    WOW I am really impressed. Why do people like you have to critisize others??? We all like to ride, so what we ride or what we would like to have make us a picking point?? Move on and have a nice day.

    It's still 100% scooter. More cornering clearance than the Burgman but less power.

    This and the "girls bike" comment is why the internet is the lowest form of human discourse. If you walked up to someone in a bike shop and made those two comments you very likely would get the snot kicked out of you. At least I would hope.

    It's still 100% scooter. Are you serious, these guys are so smart. Without them I don't believe this thread would go on.

    Hey Duppypog, we are still waiting for your pics. We all want to see your new "Scooter". Joel.

    Let me direct you to Jo Momma. There you can act like a dick and fit right in. We try to keep things civil and constructive up here.

    Don't get your panties twisted in a knot, Joel. You stated that it was "a cross between a bike and a scoot," and I was simply clarifying that it's not in case you hadn't actually seen one in meatspace yet. Living in Japan, I've had plenty of opportunities to ride the Tmax.

    Otoh, the Honda DN-01 that I rode a few weeks back IS a cross between a scoot and a bike :deal

    Be honest, if you cared about how bikes look you wouldn't be riding a 12gs :arg

    Yes I do ride a bike that looks like an unmade bed that has a face only a mother could love.


    But that sure does look like a catfish head on don't you think?

    I like it though, but then I like the T Max too. I'm looking for another of these I had one in orange a few years back.

    What a discrase to an American Icon, there is no similarities whatsoever.

    The Honda DN-01 will be like the Yamaha Morphus, people looking for an automatic bike with a low seat height. Everyone will be wanting a taller windshield for it. Imagine what that will look like with a taller windshield:ear

    Duppypog, we are still waiting on pictures, and another update on your impressions. I am guessing you are racking up the miles. Keep us updated on your new ride. Inquiring minds want to know.

    I do like the TMax. A guy at work had one and loved it. I'm still hopeful that Honda will make the E401 some day soon.
