She's Here; Sportcity Cube
 
Pics or it didn't happen, right?

Delivered around 6:00 tonight, to dark even with the light on in the garage so I'll get some pics tomorrow. I live in a cul-de-sac so I decided to drive around despite the darkness. The cul-de-sac was way to small for anything other than getting comfortable and going in circles so I decided to ride around the block for about 30 minutes. Granted, it's just a half-mile all the way around, but I had a blast.

All this talk about "too big" or what size was quickly erased. It's perfect.

More to come...

Congrats on the new ride.

250 right?

GREY.HOUND 11-07-2012 10:24 PM

Yes, the 250. And now for some pics

I see you got the faster and better looking blue model:D

cdwise 11-08-2012 04:57 PM

Blue is the "only" color for a Sports City though I'd suggest getting a real windshield. It makes a huge difference.

GREY.HOUND 11-08-2012 10:06 PM

Yeah, there was a silver one at the dealer but I definitely liked the blue better. Quick reminder please, how accurate are the fuel guage and speedo? I've read before but can't remember.

It's supposed to be very cool this weekend, but none-the-less, as long as it's not rainy I'll get some saddle time in.

Speedo reads at least 10% high. Fuel gauge doesn't even move until it burns off around a gallon. It's pretty linear after that.

Enjoy your ride this weekend.

Use a GPS to find out how optimistic your speedo is. Ours is about 8% but one of the BVs on the other hand is 3mph under 50 mph and 5 mph over 50.

When the light goes on you have 20-30 miles left. Once the speedo gets below 1/2 its pretty accurate but like many cars it stays high for longer than it should then takes a biggish drop.

:thumb Nice!

ScootTour 11-09-2012 02:37 PM

looks just like mine, and for the record I know of 3 other people with same make and year in Houston. Its a solid bike

oh and for me its my only transportation.

Dabears 11-10-2012 04:02 PM

Looks great- I'm sure you'll be pleased with it. Be safe.

JerryH 11-10-2012 04:46 PM

Very nice. Doesn't look much bigger than the Honda SH150i, and probably didn't cost anymore. My only concern is that it might be too small for the freeways, but I guess that depends on the freeway. Since you live in CA, you should be able to ride it all winter. I live in AZ, and winter, what there is of it, IS the riding season. Way to hot to ride in the summer. Enjoy it.

GREY.HOUND 11-10-2012 08:06 PM

Ha! got out a little today to give it a go some more. Darn speedo, took me awhile to figure out why everyone was "speeding". Kph on the speedometer; mph on the inside in smaller numbers, lol.

So far so good.
Thanks for the replies and kind words everyone.

btw, it was low 40's this morning after a light rain overnight. Very brisk. I need warmer gloves and also went out and bought some long johns. TMI right?

Dabears 11-11-2012 08:42 AM

Rather than long johns, which can be a hassle when you get back indoors, consider some mesh or textile overpants- Since your weather is moderate- the mesh may be more than enough to take the chill off-

I have the Olympia mesh, and because they have armor in the knees they keep you warm- i'm ridden them in 25 degree weather and did fine...30 seconds to put on or remove, so great for commuting.
