    ooo big disc up front...

    I have things on the way for it... exhaust, variator and clutch springs at first... after I get a 21mm carb and 70cc cylinder, it should be able to do around 110km... heh

    I have an old 73 ts250 as well, but I'm the process of rebuilding it.

    are you still going to nitrous it? lol
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

    lol, do it, put "NOSS" on there... just dont hit it at anything under 40kph, and dont expect it to survive more than a bottle or two :S

    scooters are cheap and semi fun, but once you buy a real bike, youll laugh at the fact you ever thought scooters were fun.

    yeah I'm pretty sure once I get an actual bike I'll be giving the scooter to my cousin or something. I'm only 18 though, and I havent been working at all, so I dont have the moneys! my uncle gave me his old ts250 for free, but it didnt run, so hopefully I can get it going before the riding season is over. I still have to schedule some time to go take my test too...

    I finally got myself a new battery... there is nothing like riding a bike again... Cool Scooter. It is really too bad that scooters aren't as popular here like the rest of the world. They have some super cool stuff in Europe.

    I saw one of those the other day. Some guy who must have weighed about 300 pounds was riding it on 36th and 40th ave N.E.
    he had a skull cap helmet and the bike was barely pullen him. Looked just like that bike, except he had a different muffler on his, and damn was it loud. Sounded just like a full throttle weed wacker!
    They're kind of neat, and probably wicked on fuel, I wouldn't mind trying one out.

    Your scooter is WAY nicer than most of the ones in Taiwan!

    i want one of those TMAXs

    http://www.tmax500.com/
    http://www.motorcycle.com/mo/mcyam/01tmax.html

    these look sick, and have about 40 horses and about 433 pounds, so theyre just as fast as your average 500cc beginner bike.

    so basically, yes, you can ride them on the highway and not die.

    That is pretty sick. A 500cc scooter. Would like to see more pictures tho, the yamaha website covers up most of theirs with their bullshit flash technology shit.

    a lot of companies have 'maxi-scooters'

    500cc+ for the most part

    Does a scooter require licence plate? special drivers licence? insurance?

    Looks like fun!

    I hope to rent a motorbike like fivefreshfish posted when I go back to Malaysia. Hopefully I don't get crushed between some crazy drivers.
