    A feeling of pride rolled over me to see a brave soul and trusty bike(?) ventured deep-ish into the heights of Eastern Middle Tennessee. I wanted to share that feeling by sharing the pride felt by Farmer Hoggett when his pig "Babe" won a prestigious competition. Movie: "Babe" (1995)

    Knowing your trusty steed wasn't a "pig" as some dualsporters will point out, I chose the less obvious image of Farmer Hoggett's satisfaction (in the form of a slightly creepy Gif)

    This being an all-to-lengthy "Well done!" response to your tag-find.
    PS- See the movie, it's entertaining.

    Great to hear--I was going to ask how'd you like 70N through that area, but wasn't sure if one could truly enjoy the curvy twisties on a scooter or not.
    Today I learned!

    Well it is still in the breaking in period but I've had it up north of 70 mph a few times by accident.

    It is a 2018 yamaha xmax if ya want something to Google it's a neat medium size thing.

    Ridden a scooter in a parking lot a couple times, but never had a chance to try it on the road.

    There's something to it tho... every Scooter Dude / Dudette I've passed on the road always had a smile on their face and they always give the biggest waves. Been eyeballing the Honda Ruckus.

    I'm so inspired to fix up my Vespa. It's perfect for tagging in slightly pretentious Italian style.

    Just my luck, I'm stuffing my face in the south end of Maury county and the dang tag gets moved way up north. I may have to dig out my scooter. It's so far in the back of the garage, I keep forgetting that it's back there. image.jpeg

    Haha. I can picture that now. Sounds like a ridiculous amount of fun. I'll have to start looking around to see if one of my buddies has one tucked away.

    There's some neat scooters out there and Honda's X-ADV would almost put one in my garage, so far it's not coming to the states so I'm safe.

    Also like the old MP3's but the weight, complexity and sport bike fuel mileage make it a hard sale, then there's the T-Max, and the Zuma. Zuma would be fun, then again so would a TW200 or a CFR250 Rally.......guess I'll stick with what I got. :dunno

    Happy Thanksgiving :wave

    Do tell! Tmax is no longer sold here and I was considering a Majesty. I'm in for a scooter meet up as long as yall don't go faster than 37 and leave me.

    Never had a Beemer either... but this is how I imagine I'd feel if I had one of those too.[​IMG]
