OMG. I love the CT's. My neighbor had a CT-70 when I had a Z-50, and it was the "big bike" in the neighborhod. I think Sochiro Honda had us all hooked by age 7.

Speaking of CT's...I'd sell my soul for a perfect CT-110. Probably one of the kewlest camp bikes ever made, next to the TW-thingey.

Basically, yes. But the scoot also has a Dellorto 24G carb, which is very finicky to dial in. Started with a 120, backed down to a 110 and soft-seized, now I'm at a 112, and it's still not quite there because the idle is handling most of the around town stuff and it's rich but on long country rides it's a bit lean.

This is the only pic I have. My Alienware crashed taking all my pictures and old camera software with it (limping along on an old notebook for now). Got a new Canon SD400 and snapped this with it before the wife stole it and took it to Las Vegas with her (to do a Track Day at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway).

Actually, not even 2 mirrors? You don't find it annoying that you can't see what's behind you?

It's somewhat disconcerting to see that long back-up of cars that are following you at 15 miles an hour up hill. Maybe it's better not to know.

It goes 32 miles an hour. Nothing's behind me.

Actually, I have a clamp-on mirror that goes on the legshield. That pic was taken soon after I moved up here and I had taken it off for shipping.

That is an incredible picture. Was this sort of trip a regular thing?

It's a 2003 Kymco Super 9, same as Photog's blue one.

Edited to ad that I missed Photog's earlier reply somehow.
