Wink New Ride

Well what a busy weekend for me it was.

On Friday I sold my vmoto Monaco 125cc and then placed my order for my new ride which i picked up Sat morning. I got a Scarabeo 200 & man what a difference.

The quality, the ride, the fuel economy - all so much better than the previous scoot wich i had for 6mths & 6,500km. I brought the shine red and added a SH33 box to her, which i want to get some reflective decals to cover my rear end.

I paid $5,400 on the road which was pretty good, part of the run out to make way for the injected ones which we will see next year

It will be perfect for my commute daily which includes maybe 15km of Motorway which is a 100kph zone. Took the Monaco on this daily which was fine in the morning when it was bumper to bumper but on the way home it was free flowing and scary. The new ride will be good for 130kph and wont have to battle headwinds

I'm a big fan of flat floorboards. Nice scoot.

Good on ya mate. Looks like a nice ride.

I learned to speak Australian from repeated viewings of Mad Max and from reading the Outback Steak House menu.

Love that huge disc brake, looks like she'll stop as fast as she goes! I didn't know that Scarabeo's were that expensive though.. looks well worth it though, resale red and all.

Carry on!
