is that a 150 or a 250? Two seats, that's gotta be a 250, doesn't it? You get that online or at a store?

I know it sounds unbelievable, but that scoot in the pic is a Honda Silver Wing, which is 592cc. My other scooter is a Chinese 250 (244cc) but looks similar.

The S Wing tops out around 110mph. The 250 will do 65-70, tough to tell because the speedo is very wonky.

592?? Holy crap dude! I could never go 110 on little scooter wheels... god bless you brother, you're a better man than I am.

Would you recommend one of those Chinese jobs? How's the quality compared to the Honda?

I will post a pic of the 250 soon.

I like it a lot. It's probably more fun to ride than the big scoot. It's very nimble and zippy. It's not able to go on the interstate, the swing does that easily. The brakes suck on the 250 which can be scary. It's carbeurated and the swing is fuel injected. But it is super easy to work on and adjust the valves.

I'd probably recommend something fuel injected instead. They made a zillion of the Chinese 250 Honda clones so it's actually easy to find parts. But it's a bit fussier. The real Honda starts on the first crank every time and it's 10 years old.
