    Hi all!

    I am joining the discussion here with some pics of my scooters past and present.

    My first scooter was a Yamaha YP Majesty 125. I went all over the place on this thing, taking photos wherever i went.

    ... Taken at Matlock Bath, just before this scooter died a horrific death from being ridden too far and too hard, too often!

    After this scooter, i had a Honda Innova. I think this was the most fun to ride, but not up to the same long distances as the Yamaha so not as good for exploring and taking photographs, and having adventures :)

    ... This scooter performed well though, having a fuel injected engine. It was such fun to ride, and based on the old "Pig 90" frame. It was always such fun leaving people standing at the lights, wondering how something that looked like a pizza bike could accellerate better than their cage :)

    Currently this bike is in pieces and needs an engine rebuild. I do not have the mechanical skills to do this, but i think maybe some time soon i shall learn what i need to get it done and sell it.

    Currently i ride a Peugeot Tweet RS125. So far i've not been anywhere too distant on it, due to the weather being dismal and not having much time to myself any more, however i am planning a day trip which may be my longest journey by 125cc scooter yet -- stay tuned in the trip planning section as i reveal all!

    I think she was blinking because she ate a bug. That's the face she always gives me after she eats a bug off the sidewalk. :rofl

    This is my 2010 Adly bullseye 50. i dont think i have really seen another one on here yet but haven't been looking too hard.
    these were taken the day that i got the bike since then i have done a little bit of work to it. i have cut down the back mud guard so that is ends right below the license plate. i took off the back rack. put some mini clubmans on (this lead to adding flush mount turn signals where the reflector is located in second pic.) also i have a polini 70 kit on it. the bike is a nice little 2stroke. i could do about 53 when it was bone stock. now i can get up to about 56 or so, but the acceleration is so much better. its been in the shop for a while though. at the beginning of the summer i was hit by a car that didnt see me in an intersection. my whole front end is bent out of shape. ive got a new triple assembly on the way along with some NCY front forks. ill post more pics when i get it back but this thing sure is a blast

    Here I am dreaming of my first tour and BAM here is a picture of my bike in the woods.

    By the way, I have two sets of saddle bags (slightly smaller than yours) and they work well together so total of 4 compartments and the 37 litter top case. bike = same color, same year and basically same price.

    I think you're out of lean angle. Next time you'll have to bring some knee-sliders, and hang off that thing.
    Great pictures, thanks for sharing.

    I know that blue one, that's the guy who taught me how to shift. I don't think he knows it yet though, haha. When I bought my Stella I searched all sorts of videos on YouTube for one that showed the actual shifting, and he had the best one. I watched it over and over.
