    An empty RV park - this is “mellow time “... quiet around here this season.

    And new tag: your scoot at an RV park.

    New tag: obelisk / something tall and narrow.

    BTW: todays unveiling of the "new" V-Strom could mean I'll frequent this thread mostly for a while...

    Nice 'strom, love the color, nice shots, that's most of why I follow this thread.
    I appreciate you in this thread, I think you're the only rider we have in Eastern Europe, but a VStrom is not a scooter.
    As I recall the last time this came up we drew the line at Honda Cubs and assorted clones. aka A Symba would be acceptable, but a Sym Wolf would not.

    Folks, please weigh in on this.

    That is my understanding, as well. I had asked if using my e-bike (since it has a "scooter mode" with a twist throttle) was acceptable... nope. I get it. It is, after all... Scooter Tag.

    1) Thank you, appreciate your forthcoming!

    2) Very, very CENTRAL Europe, please! ;)

    3) I think I was misunderstood: "New" Strom is same old cow; just a facelift. I like old, I like lowtech, I like simple. I wear mechanical watch, I use fountain pen, I trust my fist before any (short range) weapon. But adding features to decades old tech, making it 1250 heavy in the process, while maintaing pathetic my scooter+20mm ground clearace is not the way. Alas I'm not sure I am adventurous enough to go Orange. I want Japanese! Therefore it is possible, my only steed will be my old Max for the near future - hence my "...this thread for a while" comment.

    See you 'round!

    Why would anybody want to ride anything but a scooter anyway?

    I often wish I had less protection from the wind in the summer. Most motorcycles offer that.

    :)

    Because meditation in the woods beats one in the office.
    Because standing up on the bike shouldn't be a three step proces involving pull on the handlebar.
    Because more powerrrrr.

    Yet I know of quite a few riders who completed the circle (well, triangle): scoot to ADV/cruiser to scoot. Perhaps it really is smart thing to do...

    New tag: let us have pipes, interesting structure matching the color of your ride or you astride the scoot wearing a kilt or smoking a pipe.
