That Suzuki SW1 has a very cool retro vibe going for it.
But I'd have trouble claiming it's a scooter with chain drive, no step through upper frame mounted gas tank, etc.
Or do ya'll disagree?
I have a picture of that bike from about 16 years ago. The fuel tank is a storage space like the Goldwing. But yeah, the word scooter is getting seriously stretched all over. The big long boats coming out hardly scoot. They are motorcycles with a lot of formed plastic and automatic transmissions, and fuel tanks under the seat. Very close to being Goldwings.
Beautiful day for a country ride here in west central FL. My wife and I did a couple hundred miles exploring today.
12/31 Had to get in one last ride...
Happy New Year All. Here's a photo of my '12 Vespa 300S that I picked up this past spring. It replaced my '07 Vespa 250 GTS. I started my CC down sizing a couple of years ago and have been enjoying riding even more having begun the transition to smaller rides. I am intrigued by the reports from members riding long distance on the 50 cc machines. My only problem is I'm 6'3" and weigh 230 pounds. I don't think that would leave much margin for a change of clothes or a sleeping bag. I've started my plans for a summer of '12 Minnesota Four Corners tour. I'm figuring in the 2400 - 2500 mile range and I'll be taking it easy and enjoying the sights. I'm planning on credit card camping this first trip. I'll be sure to start a ride report when I roll off the center stand.
I've been a lurker here for some time now and was recently encouraged by an active member to jump in. So SPLASH....what a way to start 2013.
P.S. That structure in the background is at St. John's University in Collegeville, MN. It's a sculpture made from saplings downed by volunteers and "ramrodded" by a visiting artist this past year. I like the whimsy of it. I wouldn't want to live there today. It's -12 degrees outside and I don't think it has the R value I'm accustomed too.
Happy New Year! Very nice scooter and I too love the idea of touring on smaller machines ... taking your time and smelling the roses as you pass by! Look forward to the ride report.
Paul ... looks like you are enjoying your scoot! Good for you!! May you have a happy new year and 100 more! (All on 2 wheels of course)
