Looks like the local fire department wasn't up on their inspections/
Oh, that's not good... why, after having rebuilt from one fire, did they not make sure they had a sprinkler system? (AKA, were up to code.)

I got my information from the Sacramento SYM dealer, first hand conversation. I think Roose is local to me so it may be the same person.

I know this thread is old but I just wanted to let you guys know that South Sound Honda in Olympia WA has a warehouse packed with Sym scoots that they are selling at cost, or near cost.

America's Motorsports in Madision Tn has 2009 Fiddle 11 for $1398. They have them listed under pre-owned but they are 2009 new models. I looked at them a couple of month ago. At that time they had several. I think they have sold a few of them.

That's a great price for a Fiddle 11.

I test rode a lightly used (~1000 miles) Fiddle II 125 last week. I wanted to find a reason to buy it, but, sadly, I was really unimpressed. It looks nice and the seat and under storage are bigger than many. But it was a dog. It had the acceleration of 50cc. The Buddy 125 was much peppier.

I hear they lively up nicely with a set of rollers, but I was really impressed with the fit & finish on the one I saw in person.

Yeah, thats why I didn't buy one. Its slow for a 125cc. Now the build quality and fit and finish is top notch. It is a good looking scooter.
