they sell very well for delivery business (Domino's Pizza for example, and pharmacies that deliver). The old 125 model is the king, this year Honda has introduce a 150 cc model that I do not like since it is made in China and not in Brazil, and yes it is cheaper and comes with an electric start plus the kick and a front disk brake (unlike the 125)

they do get like 80 mpg and do 55-65 mph (the 125 model and I would guess the 150 would do easier)

they are bullet proof!

It's good to have friends! That rear rack is absolutely industrial! I have a hard case on mine and sometimes it just doesn't do the job.

well I have a couple of things I have done to the BEAT.

After ridding it for about 2 minutes I notices that the mirrors would not do, so I order some replacements. The manual does not mention the sizes so first I try to put the KLR mirrors, but they were to big to I went with normal mirrors plus the 10 - 8 mm adapter and perfect fit.

here is what I got:


now with the after


I also added 2 more items, first a clock, so I can get there on time


and a small bag so I can put stuff there (like a movie or the tortillas)



I think the coolest thing is that my wife ask for the keys to the scooter today!!! and she did a couple of laps around the block, and with no traffic she did great! latter she took on a real avenue with trafic. She said and I cuote "I really like!! I like my scooter?" lol!!!! And yes her smile was bigger than mine! so I guess I will be needing a new scooter soon!

If you are serious about scootering down to Cabo, let me know. Ever since I totaled my 08 KLR 650 in April 2010 (and broke my right leg) I am back to scooters for good. I'm still interested in smaller displacement touring.

My collection includes 2 Vespa PX and a very rare 1984 Honda Aero 125 (NH125 Lead). It is a 125cc 2 stroke, sold in USA 49 states for 1 year only.

hey Raja!!!

nice to see you around here. I think you are the same one as on the other forum. What happend to your KLR?

Anyway, I am a long way from the Baja trip on the scooter, hey even on the KLR but on the bigger bike my wife would worry a lot less.

Nice to talk to you.

taking on Baja with 7 HP

As for the 08 Blue KLR, well, in preparation for Baja/Barranca Del Cobre trip in July 2010, I was test riding the bike fully laden with aluminum panniers out near Western Kern County. I was riding way too fast on a dirt road when I crashed. The next thing I knew, I was in the hospital getting surgery. (Apparently I was air lifted via Helicopter to KMC in Bakersfield) (I can't even remember the $55,000 flight!)

Bike was a total loss. I have been forbidden by my family from motos grandes, so I am back to scooters.

Been riding Vespa since high school in 1985!

Well I like this scooter a lot, but if my wife takes over it, I could always buy another one the same or an Elite 125.

I bought this one with the same mentality as my first motorcycle, something nice, something not expensive, a Japanese (hondas both) so if I did not like the experience of ownership then I would not loose a lot of money.
TheI scooter was the same thing except that I had already several years of experience on 2 wheels (no like when I bought my 125 cc DP bike that I had 0). So the next step will be something with more cc, so maybe a 200-300 cc? there are several options from Vespa, Kymco and Piaggio that I like, maybe even a maxi scooter Burgaman or Magesty.... but that is still very far away, I want to use this one and then when the time comes and money is not like now I would do it.

a top box!

well this time I think I over did it!!!

I had a top box made for the BEAT,, a 35-37 liter box! on a GS/KLR or any bike that sizes it looks great on my little beat it looks BIGG so here are the pics

3/4 front view


side view


and rear view


I don't even notice the case when I am ridding, and like with anything scooter related, I have gotten some comments I don't like, some are funny such as "were are the tamales?" and "ok we have a BIG cooler!, go get the beer!"

Yes I think it is bigger than I need, but I wanted a case to hold my helmet, so this the size that I need it, but maybe a givi would have been better, but what the hell right?!

So I went on a 20 mile ride the other day and I was like so far "away from home" thinking I was on my cross country trip, nothing but the sounds of the waves, surfers, the sun and keeping and eye out for Suv's and 18 wheelers that don't like 45 mph scooters on the 35 mph hwy! (yes I was speeding!!!) Still it was like so coool!!
