But show us an image of you, riding it. I've got a little (very little) Suzuki my Dad handed over to me and I feel (at 5 foot 8 and 170 pounds) very much the circus clown, riding it. If it was just 10% bigger, I'd probably use it a lot.
You 2 should form a posse
That and a little donut cushion!In order to enjoy riding a scooter, even one as classic, and yes...classy, as an Italian Vespa 300, one must learn to suppress one's vanity to some degree, and just allow the purity and pleasure of the experience to overcome all preconceived notions concerning riding such a machine.
You should get one. I ride a 1994 Honda CT110 which is the bike the Trail 125 is based upon. I've kitted mine out with a long range tank (purloined from someone's long lost XR250) and set it up for adventure touring.
You just need to admit that the TDub is really fun and you like it. Because that is true. Wish I had never sold mine.lol at cheap thrills... i have a ktm 350, my wife has a yamaha tw 200... i ride the tw quite a bit for errands etc... i tell everyone it belongs to the wife...
A week or two ago, the History Channel had a program relating the development of Japanese cars after WWII......and seeing a Honda Cub brought back memories of Jr High School, and the "cool guys" (not me) riding those to school. I wanted one so bad......
