Very much so, I have worn out a couple of chains and a rear cassette so far. But as I said before normal running amps suggest the motor is nearer a 350watt one..
It has been laid up due to the snow but has been going fine, just needed a rear gear due to me not changing the chain when I should have. None of the water issues mentioned. So so far well worth the money
It is not legal to have more than 3 shots in this country on a shotgun licence! Try an Auto flurry shoot, great fun and is about the only place you get to use the full use of the 303.
Thanks for the comments, I think another issue is the bike always takes the same time but the car journey can be a lot longer, easily affected by excess traffic or a bit of road works. Though I do thing it is safer by car when its raining and as for the snow and ice we had recently, all I can say is I don't bounce as well as I used to!
