Let me just start out with, yes this is a scooter and no I am not trying to pass it off as a valid replacement for your actual motorcycle. But hey, I love toys, I want as many as I can fit in my garage. I bought this Yamaha Zuma 125 originally for the desert when I go camping to get around and to the john when needed. I paid 800 bucks for this thing and it runs like a champ. It had just been registered before I bought it so I figured I'll ride it on the street for kicks until the registration is up next year and I will put it on non-op for camping trips. Now I live 5 miles from the office and this thing is actually really nice to commute on. It tops out at 60mph which is plenty fast for side streets. I know it is a scooter and goofy lookin, but this is Motorcycle Cruiser and nothing we own stays stock or looks goofy.

PIAA LP550 5" LED Driving Light Kit, SAE Compliant $349staff

This is where PIAA comes into play. How can something look lame with their iconic caged LED lighting on it? We ordered a set of their LP550 5" LED Driving Light Kits to swap out for the stock halogen lamps in there and the diameter was the same so all I had to do was fab up some mounting brackets to seat them in the bike's buckets. The kit is priced at $349 and comes with wiring and a switch if you wanted to add them to a project instead of replacing. I love the look now, I already stripped off the turn signals, mirrors, rear tail section mud flap thing.

We have a lot more in store for this little scooter than just lighting. We are in the works with a pretty reputable scooter shop in Signal Hill, CA Drowsports for a new engine and some beefed up suspension. I still plan on taking this out to the desert and I will have it out in Pismo Beach this upcoming June so we will see how it does in the dunes, stay tuned for that, but I think I will keep it registered as well. It is kinda fun to whip around the city, but I won't be selling my "big boy bike" any time soon I assure you. Stay tuned for more on this fun little side project!
