 Hello from Central Michigan

Go down 

PostSubject: Hello from Central Michigan   Sun Dec 29, 2013 1:14 pm

I am age 71, a widower, Gold Wing Rider, and consider myself a motorcycle/scooter enthusiest.  I tour an average of 15000 miles yearly.  My intention is to switch from my Gold Wing to a maxi scooter very soon, possibly this coming Spring.

My dog, Pugsley, always rides pillion with me, harnessed and double strapped to the Wing's armrests.  We have logged over 60,000 miles on three different motorcycles.  I believe that Pugsley enjoys the ride at least as much as me, probably more.  Needless to say, Pugsley is excited about the maxi scooter plans. However, he is always excited about everything.  The snow is a foot deep here in Michigan, but whenever I get near the bike, he is sitting by it, tail wagging, yipping, etc.

Anyway, my first choice in a maxi scooter would be the Honda Integra, which of course is not here in the U.S. yet.  Hopefully, it will be here this Spring, but if not may have to go with the BMW scooter, or possibly the Burgman.

I developed my love of two wheels on a 1952 Allstate in 1956, then moved on up to a new 1958 Allstate Crusaire.  Since those teen age years, I've been riding sport and touring bikes.  I am enthused about this switch to a scooter, since it will be like my second childhood.

It's quiet on here but if you have any questions about your choice of maxi there are a lot of different makes ridden by the members and I'm sure one of them will answer.

If you're not living close to the edge you're taking up too much room

I too have been riding a bit; started on a minibike in 1962, moved up to MotoX and Desert racing, then went to street bikes up to 750cc for the next 41 years. Moved to a scooter for the first time this last year, and I feel like a kid again. Forgot how much fun riding can be when you are not fighting a bike. I live in West Michigan, and the scoot is stored safely for the winter in the garage, but I still go out there just to look at it and dream about riding it again.

Hope you have the same joy that I found!

Ride safe and come on Sun!  sunny
