Clip-ons, stiffer fork springs, SS brake lines, and a bash guard for the header pipe, and I'll be going cross country again

Have you done this before on a small bike?

Not on a motorbike, no. I did it on a bicycle recently, and I want to do it again on a motorcycle or scooter of some kind.

When they arrive on these shores, I will get one.

I'm liking the black. I have too many red bikes.

Can't imagine Honda US ever putting out an official video with wheelies, stoppies, and frying the rear tire. Good for Japan!

I think I will watch this one. It is unlikely to appear in the States, but I would pick one up if it does.

So what price would it take to make you get the checkbook out?

That is very cool.

Price wise in the U.S. it would have to be low... I mean, a Ruckus is $2,500 here so that thing would top $3k easily and at that price I would buy used.

If interested in mini's, check out this trip report, 9000 Km on a KSR 110 - http://www.gt-rider.com/thailand-mot...nture-Up-North.

All sorts of mods exist for the KSR, I test rode a bored out, clutched model that could barely keep the front wheel on the ground, plus it weighed less than I do (180'ish pds)

Want a mini 2!

Very cool. I want to bicycle tour as well but would rather go out of the US for new scenery.

I might go for $3,000.

I bought a Zuma125 thinking it would be fun for the city, but the thing just does not have enough lean angle, and I can not adapt to how it handles.

This would be just what I want. A street legal mini bike that has to be fun. Bring it!

That's how I feel about motorcycle touring now. Before my bicycle tour, I had only been to 3 US states, now I've been to 49, and thus want to tour in Western Europe next time I have the time/money. You might be surprised though, at how much there is to see via bicycle here in the US, and from a different perspective than you get from driving a car through places like Alaska, New England, or the Midwest.
