Bottom line: My Honda Reflex is simply more FUN to ride than my 123 hp Yamaha FZ1. Scooters are probibly best for those who are not uptight and don't take themselves too seriously.

I, too love my Helix. My Yamaha FZ1 gets little use since this scooter came into my life. My wife's new Kymco People 150 is a fun little bike, but the Helix is amazingly capable for a 250.
