My name is Mike from DC area, just picked up my first maxi, a Honda. Rides great. IF anyone in the DC area wants to go riding let me know. I have been riding smaller displacement scooter for years since I live in the city but now I have a 22 mile commute so I thought this would be better and it is! My business does Powder Coating so if there is any in the area or anyone that wants to mail me some parts to refinish. Send me an email or respond.
