    The 2 wheels in the back look like they are pretty close together. Thatd' make it pretty hard on the turns.

    I already have a couple duals and riding this around will make them seem more powerful :}

    I took a chance and bought the TMAX. This thing is awesome! I ride with my wife most of the time 313 mile so far and barely notice her on the back. Trying to break it in properly although I must admit to goosing it up to 5500RPMs for very short bursts.
    Have fun with the whole experience,

    Great question, I predict this will be a very popular thread.:deal


    I have an 82 hond passport and an 87
    spacy 250
    I would like my next bike to be a Symba or a sym hd200. Maybe a maddass 125.
    But it will probably be another POS craigslist whore bike that I ride the crap out of and never look back on. :clap

    86 elite 250 . I wanted an helix but it was like pulling hens teeth to find one were I live at the price I wanted. The onlly one I found was for 3 grand and that was the same year as my elite. I ll wait for a little and find that helix sooner or latter.

    Current - Vespa GTS 300 and Honda SH300.

    Future - Not sure. Hope Honda come out with something to rival the TMax.

    Might just trade both of the above.

    Not sure..Maybe a Tmax, Silverwing, or Burgman. If not that, then I might keep my current ride and add something like a Helix.

    Actually, my next bike (projects notwithstanding) may be a used Goldwing. I like the idea of touring, but don't want to plunk down $25000 for a new Goldwing, so a used one is an appealing option...

    Currently riding a Genuine Buddy 125. The GF managed to get ahold of a project bike for free: a '91 Honda Nighthawk 750. The idea is to learn some wrenching together and get that thing running! :D In exchange, I'm going to teach her how to ride the Buddy.

    Once it's running, if she lets me have the Nighthawk (too tall for her) I MIGHT let her have the spare key to the scooter! :evil

    If you're that interested, be patient; you'll be glad you waited. I essentially traded a Pacific Coast for mine and as far as I'm concerned, I got more for less.

    I had two 1990 PC800's over the years and people use to call them scooters. Very good bike with good handling, adequate performance and decent storage. Maybe Honda should bring them back and call them scooters.
