It's a good choice for a classic bike. You get to go on all the "oldies" rides, and also get to make it home again. Put panniers so you can pick up all the Norton and Triumph and Harley bits the others drop!
Seriously, a good friend of mine has one, and it's a nice machine and an enjoyable ride. Bear in mind it is a vintage bike, and wasn't cutting edge when it was new. A Norton or Triumph will leave it for dead, never mind the idea of keeping up with any modern bike when the pace turns brisk.
The handling takes a bit of getting used to. The Germans called them "gummikuh
", which means "rubber cow". They are squirmy, and shaft effect is noticeable.
They are durable, reliable, and low maintenance (for their age).
