A bit over a month ago, on another forum, a semi local guy that is well known posted up a bike for a friend.. It was something I'd desired for a long time, and although it's 18 years old, it only had 1800 miles on it..
So, now I'm an owner of a....
Yeah, they're ugly, but they're stupid fun..
The original tires were great, but they were 18 years old, so I changed them out to the current standard of Helix riders, (Bridgestone) and while I was at it, I ordered a rear rack and top box for extra storage..
The only snag was that the original owner bought the scooter before she was married, and it had to be changed to her married name before she could sell it to me. That took 3 weeks for the state of IL to digest..
Well, after getting the title fixed by the original owner I picked it up this week.. I changed tires with Double A's assistance (ok, he drank beer and watched
) and last night I installed the rear rack and top box..
I'm ready for touring!!!

And a use for something I had laying around..
I'm planning on doing some touring with the little sucker, and will post some photos as the trips come along..
