    Awesome...Wheelnerds is by favorite bike podcast; must have been sleeping when they read your letter. Probably takes a podcast junkie like me to make that connection. ;-) Oh, and scooter fan of course...would love one in the garage if the boss would let me have 2 bikes in the garage.

    I have been mentioned a few times on Wheelnerds.

    On November 4th and 10th they had a good laugh at my expense. Remember "It Blue", that was me.:eek1

    On August 24th they made fun of my Adventure Biscuit photo submission.

    On July 29th they made fun of me tubing down the river after I saw some Adventure Kayakers.

    Can the body work be swapped for blue pieces?I found that black one over at G'ville Powersports and almost considered asking how much it was.I'd probably die from sticker shock.

    Yes, the panels can be removed and switched. There are also sticker kits available that will allow you to completely change the look of the Zuma.

    I have read up on that one on the Zuma forums.I much prefer the stock look of your blue bandit. :lol3 Maybe a few performance upgrades but nothing wild like that.

    Had to go into work this morning but jumped on the scoot as soon as I was done and headed to my daughter's swim meet.

    Nice 50 mile round trip on some fairly fun roads.

    I haven't even got the drz tagged yet and you have sold me on picking up a scooter. There's a few on my local craigslist for less then $1000 so their will be no harm in picking up another ride.

    Nothing very exciting today. Rode the Zuma to the grocery store. Then over to the movie theater to get tickets to see The Hunger Games.
