I'm jealous. I'd love to be riding now. Nice pics. Nice bike. Enjoy.
I have the same windshield on my Zuma 125, and it works very well, but it sure is ugly.
Crazy winter storm blew through this afternoon/evening. Chains are required on all vehicles except 4x4 with snow tires on all four tires on the main road about 15 miles east of where I was riding. It's amazing, because yesterday, the high temperature was almost 70 degrees in those places.
Like I said, the elevation change is crazy right there. I was at about 400 feet, 7 miles away, the town is over 1600 feet, and another 17 miles and you're all the way up to 5600 feet.
I went for a great ride today up to a small town in the Sierras called Shaver Lake. I was worried the SC would have some difficulty with the climb but not a hint of trouble. I decided to take the secondary route up the mountain. The town is at an elevation of 5500 feet, and I live at about 350 feet. From the base of the foothills to the town is about 32 miles, so the climb comes quickly. There is a 4 lane hwy that has speeds of 55 but I took "the old road" with very few speeds above 45 due the winding nature. I don't regret it at all. What a great bike! These pics don't show much, only proof that I did it. lol
You do have some great riding in California. I plan on making it back there some day.
Yes, fortunately we do. There is even a stretch of road known as "The
I'm also about 1 hour from the gate to Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP and 2 hours from Yosemite. I do plan on riding to both this summer with a buddy or two. Of course, pics if it happens. It's also about 3 hours to the Ocean, with some smaller winding mountain passes. Love this bike!
Went out with no real intention of going that far, but as the miles passed, and with my new found confidence in my Aprilia's ability to go the distance, I thought I'd see if I could get to Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP. I did. Unfortunately, I got to the entrance and just turned around, LOL! It made for a great ride though, about 110 miles round trip and the road was beautiful.
My destination, somewhere in the distance:
A little overlook, about 2500 feet up.
Well, you know, just because...
A quarter mile from the entrance:
Been here almost all year actually. Went for my first "real ride" of the year this morning. I commute most days but haven't been out for pleasure really.
These photo threads are so delicious. The only bummer is that they eventually fall by the wayside, and unless we have too much free time, don't get to see those that are so worthy of a read. My Firefox bookmarks folder is starting to get the size of a small novel. :huh
On a happy note, temp is going to get up to 50 today for the first time since last November, I think, and will finally get to take the bike out of storage for 'good', and go for a ride.
(OK, OK, but it's nice to dream...)
Took our Sports City over for a complete service, everything from the air filter to the belt to rollers, add a usb port to the windshield support, install the euro turn signals and whatever else it might be prudent to do before I leave next month for Alaska. Looks like between mid May and mid June it will get a bit over 5,000 miles added to its odometer.
New larger topcase is sitting here waiting to replace the smaller Givi that was on it. A new waterproof roll top duffle be filled. Need to reactivate the Spot and upload the maps to the GPS as well but those may wait until after I return from Atlanta.
I need some help! How can I repair or replace the following part or parts for the kill switch
Officially it's the picture after this
Here is the culprit, the plastic piece on the spring is broken
Any advice is appreciated
I had the same issue with my switch. It was covered under warranty. I would go that avenue.
If not warrantied you could order a new one from AF1.
What is the blue-green looking spooge coming out of the switch?
I placed an order from Af1. Hopefully it's in stock; $3 part, $9 shipping oh well as long as it arrives I'm good.
I was wondering if the green stuff was corrosion, it was suggested that it was over on the Ape forum.
It looks like corrosion. I used to be the electrical guru at a Toyota dealership shop and often saw the same thing on harness connectors located in damp parts of the car body like under carpeting back in the 70s. More recently connectors tend to be in dryer places and/or treated with white lithium grease to prevent this.
Was the kill switch in stock?
Yeah, it took 4 days to arrive and 5 minutes to replace. Less than $9 delivered. Af1 is amazing!

Glad Af1 had the part and you are back on the road.
