Had a W1 back in the 80s. Bought it because it reminded me of the A10 BSA I had in the 70s. Now in 2015 I lashed out and bought a W800. Back in the saddle after 35 years of not riding. Still like the W but kinda wishing I had gone for the older carby version instead of the electronics. Prefer the crankcase looks of the W1.
With this one I have opened the pipes which sounded great but made it run very lean. Added a power commander to compensate. Now looking to improve the soft suspension and fit clubman bars.
