    I didn't find mine uncomfortable at all either mate.

    Bit harder to muscle around but still managed to put in some decent miles without being crippled afterwards

    I did just over 700 last weekend to Devon, Didn't hurt any more than the blade if i'm honest, yes you do get the weight after a while, but that tank bag was a good resting place..

    Yep, they still look good after 17 years

    They are a heavy bike compared to todays modern stuff, need a bit of effort and concentration when riding quick but the noise and character is addictive:)

    If I did use the Blade for commuting I'd have one of these in the garage in a heart beat.
