    Both would be very high on the list if I was shopping right now.

    Who knows what will be available in 2-3 years. I am sure by then I will be ready for something else.

    If I could get Rugby to hook me up with a job where he works I could afford a new bike even sooner.:wink:

    I had my Vino up past 65 riding about 3 miles downhill, including a couple of sharp curves. It handled like it was on rails. The Stella on the other hand starts to feel a little shaky at 55. Large scooters like the Burgmans have relatively small wheels for their size. I think the problem with the Stella is that it does not have enough rake in the front end, but it could be something else.

    I would not likely be riding any faster that 65 anyway, even if the speed limit was 75. I would stay in the right lane, put something bright on the back of the scooter to make it visible, and watch my mirrors a lot.

    I saw someone riding a Zuma 125 today. Kind of made me miss mine.

    I have a set of those Givi bags but no mounts - do you remember the Givi part number or is that someone else mounting system?

    Thanks,

    Mounts are specific to the bike.

    Try Twisted Throttle. Put in your bike and it will tell you what mount that you need.

    I have a white 2012. It was a leftover model, and I got it OTD for well under MSRP. Last one the dealer had, and they wanted rid of it. At first I liked the white, but now I'm planning to change the panels to either matte black, or the new 2014 orange.

    Yes, it is on Yamaha's web site, as a 2014 model. I checked the price of the panels (there are only 3) for the 2012 model at cheapcycleparts.com and they are not bad at all. Either the matte black or orange would give it a whole new look.
