2 of them went under the seat.

The other 2 in the Aerostitch bag.



I hooked the loops over the bag hook that I added and was on my way home.

Four bags of groceries, and the trip to and from the store was a lot more fun than it would have been in a cage

Yep, I walked right past my Camry and got on the scoot.

Just got home from filling it up. This tank returned 70mpg. A nice 8 mpg improvement. This was also the 1st time I ran premium, which is what Yamaha recommends.

Went to a station about a mile from the house that I was thinking offered Ethanol free premium. I was wrong. They had a special pump for ethanol free but it was only 87 octane. I got it anyway. I will let you know how it turns out.

Slowly getting more miles on the scoot. Now that Little League Baseball is almost over I should get to ride a little more.

It was about a 100 mile round trip. Lots of fun.

I think this was my longest scooter Trip so far.

From Greenville, SC to Seneca, SC and back.

Gotta say the place gave me the creeps

Road my daughter's Ruckus through there a few years ago when she was at Clemson.

It is a little creepy. The town that time forgot after they built Lake Keowee.

1st Farkle

Just put my daughter's broken pink watch between the handlebars.

Pink watch on a blue scooter. Time to start intimidating Harley Riders!

So the Zuma is down and out with a bad fuel pump. Some early build 2009's seem to have bad fuel pumps. Apparently mine is one of them. It is at the Yamaha dealer waiting on a part.

Got the Zuma back from the dealer with a new fuel pump compliments of Yamaha.

Glad to have it back. I have really missed having it around.
