My little red Ruckus is on it's way to a new home today and I have money to put on my new future scoot, which will be the 2010 Black Honda Elite 110!
With all the emotion of saying good-bye to my Ruckus, there was the stronger desire to get a scooter that I could do longer rides on and finally really GO SOMEWHERE!
I did not cry or feel anything really except that the aggravation of fielding text messages, phone calls, and emails from Craigslist and Ebay is finally over!
Still, I'm gonna miss her...
I have chosen my future steed and it will be the Black Honda Elite 110. This after riding a Honda PCX, Yamaha Vino 125, Yamaha Zuma 125, Kymco People 150, and Genuine Buddy.
The Elite wins it "hands down" in almost all aspects: practical; comfortable; it "fits" me ergonomically; sporty-looking; low center of gravity; lightweight mid-size scoot; peppy ride; maneuverable; fast enough for me for now(up to 53mph); economical (100mpg+); roomy for hauling anything; a floorboard; OEM accessories (windshield, topcase; nearby dealer support; FUN; and it's a Honda!
With this Ruckus sale I should have my Elite in about another 2-3 weeks, if not sooner. Meanwhile I am "scooter-less", a state of being that feels weird, but I can live with it. Though it is really, really hard!
Then comes that sweet 50 mile ride home on the Elite...
