I have a SYM HD200 and have heard that the cup type canyon dancer can mess up the plastic chrome bar ends. You should consider this if you have something similar.

I would have to say that standing next to it, it seems pretty small. It is a bit smaller than the HD200 in the background. I believe the name of the place was Beach City Scooters.

Unfortunately I have not been riding enough to wear out my first one. I would bet that I could get about 3000 miles out of it though, but it would be well worn then. It does see a lot of pavement.
