    I've Had my new Kymco Super 8 150 for a few weeks now so I thought it was time for a ride report. It has been started here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=647784

    So far it has been a lot of fun although unusuelly cold weather (for Alabama) has kept me from riding as much as I would have liked.

    I've put nearly 1000 miles on my super 8 so I thought it was time for an update.

    No problems so far except one little bolt cover rubber thingy on the floorboard that fell off. It should be covered under warranty but I haven't bothered to check.

    I changed the engine and final drive oil at 165 miles. Changed the engine oil again at 500 miles. Next oil change I will be installing magnetic drain plugs.

    I've been getting between 66 and 92 MPG. Average has been around 75.

    Just about all the other riders, including Harley riders, wave back at me.

    I've been having a blast. More details and lots of pics are in my ride report here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=647784
