Wtf

Bruce, I was giving my opinion by saying:

I was figuring they were going to be in the high $6k range or right at $7k tops, just by what the Burgman and the Silverwing are priced at, but $8grand I don't know.


Who the hell said it should be priced at Honda Reflex price?????????

Doesnt matter anyway, I put a deposit on one today. Shopped around looking for the best price. Should be here end of July or 1st of August. Joel.

I will post pictures, when I get a chance to take some. I have about 500 kms on it now, and it is better then what I hoped for. It is very stable on the highway and in cross winds. It clips along with no vibrations and or shuttering even at high speed. I can ride at 120 kph with no problem. As a matter of fact I had to pass a car at this speed so I opened it up for a very short time. It climbed to 160kph and was still pulling when I let off. Unfriken believable. Millage so far seems to be in the 60 mpg (Imp gal) in mixed riding. Low speed handling and ride comfort is again very good. My only complaint is they say a full face helmet fits under the seat, but my Icon will not fit?? It does hold lots of stuff though and the two glove boxes work very well (be nice if they locked). It sure gets alot of looks, and even the motorcycle guys wave at me (go figure). I am very very happy with this bike.

What's the mileage for Valve adjust? My 2007 Majesty 400 is every 26,600 miles (42,000 km).

The 2009 Yamaha Scooters are on their website.

The big news is that the Tmax 500 is there. Says available July 2008.
Why?

It's a girls bicycle.

WOW I am really impressed. Why do people like you have to critisize others??? We all like to ride, so what we ride or what we would like to have make us a picking point?? Move on and have a nice day.

It's still 100% scooter. More cornering clearance than the Burgman but less power.

This and the "girls bike" comment is why the internet is the lowest form of human discourse. If you walked up to someone in a bike shop and made those two comments you very likely would get the snot kicked out of you. At least I would hope.

It's still 100% scooter. Are you serious, these guys are so smart. Without them I don't believe this thread would go on.

Hey Duppypog, we are still waiting for your pics. We all want to see your new "Scooter". Joel.

Let me direct you to Jo Momma. There you can act like a dick and fit right in. We try to keep things civil and constructive up here.
