    I took one look at this and was all like, "that's badass"! My wife took one look at this and was all like "That looks like a claymation character for a kids TV show"!

    Where can I find out more information on the 1963 chrome limited edition Trail 55? I just bought one in very rough shape and would like to know more about it. I will probably be listing it on ebay soon if anyone is interested. Located on the Washington coast near Astoria. Any help would be appreciated.

    My wife and I rode around Rome for three days on a Piaggio MP3 250 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I grew up in Italy and go back to ride with my childhood buddy when I rent a motorcycle, usually a BMW for some reason, for cross country rides together he and I. Last year my wife and I wanted a few days alone together exploring Rome and the MP3 was just the ticket.

    It was excellent on the rouigh cobble streets and crossing tram (streetcar) rail lines. It enabled me to keep up with the local maniacs riding the same streets on two wobbly wheels. I am not a fan of the complex technology of the MP3 as a daily rider for myself but I can see why this machine is so popular in crowded urban areas of Europe.

    We took it out into the countryside and rode the Alban Hills (Castelgandolfo area) and buzzed out to Ostia Antica the old Roman port city. It kept up fine with main road traffic at 70 plus mph (110 kph) with speed to spare even two up.


    [​IMG]

    However we didn't ride it on original Roman roads though I'm sure it would have done fine...



    [​IMG]


    It was excellent for getting around the alleys of Trastevere at night, with powerful headlights and it was easy to park on rough streets by simply locking the wheels. Even sideways on slopes! I had to be careful unlocking it!

    [​IMG]

    I did not lock the wheels at traffic lights because I found the practice rather off putting and contented myself with putting my feet down, in conventional style.


    [​IMG]

    And it was as easy to ride splitting traffic as any two wheeled scooter. Great fun!

    I know the area well. Other than updating the gas pump 40 years ago, that store has hardly changed.

    At the WW2 Reenactment days at Jefferson Barracks County Park in St Louis Mo.

    My Wife and I rode 2 up about 75 miles that day. Got caught in light hail and a torrential downpour thunderstorm. Had to hide out in another park under a pavilion. It was a great day!

    And yes the China scoot is still pluggen along happy as hell.

    It seems like a pretty cool little store. I love finding places like that. Id never run that stretch of road before heading out of,Raymond toward Northwood.

    Hello All, I'm new to these parts. Been riding a Honda Met for the past year but last night I updated to this beautiful SYM HD200 and figured I would join the forum.

    Really nice scooter. Pretty much bullet proof and quick for its size. I like the color as well.

    We had it tilted up and hung her back pack over it so we didn't have to carry it around.
