Good to see another scooter ride report. I got a similar sized scooter about the same time you did. I am interested in following along and seeing how you like yours.

Yea, your thread and AngryScott's thread got me interested in doing my own. I wish that I had the time and eloquence to write as much as you do in your thread, but a job, a wife, and 4 kids keep me very busy.

I already have to beg, horse-trade, and sneak in order to find time to ride. My wife would kill me if I spent hours at the computer typing up ride reports.

Here are a few more pics that I have taken on my scooter travels.

On the side of Hwy 11 between Cleveland and Ceasar's Head

After Friday's ride I have close to 700 miles on the scoot now. Did my 1st oil change.

Then I ran out of free time, so I will change the final drive oil in the morning.

He said Zuma

I've got to subscribe. I'm in the same boat. Or would that be on the same scoot? Got three young-uns. Not much ride time for me.

Like it so far!!

I'm guessing the 276 a little ways north of 11??

Looks like you're finding some time to ride. Far too many guys give up riding when the kids come along. Look at it this way, a little two wheel therapy is far less exensive than a phsyciatrist

Zuma

Very nice pics! I bet that little scooter is a blast on those hairpin turns! I like the big mural pictures you took also. Ride on dude!

Klaviator, you are correct on the location. Sounds like you know the area.

I left my house in downtown Greenville and headed up over Paris mountain and then down into Traveler's Rest. From there I followed 276 through Marietta and Cleveland. Stayed in 276/11 for a while and then headed up to the top of Ceasar's Head.

The Zuma is way faster and a lot more fun on the tight twists then my Shadow is.

I was having so much fun that I wanted to go down the back side of Ceasar's Head and take a pic at the NC State line but I was running out of time. I had to be back at the Bilo Center at 4:15 and I was still at Ceasar's Head at 3:15.. The little Zuma made the trip back with no problem.

Smaller bikes are often faster on twisty roads and are almost always more fun
I can't wait to get my scooter on some of the really tight roads in the Smokies.
I'm finding that my 150 is a perfect size for tight back roads although it could use a little more power for the uphill sections. I think that Your Zuma is real close to my 150 in size and performance.
Keep updating this report. It's nice to see someone out riding his scooter instead of just debating which scooter is better.

Another beautiful day in the south. It was 60 Degrees this morning and is in the 70's right now. Had a nice ride to work on the Zuma.
