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!
