One of the perks of an old scooter. After having a spare all these years (1971-now) I would find it hard to travel without one.

Nice! Looks like a long distance beast, how long have you had it? how is it for long journeys? Is it comfortable and reliable? Wouldn't mind one of these

I've done over 10k miles on my Downtown 300i in 7-8 months, touring all
over the place.

The XC500 is more comforable, a bit faster (on open roads, acceleration is
actually faster on the DT300), and keeps it's line better at high speeds.

So yeah, it's a long distance beast.

It's actually a bit "heavy" around town, the DT300 is a lot better there.

Reliability?
It's a Kymco.
