Got some hiway pegs installed tonight. I bought them from a guy on Zumaforums that makes them. This allows me to stretch my legs way out. A lot more comfortable having the option to move my feet around.

I paid $40 for the bars and then $17.99 for the BMX pegs at Dick's Sporting Goods.

Thanks!

Kinda off topic but as I type I am sitting in Iraq trying to figure out what scoot to purchase when I get home. Ran across this thread and being from Pickens/ Six Mile area I recognized all but a couple of your photos. Thanks for giving me a little ride around home this evening! I can't say how much that helped.

So next week the wife and kids are heading to the beach. That leaves me with a free weekend. I have this crazy idea of riding the Zuma from upstate SC to the Dragon and back on Friday the 5th. I have never been but Google Maps says that is about 160 miles. Of course this would be almost all mountain back roads. Am I crazy for trying this on the Zuma or should I just take the Honda Shadow and not worry about it?

I would rather not spend the night since I will be leaving the dogs at home.

That's going to be a LONG ride in a day, especially on a scooter, Me and my son rode from Dragon across thru Gatlinburg, Cherokee and then on to Seneca and it was an all day affair. Those 160 miles are alot to cover on those roads, but worth every inch!

If you can keep rolling, you should be able to do it in about 4 hours, maybe a little more. On the rare occasion when I get out for an early Saturday morning ride, I can cover 100 miles in about 2 1/2 hours, just steady riding. If I were you, I'd leave about four in the morning, get there just as every one else is waking up, have several hours of fun, then head home.

Looong days ride, but definately worth it to me!

Ooops, let me clarify my post. It would be 160 miles each way.

You said you have a free weekend, right?

I agree it would be a long day on a scooter, but possible. It would make for a really nice two day road trip though.

I'm jealous because I'm about 240 or so from Deals Gap, but can't get away for the weekend...

Whip out your calculator. 320 miles divided by 40 mph (average) = 8 hours. You probably won't average 40mph so it'll be even more time. You don't want to stay over night because of the dogs so, no, you can't comfortably make this trip in one day.

I understand about the dogs, mine me everything to the wife. Do you have no relative or neighbor that you can impose on for a day... feed them good before you leave and have them feed the next day in the morning and you get home in the afternoon??
