Manhattan crisis

Discussion in 'Scooters' started by dropbear, Nov 25, 2008.

  1. Whilst undergoing my mid-life crisis i purchased a scooter ( Manhattan 150L)

    Whilst new to riding i've found it great to ride.
    The manufacturer is well known outside Aust. ( xingyueshen )
    NRMA did a review in April 2008 said it was ok.
    They have a nationwide deal with "ultratune", very handy.
    I get a 150cc, 16" wheels, topbox and alarm ( great if you don't want pissheads riding ya scoot outside the boozer - scares the crap out of em; or ya don't plan on theft insurance) as standard on the road for $3000

    I'm a happy customer/rider :grin:

    PS: If in Melbourne you see a silver Manhattan, black stackhat (with bullet holes) it's the dropbear!

    Brave man to take on Melbourne on a Manhattan!
    No other riding experience???

  5. Hi Dropbear,
