I'll try to upload a pic here. This will show the tinted windscreen and the large rear box

If anyone wants more specific pics, let me know. This was just a quick one I took w/ my cell phone. I'm going to try to take a pic of the rear cargo box with my big a$$ helmet in there. I've got an Icon XXL helmet from my motorcycling days that fits in there just fine.

Here is a link from a guy that bought his about 2 years ago, along with all of the mods he and others have done. Be prepared, because it is 8 pages on in posts on Sootdawg scooter forum.

My wife has a dark blue 2008 HD200, and it is a great scooter. I ride it using every excuse in the book, and it's a blast to ride. 55-60-65 mph on the freeway is no problem for the HD. Your 2008 has drum rear brakes, while the newer ones have disk rears.

Enjoy your new SYM.

Understatement?

My 2008 HD200 is all stock except for Jeff's kick stand mod and the scooter is staying that way.
It's a great scooter for getting around town.

Thanks...I already had that thread saved so I can refer back to it on occasion, as well as his website showing more detailed write-ups on the installs. I'm probably going to keep mine pretty stock, but might do some sort of speaker/amp install like he did. I thought about reading more on how he fixed the side stand, but I always put mine up on the center stand, so don't really know if it's worth my time to do that or not...
