Scooters Rule!!!

Seems there are several of us on here who are also owners/enthusiasts of scooters and/or mopeds...
I thought we could maybe start a thread for all SCOOTER talk and PICS!

I think a scooter will make the perfect alternative to a toad.

Here are my two Honda CH80's.





100+ mpg cruising!

I have a Honda Reflex. It'll get up and run 70mph and still get awesome fuel mileage.

Post a pic!


I want a Helix for longer distance travel. They look pretty comfy and I love the storm trooper styling of the 80's Honda designs.

Kudos to you for being the first to be seen ON your scoot!
Mine has the gears and tranny all pulled apart... Surgery will continue till the rest of the parts arrive next week (hopefully)
Those old Honda trail mini's are COOL.

Anyone ever seen one of these?

I love the idea of bringing scooters or small 2-cycle dirt bikes along instead of towing a car. Can anyone give info on how to fasten scooter to the back of a front engine bus, so you don't have to tow a car?

I am working on designing something akin to a lifeboat hoist on the rear deck of mine. I am thinking I might be able to raise and lower my Honda TTR225 along with the drop down portion of the deck. Still on the drawing board at this time.

We'll see.

From my build thread "The Four Season Prime", My 2006, 49 cc Piaggio Typhoon on duty in 2013.






In this pic I just used it to run up to the house to greet the courier that delivered the Oshpo.
