Shrek, My college roommate had one of those and he rode with me on a late fall tour out west. We would switch bikes once and awhile just for giggles. For me it was too small physically but it did have plenty of kick and kept up fine with my 750. It was a delight in the curves but a bit short of legroom on the interstate. Range was not so good so we planned gas stops accordingly. I ran it out of gas once being happy on the throttle but we just siphoned enough out of my Suzuki's 5 gallon tank to make it to town. A very reliable bike which was good for my roommate as he had no mechanical aptitude. Certainly a great around town and daytripper type bike - a long distance tourer it was not.
