  • Re: On endangered list

    A scooter I see frequently is the Aprilia SR MT 125. Lots of these running around my areas as they are supported by a dealer (Racecourse Motors Randwick) strategically located to a high density youth market. Also they are situated on a corridor to the city that is serviced by frequent public transport. Great for drop off then p/u service ...

    I would believe that the success Honda are enjoying with the CB 125E have taken potential sales from the scooter segment. I see these little CBs everywhere in the areas I traverse. &nbsp;
  • Re: Honda Dio vs Suzuki Address

    That&#39;s a kind sentiment. Thank you. I am absolutely delighted. This scooter has already exceeded my expectation. I will enjoy to run a short post soon. There is no doubt that the economies of scale enjoyed by Honda allow it to produce a quality product at a compeditive price for a product with which they have rich history. &nbsp;
  • Re: On endangered list

    Thank you for posting this. Coincidentally over the last week I have looked back over more recent years to guage the scooter sales market.&nbsp;I have some thoughts why the scoot market continues to slow from peak sales. But not now. Went the NSC Dio road yesterday and am organized for a P/U tomorrow. Have not even had a test ride (thanks Allen ...
  • Re: Honda Dio vs Suzuki Address

    It was great fun because you lived and rode its character. I was reading a European&nbsp;review&nbsp;recently detailing a modern well recognized scooter claiming for some it would be great, but for others, too sanitized; some folk enjoy a raw edge to their ride. Years ago that is mostly what you got .... &nbsp;

    My recollection is that the first 500 H1 Mach 111s were white - &nbsp;(White Lightning). Subsequent colours followed. Given his experience, it was one of the first H1s that screeched past my front door with Jack Forest aboard. If you have never ridden a hard edged two stroke, the power comes on in an abserd rush. It&#39;s like the thing goes ...
  • Re: Honda Dio vs Suzuki Address

    I rememered later last night that the first 500 triple was called - &#39;White Lightening&#39;. And so it was. Some months back I was down at Kiama early when the bluff area&nbsp;became the&nbsp;set&nbsp;for a vintage Japanese bike rally. In they all came, to my hearts delight; the first K series Honda 750s, Z1s and Z900s, Suzuki water bottle ...
  • Re: Honda Dio vs Suzuki Address

    Yep, that&#39;s right, an open license.&nbsp;You could jump on anything ... and gone. Remember you mentioned it first; the first time I saw a Kwaka three was in my own street. My young blood &#39;pickled&#39; as Jack Forrest (of Forrest Elbow Bathurst fame), who lived at the end of the street, went screeching past on a newly released white 500 ...

    Thanks for the great photos Pyrah. &nbsp;
  • Re: Honda Dio vs Suzuki Address

    Recollection has it that we called the pudding basin helmets - half jaffas - after the Jaffa lolly.&nbsp;When I was issued my full motorcycle license, it was after arriving at Kogarah Motor Registery on the mighty Bridgestone, then receiving a few basic instructions. Those instructions&nbsp;included to proceed&nbsp;down to the next corner, turn ...
