I havent had any problems with mine, except that it tends to boss me around, I really do intend on goin the speed limit, honest. But the damn bike jus has a mind of its own

I'd say that speeding tickets and SUVs are the biggest things to "look out" for...

...seriously, all of the oil-cooled bikes have a reputation for standing up well even under abusive conditions... I wouldn't think that there is anything specific other than the normal wear-and-tear kinda stuff to look out for (fork seals, 1st or 2nd gear skipping, poor maintainence, etc).

Just check the whole thing over o see if it's safe are the brake lines original and split ? is the front spocket on properly is the chain tension correct and what are the tyres like etc etc..............

yes, and keep an eye on the oil level and all will be well.
