    This is a truly great looking scooter. I love all the work you've done on it and it looks very sleek.
    I haven't posted on here for a long time, but I see that Tacoma is still spreading his same old ca-ca. I put him on the "ignore" list long ago. :rofl

    Oh ok, so the carbon on the swing arms are only a carbon protection covering then. I thought for a second that the swing arms were completely made out of carbon. Looks great nevertheless.

    Hey linusje- now wondering if you're going spring for an enclosed trailer, just to transport your blinged-out TMax from place to place?

    [​IMG]

    Here's a sharp-looking transporter; a flame-finished MAG enclosed motorcycle trailer. One can even get Camper/Sleeper options for these trailers. :clap

    another impressive transporter- the Aero Pod 1 marketed by Adventure Sports Products Midwest.

    Ok, so you have a great looking new T-max with updates. The question is how does it ride, run compared to the old T-max??? How is the acceleration compared to the last T-max??
