As you already found out, you can have an immense amount of fun on a Zuma 125. It can take a totally mundane motorcycle trip and turn it into a grand adventure. I only have just over 1500 miles on my recently purchased Z125, I have been outfitting it for adventure. A stock rack, an Emgo trunk, soft saddlebags, highway bars (so I can use the entire floor for storage) and a hook, to help hold all that stuff in place. Hopefully it will have 7000-8000 miles on it by around the first of May, which is close to the end of riding season around here.

I have scaled my adventures down in speed and distance (due to age and medical issues) but spending several days on the road on a small scooter is hard to beat. I would have done it a lot sooner if I hadn't been into that "bigger, faster, farther is better" frame of mind for so long.
