You Blokes have probably given many others here a lot of food for thought - except that in our blinkered ways we probably regard scooters as being pretty unmanly an' all that. My first scooter was a Vespa GS 200cc two-stroke with four-speed handlebar-lever operated gears and 12" wheels. My wife-to-be (still together after 59 years!) and I ventured all over SE England on it. I'd have another tomorrow!

That's what I'm talking about @sturgeon - hipsters need not apply...

Managed to track down and purchase a 2019 limited edition from a collector today. Never been outdoors, registered, zero km and never had fuel in the tank. Procycle is helping me out and picking the bike up tomorrow - quick service and rego. Should have the bike by Thursday... Happy days.

Thanks, PZ. I'll post some pix when it arrives home. I'm really excited and can't wait.

Might do something like this instead as I wouldn't want to overload my top box.

I'm in the market for a furry seat cover PZ - might be time to put one of your fleabags to good use. Happy to pay a fair price.

Very cool little scooter MikeS. Definitely need to move on from that red seat tho'.

Maybe you could do it in kangaroo fur? - fresh roadkill would be a free and plentiful source as soon as we get let out...

I’m loving the hot, Honda Red seat - it’ll make the bike a collector’s item into the future, so I wouldn’t mess with it.
Anyway, what is ‘age appropriate’? No-one knows how old you are once you don your fullface helmet.

The red seat is the only design feature I'm not comfortable with(for now). Reality is no one other than myself would care. I'll probably order a grey or black genuine one from Japan and not touching the red seat. Once I get over it, I'll probably put it back on. I had similar reservations about my little G310R, but I never give it a second thought. Although not getting much seat time as my son has unofficially claimed it as his ride.
