Joy! Joy! New Scoot + Pics!
And I LOVE it!
Merge the Buddy's fit and fun with the smooth fuel-injected quietness of the little C3 and you get the Honda Elite 110!
It has turned out to be my "perfect scooter"!
Anyway, thanks to the wonderful folks at Honda of Florence Kentucky I was able to get the scooter home to Ohio. Not only did they transport it, but they gave it a thorough check over once I rode it to the shop from the seller's house. They even put a "pigtail" on it for me to use on the battery tender.
This is one awesome dealership and I am now a loyal customer!
Anyway, once I got it home I went over it and wound up adding some fresh oil, fresh coolant, and adding Seafoam (ta da!) to a fresh tank of premium gasoline.
Then I rode it and encountered bunches of people who stopped me and wanted to know all about the scooter! This has never happened to me before.
I got many compliments and one older gentleman is now going to try to find one for himself because he says he'd like to "ride it to coffee" at the local McDonald's in the morning!
I rode it to the Autozone to get some oil and coolant and the guy came out and admired it and asked a bazillion questions and then went inside with me and spent about 20 minutes helping me pick out "just the right oil and coolant" according to Honda's standards. It was amazing!
I even had a guy on a motorcycle trail me and stopped me and wanted to know what kind of scooter it was and said it was a beautiful bike!
I'm not kidding, guys! It was fun but actually kind of weird, ya know?
After I came home for supper I took it out for a little late night spin around 11pm. Just wanted to ride it again so desperately.
I haven't felt this way about a scooter since I got my very first Ruckus in 2006!
It is THAT exciting to me!
Sunday update: took it on a 30 mile ride on some local back roads, ending in it's first trip to the grocery store...
Under seat storage full of groceries, basket brimming over, little green tote bag hanging on the front hook with more goodies!
Ride report to follow soon...
