  • Re: Bigger is not always better

    I can only agree about the quality/value of the Downtown. I made the mistake of taking one for a test ride when I had my Xevo400 in for a service and was sold on the whole package. Tried a Beverly 350 at the same time and could not see $2000 more in it over the Kymco product; and the Downtown looked better in my opinion. After 700 km on my brand ...
  • Re: Bigger is not always better

    And this is why we have such diversity in our bikes; we all have different requirements. 5 years ago, I got back into bikes with a Vespa 200GT. I loved it, and it would do most things I wanted from it, but as I live away from Bondi or any real suburban environment, it felt in need of a bit more when I went out on the freeway.  Now I have a ...

    Very true. I had had it for 3 and a half weeks and was into superficial checks before each ride, but the monthly check-up was approaching. Once bitten........ thank you for your kind thoughts

    No Rod, has a side stand. It even turns the motor off if you have kept it running. I did a 30km run around the wider area today and managed to keep electrics connected; even tried some rough stuff to keep Pyrah guesing. All good. My GT was never less than 100% reliable and the new beast has a way to go to re-establish total faith, but things ...

    Thought I had jinxed myself after all my good comments about the new scoot! Suddenly started to misfire and engine/code lights brightening the dash every time I hit a rough patch or tried to accelerate Managed to limp home thinking of how to get to my mechanic and minimising damage in doing so. Many tears held back, just. Got home and ...

    Good work, just a shame I am a bit slow on the uptake/upload. Even got the colour right - black on black. I still have and love the 200GT, but the extra power from the bigger engine makes for a compelling argument when thinking of the step up to a maxi. Especially when you live outside the city confines. The shape is not as naturally appealing ...

    Still trying to work out how to upload photos. But it will happen!
  • Piaggio Xevo

    Just picked up my new(?) scoot - a 2008 Xevo with 8600km on the clock. I could not be happier with my choice. I still have my Vespa 200GT but because I live in semi-rural area away from the city, I found myself wanting a little more power for the freeway runs that I do. The GT was great around town and on the rural backroads, but I always thought ...
