Thumb Just got a Majesty!

A far cry from the Riva 125 I used to have...

Looks great!

I've been on the fence whether to go for a Nexus 500 or the Majesty.
Could you write up your impressions after a few miles?

Have fun :)

That windscreen looks like it'll do the job. Great color. Looking forward to your riding impressions.

Thanks guys!
The windscreen is a Givi - still kind of on the fence about it - almost blocks too much air (in hot weather at least), and a little far up in the line of sight for my liking. It didn't come with the stock one (although I know they are supposed to buffet really bad). I do wish I had a little more room to slide back on the seat. It's already at the rear-most position. I'm only 5'9". This bike must be really cramped for taller riders.

The seller lives about 60 miles from me so I rode it home on I-29 at 80 mph indicated - amazingly smooth, quiet ride.

Don't be surprised if you start ignoring your Bonneville and KLR. Seems to happen pretty regularly. Especially with a scooter as highway capable as yours. I haven't even started my BMW in the couple weeks since I picked up my HD200.

You will enjoy it! A Majesty was my first modern scooter and the "gateway" to leaving MC's for the twist and go lifestyle.

The stock windscreen on my SWing was absolutely awful. I replaced it with a Givi AirFlow. Excellent winscreen...good air flow, no buffeting and manually adjustable for height. I don't know if they make one for the Majesty, but it would be worth finding out...

Welcome to the club of the highly enlightened.

The Yamaha has the benefit of valve adjustment inspection intervals of 26,000 miles!

Love the Majesty

I bought my Majesty last summer and have loved every second on it. Hope you do as well. I have done several 300 mile days on it, and could have easily (or close to easily) done more it's so comfy. I also wish the seat could go back a little farther (and I'm shorter than you) but being able to adjust on the floor boards helps a lot.

Do any of you know for sure if the 2005-2007 are all the same? I have a line on a 2005 service manual, want to know if it applies to my '07.

I had a 2009 Majesty (upgraded to a 2009 TMax in 2012 )

I believe the 2005-2007 are identical. Yamaha made the change for the 2008 model year.

You can get more leg room by removing the bolster (back rest), or by reshaping it. Check out the Majesty USA forum for instructions.
