Bit the bullet, bought a Honda

Because the good folks at Yamaha have more sense than to make purple scooters, and it is my youngest daughter's favorite color, I bought a 1990-something Honda Elite 50SR in a truly horrific purple color that she loves. It has less than 500 miles on it, and the previous owner was a likker sickle rider who parked it when he got his license back. The compression is good, it is complete, and there seems to be a lot of aftermarket performance options available to make it at least keep up with the Vino.

At least it's a 2 stroke.
