Got pics of my new 2015 PCX150 and just a couple of where I went today on my first ride (75 miles).
The water is Rend Lake Reservoir. Man-made lake--13miles long, 3miles wide, 18,900 acres, lakeshore of 162miles, took eleven years to fill and one of the largest lakes in Illinois.

I bought a clean '02 Aprilia SR50 back in April. 1200 miles, one owner, couple scratches but nothing serious.

In May I wrecked it...

And this is what the machine looks like now -

I plan on adding a exhaust, suspension, & paint it this winter.

If it's a Ditech (FI), don't waste your money on the exhaust, it'll do next to nothing.
If it's not, you'll gain like 6-7mph indicated on the stock CVT setup.

Congrats. Must be some kind of bike buying fever going around here in the south.

I think you made a great choice. The HD200 is one of the best scooters out there IMO.

A little 200 mile ride yesterday up to the Mount Saint Helens area yesterday. My BMW R1200RT was in for service, so I took the Majesty out for the day. Rode with my friend Jeff on his 1600 GTL and kept up fine.

Finally found 'the' scooter hangout in West Michigan. Got to talk to a Burgi' owner; had a great time.
