That's a proper looking motorcycle….. lightweight, simple, practical transport. Good use of modern technology, without going overboard.

Today I rode my wife's scooter to work.

It's a Suzuki Viva 110cc from 2006.

I replaced every bearing in the chassis, rebuilt the front forks fully, gave it a new swingarm, adjusted the valves, replaced the brake master cylinder for the front and put in a new starter motor, new pads for the front and new shoes for the rear - for a parts cost of around $160.

Drives like a champ, pulls around 125km/ph with 50km per liter of gas.



Looks the same as above but with decals on the side. Ultra reliable little thing.

My 990. It was cold. Rode to one dealer to get a new Gerbings jacket liner because my old one burned me. Blistering burn! After 2 years! Was made in China. Had to ride to dealer #2 for correct size. New Gerbings are made in USA. Comfy ride home. Temps today 34-43 degrees F.

Rode the 92 concours to restock my coffee supply, about 2 hours round trip. Temp was in the high 20s when I left. Good coffee from the Chestnut Hill Coffee company, totally worth it, plus I had a nice ride!

Rode my BMW F800R to work today at -5 degrees celsius (23F), heated grips rock will ride home later at similar temps... But as long as the roads are clear, I'll ride on :)

But I do had problems getting the lock to work this morning, the thing froze! But WD40 was there to help ^^ It just is too moist around here, everything is covered in frost...

No snow yet? Or do you brave the white stuff with the moto?
