  • Re: Xmax 300

    I went back to sit on the Xmax again. It's more about appreciating it for what it is rather than grouching about what it isn't. But this is the first scoot (actually first vehicle) that I'll (probably) be buying new, and I'm not keen on spending serious money on something that doesn't tick all the boxes for me. Of course, the ...
  • Re: Xmax 300

    Had a chance to sit on an Xmax 300 today. Coming from a Majesty 250, the Xmax is slimmer in every way except where it counts: the seat is taller and wider (or possibly simply wider). It's workable, but not ideal. I was also fairly unimpressed with the build quality, where e.g. the glovebox panels seem fairly loose. Fairing, screen coverage, ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Thanks for the reply jshowyin. The other driver has lodged a claim and I am in communication with their insurance agency. I have claimed for both the damage to my scooter and replacement cost for my gear. I obtained a repair quote from Yamaha World which came out at twice the market value of the scooter, but they want to send an assessor out ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Well, it happened again. This time I got a ride in the ambulance.  Riding 60km/h down the middle eastbound lane of a six lane road (three lanes each way). Two cars sitting in the divider waiting to do a u-turn. The first does so in front of me, safely. The second evidently doesn't see me coming and decides to follow. I slam on the brakes ...
  • Nolan N20 and N21 Visor Helmets

    See this imgur album for pics: https://imgur.com/a/uBHxr   The Nolan N20 was my first scooter helmet, predating even my first scooter. It was comfortable and stylish and it has served me well these past four or so years. Still, it had a few limitations. Even with the lower visor that Nolan offers as an accessory, rain was still ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Thanks Pyrah. I think it's fair to say I came out ahead from the crash. I'm very pleased with the Majesty so far, although it's a 2001 model it has only done 5700kms. The increased turning circle takes a bit of getting used to, and I haven't been game to lane filter on it yet, but I'm sure I'll get used to it soon ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Well the scooter has been sold as a repairable write-off, a replacement scooter has been secured (2001 Yamaha Majesty 250), and third-party insurance has been purchased. Thanks to everyone for their advice and assistance.    
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Thanks Pyrah. I spoke to John at Show & Go and he advised trying Gumtree to see if anyone would buy the scooter for more the nominal salvage value he would be able to offer. Just in the process of setting that up now...  
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Seems I misheard on the telephone -- it has been classified as a repairable write-off (and placed on the WOVR). The scooter remains in my possession. The insurance agency accepted my valuation for the scooter at $1900, and also reimbursed the full cost of the helmet I was wearing at the time. I only requested $100 for the latter, but apparently ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    [quote user="INMA"]Remember to claim for helmet, cloths and anything else damaged in the accident. $1400 sounds about right for the scooter if you get the rego back on top of that money.[/quote] In my counter-offer I have claimed for the helmet also, their offer of $1400 was the for the scooter alone, plus leaving the wreck with me. ...
