I used to ride a Helix. I liked to take trips on it, but it did not have quite enough horsepower for the freeway. I later traded it in on a Kawasaki Vulcan 900.
After a few years, my riding tapered way off. The last year I had the Vulcan, I put all of 150 mi on it. And probably 90% of that was just one ride.
We have family in Taiwan. Scooters abound there. The last time my wife came back she thought she might want to learn to ride a scooter. Naturally I jumped on the chance. I bought her a 150 cc Piaggio..
As she does not have her license, it's mine! But when she does, it's hers.
But I don't entirely fit it. I would like to get my own scooter with a little more guts and a little more space. My criteria is at least 300-350 cc.
I came across a 2008 Swing with very low mileage. I have questions about buying a scoot that is that old with that little mileage. I worry about tire rot and other rubber tubing deterioration.
I think of a Swing as a Helix on steroids.
I joined this forum in hopes of getting educated.
Thank you all.
