I bought my first and only scooter 13 months ago. A lightly used Kymco Agility 125. I paid $1100. Best $1100 I have ever spent...

Good to see you back and still scooting Kenny.
(Did you ever move forward with that project you were debating?)

Hi GoGo. Still working on it. Several financial and personal hurdles (recent divorce) to overcome. Still love riding and see such obvious demand in my area...
Funny thing. I have a page on FB called "Naperville Scooters". I get calls looking for bikes and servicing every week...
Thanks!
Ken

Hi Dude. It was on when I bought it. Not even sure the brand, but will check tomorrow. I have never ridden without it, so don't know how it compares riding without it. Fits the size of the bike nicely, so I imagine it helps a lot...

Hi again Dude. It is a Puig windshield. Looks to attach easily to the mirrors...

Hey KennyT- glad you're back. I saw your FB page- wondered if you were moving forward with it- was going to try and find it when I'm up in Naperville in a couple weeks for my niece's wedding, so will try that on a later trip!

Your scooter looks great- wonderful time of year to be riding!

The Agility 125 is a great buy. I can envision how much more refined they would look with more painted panels, rather than the acres of the black, edm finished plastic. I think Kymco missed the mark there; a higher level could support the bump in the MSRP.

Go find some like minded individuals and repeat yourself to your heart's content. I don't know where those like minded individuals are, but I certainly know where they aren't.
All I get from Jerry's posts is that he hates anything that actually works and that is not a Vulcan 750, which is every bit of an appliance, but to him it is the measuring stick for any kind of motorcycle.

Jerry's problem is he thinks he has a new audience each time he post.
Thus, tube tires, center stand, no efi, too much money, crotch rocket, etc.

I tend to subscribe to the policy of: don't diss a man's wife, his dog, or his truck. He picked what he likes, and shouldn't have to defend any of that, unless you are buying it for him.

So, buy a Kymco... or a Vespa... or a Honda... or whatever appeals to you. If you buy a scoot you think is ugly, you have only yourself to blame. If someone else's opinion makes you change your mind and now you think your scoot is ugly, you are too easily influenced by others. Kidding aside, that doesn't happen here, so saying, "such and such has too much plastic" or "that scoot can't get out of its own way" or other similar stuff just sounds like junior high postering.

And, Jerry, really, man, I keep defending your right to say dumb shit, but to talk about a Taiwan scoot not having style and then say you are considering a Fiat 500?? One word, my friend: credibility. Even JLo couldn't make that Fiat look sexy. Then, tell us your two stroke, unreliable Stella has "personality"??? That's like saying, "I want to introduce to you a friend of my girlfriend - she has a great personality."

No need to fear 4 doors. If you can overlook the all-the-way-to-the-bone ugly (way more than skin-deep) of a Maverick, you can expand your 2-door romance to get way more selection and just not use the other two doors!

Back to the scoots: I was amazed at all the different choices when we first considered scooters less than a year ago. I guess we need to have some biases to start wading through all the options. There is a reason ice cream shops don't have just vanilla. Get the flavor that you like, and don't get all twisted about what other people think.

But, seriously... a Fiat 500??

Captain Jim (Oh, and I have a cat, not a dog)
I'd actually like to own a old school Cinquecentro with the 16 hp two cylinder 500 cc engine.
