Reminds me of my youth. I found a ratty ol' MGA that I bought for $100 (yes, it ran). I was driving it during a snow storm and stopped to put some gas in it. The guy in the gas station said, "You must be the dumbest guy I know, driving a car like that in the snow."

No sooner had he gotten the words out of his mouth when two guys on dirt bikes pulled up...

"Nope, I was wrong."

Yeah I did get a lot of double takes , and the only problem I had at 7 degrees is a little fogging on my helmet lens when I was at a red light .
I pretty much have this cold weather riding licked with all my new gear , and that is with no electrical garments . I also want to purchase a complete set of heated garments but they are pretty much out of stock until fall .

Well, I bought it in December and rode it 2 blocks, hauled it home, rode it another 2 blocks, and then stuffed it in my kitchen to work on it all winter. (when I felt like it)

2005 Kymco People 50, a little 2 smoker with a salvage title I picked up cheap.

Today I did the shakedown run and rode to work. It'd been in my kitchen until 7am this morning, I rode the 9 miles to work, with full intentions of walking if needed.

But, actually it went great, running an easy 40mph and even up to 45mph when a little down hill. I replaced a few odds and ends this winter, and put the topbox on it for a place to throw lunch/gallon of milk/ helmet..

As luck would have it, I got to score a photo tag on the way to work, with a photo needed of your bike in front of an Irish Pub. I then rode the rest of the way to work.. Yeah, that's ice I'm parked between..





Fun little scooter, and the big wheels make for a pretty solid ride.. I already am wondering how far from home I'll be riding it??? With a Helix and a Majesty in the garage, there's no REASON to wander too far with a 50, but one never knows..

The Joker did not make it to the states.

The wheels, though. The Aprilia had the multi-spoke. The Joker had the dished aluminum.

Just make global regulations and give us access to all of the models please!
