Well, this is my second ride... the first was a Kymco Super 8 scooter (don't hold that against me - lol). Might not be a high-performance one, but sure does a great job. We've seen some pretty neat stuff together and been to some great places.
I was told a 250 wouldn't do the job to ride to Melbourne, but we did a round trip of 750kms in a day - Albury-Melbourne and back; along with some city tripping too. We wen't up through Mansfield, in the wet, and back late at night and in the wet, and it performed outstandingly.
People bag them out because they're Korean-made, well this one suits me just fine... for now anyways !
Happy travels everyone.
