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.

Gymkhana. I was the only one there on a scooter so they put me in the cruiser class, which I won
