It's now appropriate that I rode out of the garage.
I have a 2007 TMax which went on it's first social outing last Sunday. That ride has certainly changed my initial opinion of the scoot. Earlier familiarisation trips had been a variety of speeds and duration. A couple of 30km each way commutes had me missing the MP3, especially when waiting at the traffic lights.
The TMax, as commented by others here, certainly has some punch, great handling and some serious stopping power when neccessary. I will probably replace the weights with DrPulleys at the next service to remove a slight lag after take-off. The riding position is comfortable with the ability to stretch the legs. Storage under the saddle is disappointing as well as not having a 12v outlet (resolved).
The MP3 will be kept for regular commuting purposes as it is too much fun. I apologise to all those bruised ego's of HD and sprocket rockets owners that I've p'd orf from the lights. Tuff. The benefits of the 2 wheels up front has been justified many times which makes the MP3 first weapon of choice when it looks like rain. The carrying capacity of the MP3 is ideal for doing the shopping on the way home. Locking the tilt up makes it easy for pushing around when parking or waiting at lights.
The TMax will be mainly kept for having fun and the odd dry weather commute. That will probably change over time as I get more saddle time.
