08 Symba

I just bought this New 08 Symba. It had 8 miles on it and I picked it up for $1500 from a dealer thats quiting the business. It was a demo that was brought over for the introduction of the Symba for the US. There are a few differences on this one that don't meet the DOT requirements like our 2010 Symba. There's no engine kill switch on the throttle control handle, there is an off and on switch for the headlight, and chrome turn signals without the long stalks on them. Sweet bike!!

Vespa made from Wood!

Stumbled across this link. A real, running Vespa hand built from hardwood! I like working with wood, but this incredible labor of love is something made by an amazing craftsman. All I can see is I'm speechless.

How come every time I see one of those the title song from that old cartoon show 'Simba the White Lion' pops into my head?

Death Ride

Took the PCX out for a bit today. I found some aptly named cemeteries.









I really got a kick out of this one.

grave condition

Graves Cemetery - I hear that place is so popular that people are dying to get in there. Me personally, I wouldn't be caught dead in a place like that.

150cc's of fun. This has replaced the cage for the work commute except for the foul weather days.

my New Swing

Hey y'all, just wanted to drop in and show off my new '08 Silver Wing. It is bone stock but moving from my Yager, it is a beast. I think my first upgrades will be the front spring upgrade and a Givi backrest for the missus. I'm also going to look into getting the local custom shop to fab up floorboards for her too.

Yep! I think that smile says it all! Congrats!
