From L5T to PCX150

  1. Hi folks.

    As a teen (late 1980s) I used to ride a Yamaha L5T ag-bike that my grandfather gave to me when he retired from his farm. It was in immaculate condition - only had 900 miles on the odo, despite being 1969 vintage. I soon put that to right! I loved that bike, and kept riding that on the trails up until I was about 23, then had to sell it (very hard to do!). I never rode it on the road. After that, it was all cars thereafter.

    Well, now, almost 15 years later, I had the need for an urban runabout (wife always wants the car) and have got the 2-wheel itch again. So, I bit the bullet and just recently got my R-date Ls. Now, I've bought a new Honda PCX150, and am about to try it out for the first time on Saturday when I pick it up. I'm based in Adelaide for about another year, then am moving to Hobart.

    Well, that's the story so far... More to come, I hope!

  5. So I've had my new PCX150 for about a week now. Here is a photo of the 'white delight':
    Lovin' it to bits, though I've only done a few 100 km so far, so still easing it in.

    Is there such as terms as a scooter-motorcycle hybrid? Because it feels a lot like a bike to me, in terms of its form and style, rather than a scoot. Anyway, I've definitely quickly become a Honda fan!
