I know the good (almost all of them are good) ways around that intersection. Just an extension of my back yard.

I ended up going down Prison Camp Rd. And then down to Inman.

At the VFW in Chesnee, SC.

It can be seen on Google maps. Go to an aerial of Chesnee, SC and scroll down a little to what is obviously a school. Across the street at about 7 o'clock you will see it if you are looking north and the school is at 3 o'clock.

Well the Zuma is gone. I sold it to a family from Georgia that is going to take it with them in their motor home.

They also picked up a 2009 Zuma 50 for their 15 year old son to ride.

That's kinda sad. I'm keeping the Zuma, there are thousands of miles of local roads to ride it on, but I may be getting rid of my Vino 125 for something a bit larger that will be legal on the interstates. I don't plan to spend much time there, but there are a lot of places I could legally go that I can't with a 125, just by being able to take the interstate for a few miles.

I know that I am going to miss it but just can't justify 2 bikes right now.

I think the next scooter will be at least a 250.

Did you at least point them in the direction of this forum and hopefully this thread?

As a matter of fact I did. I sent them the link while we were discussing the sale. I wanted them to know everything about the scooter.

Just got my Zuma in december, I have enjoyed your blog, it helped me decide to purchase one.

Thanks, I now have 715 miles on it and really enjoy the ride.

I have 5 bikes right now, a cruiser, a dual sport, and 3 scooters. Just recently sold a Goldwing.

I also want a larger scooter, something freeway legal, but that still looks like what I think a scooter should look like, small with small wheels. Not much to choose from. Sure wish Honda still made the old Elite 250. A little boxy, but nice and short with small wheels.

I have too much invested in my 2012 Zuma 125 to let it go. I bought it new, then added the windshield, the highway pegs/bar, a Shad rack, and a Shad trunk. I have just a little over 3000 miles on it now.

I know what you must have been feeling, seeing the Zuma leave on the trailer. It served you well and provided many pleasant memories. Sort of like losing a good pal. This was a fun blog to follow. The urge to get a Zuma 125 came on more than once.
So, what adventures will the Versys be taking you on?

CB my friend! you sold her!!! well YOU had a good run together and someone else will be having on her.

You sold her, and I am thinking about getting one. There is only 1 real other option vs the zuma down here, and it is a Honda Cruising 125 cc, it is not FI, but it is about $1,000 usd cheaper. Maybe in December if all feels good I will be getting one if they let me do a test drive, and if they are smart they will since I already did a purchase there and I continue to service my Beat at the dealer, but test drives are non existing here so I will try to give them the speach (and it will be true) "I want to test drive, and if I like it I will buy it today" and lets see how that goes...

So, where are you going with that versys? more mods on the making?

cheers!!!
