Never thought I'd be able to contribute to this thread as my mom has always been against bikes and said none of the family would ever have one. Somehow, her opinion flipped earlier in the year. I have no personal contributions but here are my brothers and dads
Brother picked this up a few months back and loves driving it daily ...
Dad has actual gone through a couple in the last month or so but has landed here ...
No... I see yours back there... behind you dad's :)
Seriously though... NICE scoots!
It's true. You don't "ride" one of those babies. You "drive" it!

My weekend trackday setup. Don't wanna sleep on the ground, and the wife comes along and flags as a cornerworker on the course...
And trackdays owned another fairing set, so here's aftermarket set #2:
Track Day photo shoot. (the photog ended up shooting our wedding later that year). Bike, Jeep, and trailer in the background...
And now she's sadly back to the orginal fairings. I taught myself how to fiberglass and fixed them back up. Yeah, she's got some rash and isn't beautiful to look at anymore, but I call her my "Dirty Girl". She's paid for and I don't want a bike payment. Plus since I bought the boat in April, the bike's been quite neglected...
For me it's snowboarding every weekend at Meadows and occasionally taking out the locked and loaded Jeep Rockcrawler for a run or two at Tillamook State Forest...

For those unaware, Cody wrecked his a couple months ago... Wish he'd been wearing his leathers, or at least his Joe Rocket Jacket, but instead slid down the road on his back in a T-shirt. Make sure your stuff is tied down well! Lunch cooler and sweatshirt were under a cargo net on the back seat and somehow both ended up in the rear wheel and locked it up. He rode it a couple times after he and dad fixed it and sold it. Been riding cruisers since, and wants one of those now.

i laid mine down once..luckily it was a day i wore my icon jacket..only real mark was a nice gash in my hip..nothing a little stop at walmart couldnt fix haha
never laid the streetbike down, but I did hit a tree that was laying across the road coming out of a curve at ~5:30-6:00 in the morning. It was shortly before a stopsign, so at least i wasn't going too fast. I hit it in the ONE spot there were no branches facing me to spear me, and got flung off the right side. My thigh hit hte tree adn I flipped over it nad walked out of it...never even hit the ground! Just stained my jeans and forearm on my jacket a green color from the moss or whatever on the tree. Thankful!!!
