The 2 wheels in the back look like they are pretty close together. Thatd' make it pretty hard on the turns.

Something <50cc (Ruckus? C3?)
I already have a couple duals and riding this around will make them seem more powerful :}

Thumb Next ride? TMAX

I took a chance and bought the TMAX. This thing is awesome! I ride with my wife most of the time 313 mile so far and barely notice her on the back. Trying to break it in properly although I must admit to goosing it up to 5500RPMs for very short bursts.
Have fun with the whole experience,

Great question, I predict this will be a very popular thread.


I have an 82 hond passport and an 87
spacy 250
I would like my next bike to be a Symba or a sym hd200. Maybe a maddass 125.
But it will probably be another POS craigslist whore bike that I ride the crap out of and never look back on.

86 elite 250 . I wanted an helix but it was like pulling hens teeth to find one were I live at the price I wanted. The onlly one I found was for 3 grand and that was the same year as my elite. I ll wait for a little and find that helix sooner or latter.

Current - Vespa GTS 300 and Honda SH300.

Future - Not sure. Hope Honda come out with something to rival the TMax.

Might just trade both of the above.

Not sure..Maybe a Tmax, Silverwing, or Burgman. If not that, then I might keep my current ride and add something like a Helix.

Actually, my next bike (projects notwithstanding) may be a used Goldwing. I like the idea of touring, but don't want to plunk down $25000 for a new Goldwing, so a used one is an appealing option...
