I just jumped off my 50cc scooter and parked it next to my Wee. For me, a scooter is transportation and a motorcycle is for recreation, no matter how much displacement it has. Maybe my opinion...

So close, yet so far. If I could just somehow sneak my Wee through North Korea I could try some of those routes. Keep the reports coming. Great stuff!

Thanks for the link. I'll be keeping an eye out for a DR-Z 400S or similar this spring. Though that 990 Adventure on there for ~17,000,000 has me thinking of selling everything I have.

Bummer. I just found out about this from a local shop a couple days ago. Any idea of the winter schedule or any other events? I'd love to do a demo day of the 450, or any BMW for that matter.

Suspension is what I found to be the biggest issue off-roading on my scooter. Ground clearance is a close second. Neither can be easily fixed. There's a reason you don't see many scooters off-road.

Most of it's there, in parts in the bottom of the boat. You can see the lower half of the unit here. The photo was supposed to show the embankment I almost rode off.

I did a few laps up onto the bank and then back down to the mud. It was pretty squirrely at the transition.

Daelim ATS 50 in Mud

The water level at Cheongpung Lake is rapidly rising with the summer rain, so I took the ATS 50 out for a spin in the mud flats before they're gone. This boat will be afloat in a week or two.
