    The Honda introduced back at the 2005 show was a 900cc , now it's a 750 ?
    I guess it doesn't really matter since Honda will never build it any way :D .
    If any thing Honda will at least the way they are acting , will be getting out of the
    scooter business ?

    Honda sells this 700 cc motorcycle looking scooter call Integra everywhere but in North America.

    It has one very un-scooter-like attribute that it shares with the Aprilia/Gilera GP800 - namely an exposed, oily, messy rear chain.

    Why could Honda not design an enclosure for it? Answer:- cost and parts commonality with its brethren NC700S & X machines.
    Still, one can always fit an automatic chain oiler for a modest sum.

    ,,,,as an owner of a Yamaha Tmax I feel good that my $5495 Tmax can match and in some ways out-perform the maxi scooters that cost twice as much, I say speaking for myself and maybe other Tmax Owners we took a crap-shoot when buying our Tmax and won. Just because any motorcycle or scooter costs more doesn't mean its better. I got tired and got broke buying a new motorcycle every year that never pleased me,, I took a chance, a big chance buying the Tmax and I have finally found what I want!
    I used to be guilty of buying and owning a bike just to show it off and impress everybody except myself, I hated riding it but it looks good. My Tmax is the total oppisite of that, it looks bad, everybody laughs and makes fun of it,,,, but I love and enjoy riding it.
    I understand you people don't like me, but all I care about is pleasing myself, I understand you other brand maxi scooter owners are threatened by my Tmax and the only way I can understand WHY you are threatened by the Tmax is you feel in some way the Tmax is better than the scooter you own. I understand that everybody always thinks what they own is the best. I was never prepared for all the cut downs and attacks my Tmax gets from other scooter owners, so if I sound rude and insulting, you people made me that way, I am not going to stand there and not fight back, its obvious you people are jealous of the Tmax and you wished you owned one than what you own now.

    This is the scooter thread, no one here is making fun of you for it. That's what those other subforums are for. And I love my TMAX too. When people on other motorcycles give you strange look at a light then just be sure the zoom past them with one hand when the light turns green. :D

    That said my TMAX won't last forever and I'm not really the handy type, other than changing oil. I think in a couple of years I'll take a look at the BMW, the new TMAX and whatever else makes it's way over to the US.

    It wasn't the T max they didn't want in their club, it was the troll.

    Hi Tacoma,

    My suggestion is that you go back to them and ask whether they would let you ride with the club if you rode a Burgman. At the moment I think they are scared of you and how fast you can ride that T-Max. :wink:

    I don't think the club members' board was scared of the TMAX, the board was mostly scared of what some of its club members will do to this troll if they get a chance to hear his B.S. :bash

    I've got a Tmax. No one has made fun of me. Most motorcyclists wave when we encounter each other on the roads and I get asked about it in parking lots all the time.

    Naw...they'd hate him MORE.

    Right now, they're terrified of his T-MAX. If he gets a Boogerman, they'll think he's a pu$$y - and not want him in anyway, for other reasons.

    And if he got a Harley like them...they'd not want him in because he'd OUT-COOL the rest of them.

    It's a bummer, when you're in a class by yourself...hey, dude?

    I would be the perfect member of a scooter club cause I believe I know all the local and long distance exciting places to ride at. There is this road in north central Pennsylvania called "Roller Coaster Road", its the greatest thrill ride on a motorcycle or scooter, the road is like an extreme roller coaster track,,, in the past few years the residents that live near there were sick and tired of all the motorcycles there, since then they changed the name of that road ,, but I still know where its at, then they have a road called "gravity hill" thats a section of road where it looks like you're going up hill, but ur really going down, your bike seems to float up hill, that was shut down too and am the only one that knows where its at! I know a backwoods bar that makes homemade beer and moonshine, its an illegal bar but if you can down those drinks without falling on the floor then you get respect. I could have offered them an exciting place to go, something to remember,,, its no fun going there alone. They don't want me in their club, then thats their loss!
