This forum is a bit of a rarity in the two wheel world... and a big part of what I enjoy here. I have had my eyes opened recently, and agree that smaller just might be better - depending on the usage. I thought my V-Strom was "a little bike" until we bought these scooters. Glory be - I have seen the light! (cue the music, get ready to pass the plate) You demon of heavy displacement be gone! Let the light of the lightweights shine in!! Can I get a witness?
