    2 of them went under the seat.

    The other 2 in the Aerostitch bag.

    I hooked the loops over the bag hook that I added and was on my way home.

    Four bags of groceries, and the trip to and from the store was a lot more fun than it would have been in a cage:ricky

    Just got home from filling it up. This tank returned 70mpg. A nice 8 mpg improvement. This was also the 1st time I ran premium, which is what Yamaha recommends.

    Went to a station about a mile from the house that I was thinking offered Ethanol free premium. I was wrong. They had a special pump for ethanol free but it was only 87 octane. I got it anyway. I will let you know how it turns out.

    Slowly getting more miles on the scoot. Now that Little League Baseball is almost over I should get to ride a little more.

    It was about a 100 mile round trip. Lots of fun. :evil

    I think this was my longest scooter Trip so far.

    From Greenville, SC to Seneca, SC and back.

    It is a little creepy. The town that time forgot after they built Lake Keowee.

    Just put my daughter's broken pink watch between the handlebars.

    Pink watch on a blue scooter. Time to start intimidating Harley Riders!

    So the Zuma is down and out with a bad fuel pump. Some early build 2009's seem to have bad fuel pumps. Apparently mine is one of them. It is at the Yamaha dealer waiting on a part.

    Got the Zuma back from the dealer with a new fuel pump compliments of Yamaha.

    Glad to have it back. I have really missed having it around.

    Got some hiway pegs installed tonight. I bought them from a guy on Zumaforums that makes them. This allows me to stretch my legs way out. A lot more comfortable having the option to move my feet around.
