No experience with either of the People scoots but I can tell you the Agility 125 will handle your speed range, so they should as well. Unless there's hills. Damn hills.

Oddly, I like the look of the current batch of V-Stroms a little better than the look of the NC700X. Not those :puke1 early models though.



I can dig the Bonnevilles and the TU250. Especially...

Hah, that's about how I look at it. The thing isn't pretty but my taste runs toward classic standards, so nothing really looks good to me. It covers all the bases and it isn't a night fighter, so I...

Looking at your feet instead of riding the bike will do that to you. From the sound of things, he is not willing to take responsibility and try to fix his own stupidity. Maybe he should take up...

Yep, that's the important part. Scabs were a good idea back in the caveman days but with petroleum jelly/neosporin, they are a hindrance to healing. Some people get the itches from long term exposure...

Yep. I'm eying the NC700X myself, because it will do everything I want and do it economically. It appears to have good storage, fuel economy, sufficient power, a riding position that won't make me...

I am not at all surprised. I reckon the majority of bikes sold in the US are used as toys or "male enhancement products" first and vehicles second. The NC700X isn't a cruiser and it won't win any...

Everyone needs a little "no-mind" in their day and motorcycling is high in Zen. Says so in the nutritional information, on the left side. I try to supplement my day with a lot of Zen - I get a lesser...

Nope, I'm saying there's one at the top of the ramp. :D In this case, the intersecting road (SR25/Highway 411) is higher than the interstate (I-20).

This is not a service road by the definition I...

Thanks for the review gfloyd2002 and for the info about fraying, AceRider01. It's never cut and dried, is it?

That's helpful feedback. Stiffness doesn't bother me too badly in clothes and I too will be turning to external gear for rainy days. I do wonder about the cool weather performance (wouldn't expect a...

Thanks for all the feedback guys. I'm leaning toward REV'IT. It sounds like Olympia flows enough air but stitching issues on relatively expensive gear just doesn't sit well for me.

Must be one of those days, because a chick on a cruiser merged in front of me today. I'm in the right lane, she's coming off the interstate. She has a yield sign and this is a very busy four lane...

Hot Weather Gear - REV'IT vs Olympia
