    Why indeed? I'd much rather get something that suits my needs and performs as it should in the first place!

    If there was such a perfect bike/scooter I would agreee. But manufacturers don't make a bike called the "adamtassell". yet anyway. If your needs and wants sit spot on with an available bike/scooter then you are luckySmile

    And if you modify your bike to suit your particular weight, dimensions and eye colour then I'll agree. But mostly people just add the go-faster bits. I certainly scratch my head when I hear about people buying a 50cc scoot then spending huge amounts of money on derestricting, aftermarket pipes, rollers, variators, whatever - ending up spending more than they would on a 300cc machine that will leave their modified 50cc in the dust anyway...

    Yes I am with you. Although for some the modification process is the point.

    I know, I can hardly believe it myself. BunnyBash seems to be really enjoying it at least. Maniac that he is.

    I am waiting on my new bike, a Ducati GT1000. In the meantime I am enjoying a change with a vespa GTS 250. If I don't enjoy the ducati then I will be grabbing another scarabeo in 6 months.

    Re: Why modify instead of buying faster scooter or m/bike?

    I am too lazy to modify. Once upon a time I used to screw with everything mechanical but these days I am pushing to find time to ride at all. So my spare time is now spent riding rather than maintence and modding.
