Thats why when my 150 was no longer fast enough i traded it in on a 250. No problem now.

I agree with you. Once you start modifying you loose too much reliability.

Are we getting new motor Motorcycle tags in SC? I know we changed the big ones a couple of years ago.

I am under the impression that we will in the next year or two.I have had mine just over 5 years now and usually,I get a new tag every 5 or 6.Not by choice.I don't know why the state does that.I have had 3 or 4 on my car since it was bought new in 1997.Again,not by choice but because the gooberment updated them.

Decided to take the scoot out in the rain to grab a tag that was about 20 miles away.

Heading out:

Poured rain the whole way but the scooter handled the wet just fine.

Beautiful weather this weekend in South Carolina. Highs in the 60's and lots of sun. My daughter has a swim meet about 30 miles away. Perfect trip for the Zuma!!!


Quick stop along the way.

there is no way i couldve done that without spilling those drinks!

i actually want to get some kind of cup holder that i can screw onto my knee panel for holding drinks if i go to get fast food, as it is now i have to go in the cage so i have somewhere to set the drinks!! i always thought the scooter would be good for going to get it as the engine is near the seat compartment so would keep it warm LOL

With gas prices on the upswing it looks like the Zuma is about to become a lot more important in my transportation hierarchy.

I rode to work today. Had a great time. Time to get back on the scooter full time.

This has been the warmest winter that we have ever had.

It was in the 70's on Thursday and in the 60's on Friday. Crazy to have this kind of weather in the middle of winter.
