It's a good thing he stopped you, otherwise you'd be doing 100 mph wheelies and mile-long burnouts on it.

It's for your own safety.

The checkout lady asked me how I planned on hauling a 50lb bag of cement on my motorcycle....I promptly corrected her and told her it was a scooter.

Haul it!

Howdy,

SaltyDog, you are my hero! I haul 15 lb. bags of dog food on my Honda Sh150i, but your feat is more impressive.

Who would like a REAL rack for the Zuma 125????

While goofing around today prior to installing a Turbo City Borrego rack on my WR250R I decided to test fit it onto the Zuma....
It looked great and super useful. I messaged turbocity tom (adv name) about him making them and waiting to hear back.

the one I made to fit the stock rack works great so far, although I like the tube feel of that one!

My only concern would be loading it up and stressing the joint. Mind you they do this sort of thing so I am sure it is fine

Been a while, the plush suspension of the scoot has not be too good for my Kidney issue I am having these days, but today I thought I could manage so here goes.

lets go!


New for this trip the throttle rocker!


it did make a difference once at cruising speed!

I did not learn my lesson, but this should be within the limits?


ah some open road "pin" (had not reached peek velocity yet)



Find the weirdest stuff on the way to work!


Scooter people type of party, they even bought the "good" stuff


Checking out a new camp spot


This one looked better, old nokia building


Last bit of rubber burn then into work. Hey they can't all be lengthy!

FIN
