YAMAHA zuma 125 real off road

Here is my latest trip to last chance canyon rd. It was a 460 mile trip from visalia CA to red rock st. park.

I met up with some people out there for the four days I stayed.

Check it out!

Do they have a scooter class at the Dakar?

Wow, GREAT video! The Zuma is a cool scoot, almost like a street oriented dual sport scooter or something! It does so surprisingly good off road!

You're making my hands itch!

I'm surrounded by some of the most beautiful riding country in the world here and there's a pretty, yellow, Zuma out there in the garage...

And it also hasn't been above freezing for the last two months, unless it was pouring down rain.

I got a new Kermit chair for Christmas, and a new sleeping bag I've only been able to use twice. C'mon nature, give us a break. We're dyin' here!

Great Video. I have had my Zuma for about a month now and am really enjoying it.

Awesome!

That looks like so much fun. I'm seriously considering a scoot, and the Zuma is on my short list.

That really shows why a Zuma is a great fit for off-road scootering. The Zuma is one of the few scooters with foot pegs under your butt that allow you to stand upright with control. As you can see in the whoops there, standing is the only way to go. Most scooters demand that you stay seated foot-forward.

I don't think I want to be the next owner of your scooter. It looks like it's going to live a hard life.

Cool video.

BTW, make sure and replace your belt a little early! Going up hills like that and riding hard likely will put extra stress on it.

One thing thats good is those are geared so low. They don't have a highway gear and therefor won't ever shift into to high of a gear. But putting a LITTLE lighter rollers in wouldn't hurt if you do mostly off road riding. That way the RPMs can go up a little more. Its kinda like putting a bigger sprocket on the back of your dirtbike for better hill climbing abilities.

But how does the suspension setup work there? It doesn't look like you've got a whole lot of travel, so it takes a good rider to do that stuff!

Funny, I was thinking the same thing when I watched the video!

Try licking the fingertip of your glove like you would to your finger before flipping through a stack of paper. A lot of time it just takes a little bit of moisture to get the touchscreen to work with gloves.
