles, 2 scooters, 2 bicycles & a ton of my wife's hoarder shit. I know, this post will hit a few nerves, it's the nature of motorcycling to be passionate about our bikes. It's not the bike. It's me. I'm 64 & my inseam is 32" & the Iron Giraffe is no longer a practical choice for me as of about 2015.
