Hello Mr Grinsel. Here it is July already. Do you have one of your legendary rides planned? Now that you’ve moved to Minnesota you’re a quarter of the way closer to Alaska. Or maybe you’d prefer the Trans-Labrador Highway / Newfoundland loop. You’ve always come up with some impressive trips and we’re anxious to hear what you’re going to pull out of your bag of tricks this time.

In WI---right now look at Honda Super cub 125----but US model has no sidestand or big luggage rack and accessories need to come from Thailand or Japan=time and money.   Looking at Honda PCX 160, probably has Helix like performance BUT look at Valve Adjust video!   You have to take bike apart to get at valve cover---no no in my book or run it until you burn valve and then take apart.   Dealers adding too many add ons to price.   Recession should bring prices down when bikes are not moving out of the showrooms.  

One trip I would like to do this year, Hyder AK again---I like riding thru Canadian rockies.  Not difficult ride, almost no Interstate for me.

How many times have you ridden to Hyder on a Helix?

As I recall on Helix, at least once, also with Burgman 400 and at least once Honda CB300F and once with Honda 750 Nighthawk and trailer

Any ride or purchase this year will not be on Honda PCX-----just checked at dealer---Honda flat rate for valve adjust is 7.2 hours---$1038 at Chippew Falls WI ! You have to take whole bike apart to get at Valve cover=not good design!!

That is ridiculous, John! And I thought 3 hours to change an air filter on a Goldwing 1800 was bad... On the other hand, I have 25K on my Silver Wing and have NEVER adjusted the valves and it still runs great.

The topic of Mr Grinsel's next scooter has been going on since October last year.

Time is a movin' on and if there's nothing available that ticks all the boxes in the small motorcycle or scooter field, do whatever long trip was on the cards this year in that Chevrolet Spark car.
