We all know that I have scootering roots and there are definitely times I miss the twist'n'go of my little vino. I have looked at Maxi scoots in the past and unfortunately due to my current state of under-tallness, they are just too wide and too bulky for me to manage. I tried a Burgman - too big, too wide and too heavy, and it was the same was with the Suzuki. I was on the twitter sphere the other night when I came across a tweet from visordown.com about a new Honda 750cc maxi scoot, which I think is only available in Europe at this point. It has the styling of a motorcycle and 17inch motorcycle tires with only the barest whisper of a step through - which there really isn't. It is narrower than most maxis and handles more like a motorcycle, see the review on http://www.visordown.com/road-tests-first-rides/first-ride-2014-honda-integra-750-review/24475.html (the link may not work as I was doing this on the iPad)
I think I would be extremely interested in giving this bad boy a try and I do know a lot of scooterati who are looking for more of a motorcycle styled scoot - Calling Deb of Ruckus Scooter Love blog! There is something appealing to me about this scoot. I think I would like the extra leg room that it would provide your leg is more extended on the scoot vs a motorcycle peg. At times I find shifting bothers my arthritic ankle - geez I sound like a creaky old thing. What do you think?
