I want a Yamaha Morphous for short rides, but will keep my ST1300A for touring.

Currently riding a Genuine Buddy 125. The GF managed to get ahold of a project bike for free: a '91 Honda Nighthawk 750. The idea is to learn some wrenching together and get that thing running! In exchange, I'm going to teach her how to ride the Buddy.

Once it's running, if she lets me have the Nighthawk (too tall for her) I MIGHT let her have the spare key to the scooter!

If you're that interested, be patient; you'll be glad you waited. I essentially traded a Pacific Coast for mine and as far as I'm concerned, I got more for less.

I had two 1990 PC800's over the years and people use to call them scooters. Very good bike with good handling, adequate performance and decent storage. Maybe Honda should bring them back and call them scooters.

hey wanna,
There is a 1989 PC800 on the Asheville Craigslist (24k miles) that a guy is trying to give away for $2100. Sounds like it is in good condition.

Just picked up my next ride today. An 06 Sachs MadAss with a 110cc Lifan motor. Very cool bike. One of those CraigsList deals for $1500 with 412 miles on it.

Well, I just really joined the scooter group. My wife had a 87 Helix which I almost never rode. She decided to give up riding and become a passenger so she talked me into trading the Helix on a 09 Burgman 650 Executive.

We traded on the 27th. Have a little over 700 miles on it and finished the first service. Interesting ride and quite quick.

So I guess my next ride (or spare is the Burgman)

My son inherited my Keeway Flash from me last month.

Next: Maybe a Qlink Matador, Keeway Outlook, or a Qlink XF 200

I test rode a like new 06 Burgman 400 yesterday. Its a really good deal for $3500 with 814 miles on it. We rode it two up and I wasn't really impressed with the performance compared to my People 250. Just not my cup of tea with its low lounge seating. Its a smoking great deal in Roseburg Oregon if anyone is interested.

little scoot: Ruckus

big scoot: T-max, MP3 500 or Burgman 650. I was going to go with a big tourer like a Gold Wing for knocking out the big slab miles...but I'm hooked on the scoots now.

motorcycle: Sportster 883R project...(?) that changes daily, if not by the hour

Of course, I have zero money to spend so this is purely hypothetical...

Next up: Triumph Scrambler. Once that's in the garage, then I'll sell the Kymco and pick up either a Rattler 110 ( I love the smell of 2 strokes in the morning) or a 50cc (probably a Zuma) for the Mrs.
