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.
