To be honest, I used a Honda Spree with my RV for many, many years. There was no place it couldn't go. If you couldn't ride it, you pushed or carried it over or around any obstacle.

I saw a new 09 Kymco Agility 125 at a dealer this past weekend for $1650 OTD. They had a couple 09 150s for $2200 OTD.

For that kind of money I would consider Kymco.

Opinion on Riva 200z

Ran across a 86 Riva 200z in immaculate condition. Guy is asking $750 for it, I can probably get it for less since he has had it for sale for a long time.

What say the jury, good deal or no?

My brother bought a new Rokon Trail Breaker back in the late 1990s. It was a slow beast. Too heavy for the trail, too slow for the road. I could ride circles around it on my Honda Trail 90.

Opinions on Kymco B&W 250?

Acquaintance has the above 04 for sale. Less than 3K miles on it. Like new condition. Asking $1700 but will take less. I don't know anything about Kymco's or the Bet & Win 250.

Opinions?
