:rocker:I decided to go with a 2005 Yamaha Zuma Scooter.It gets 80-100 MPG !Hopefully this will help me save a little more $$$ on gas. Perfect for commuting from Glendale to North Hollywood (Work).I couldnt believe when the guy told me it had 45 miles on it! He was asking $1980 talk down to $1650.Wow what a deal.

Nice Oscar! Can you go on the freeway with that? I noticed that the speedo only shows 40 mph, but that may be fast enough in LA traffic:) Have a great trip if I don't see you before the summit. Trying to get ready for my vegas wedding on the 14th and then it on to Ouray!

I am still in talks with a dealer near here about a Honda Ruckus. They are trying to get an all black one for me.

Is there a helmet law in CA? Are you going with the full face or no?

Yup gotta put on a helmet in CA.My brother in law has a full face shoei he is going to give me & I have my moto cross Thor helmet.I guess I could use either or.I like the moto cross look better but a full face will protect you more.:bigthumb:

Wear a full face, definitely!

Safety first.Thats why I wasn't in a hurry for a 600cc yet.Def like the speed but not in a hurry to get wacked.Lost a few friends on sport bikes.

Not mine, but I've seen this happen:
You got the best year but the 123 MPG is for the 08 which have some crap emissions control stuff and about 5 less MPH.

The 05 will give you about 80 MPG, I have one I posted pics of mine in the other scooter thread.
I believe the 05 still gets over triple digits on mpg at least 110.Just need a new battery old one doenst keep the charge.Stored too long.

I hope everyone goes with a full face helmet. Landing on your face is no fun....

Oscar,

I have a 1979 200p Vespa Scooter. 60mpg and freeway legal @ about 60mph. If I could figure out how reduced pics, I would post a photo.

I am member of a SoCal Vespa/Scooter club, we do a lot of rally rides. You should ride with us.

upload them to photobucket.com and copy the image code to the thread.Let me know when you guys are planning a ride.I would love to join.:cheers:

i might have to look into a scooter..i'd totally ride one to work and around town....nice find and great price. have fun on it.
Thanks.It was ideal for me because my commute to work in only 10 miles each way on the streets.Going to be at least saving 60 dollars per week and only gas the FJ on offroading trips.:bigthumb:
