.only 2 in the USA ?
Thats the only 2 results “near me” in a 100mi search radius. Was posting to provide availability and current asking price for my area. Of course, these figures could be vastly different in other regions. This is merely for Seattle/Portland area.
I need to find some new haters...the ones I have are starting to like me.

I was in Guam yesterday, and found that the Yamaha dealer there rents Zuma 125's by the day. Here is a photo of the one I rented. I drove it all the way around the perimeter of the island on the beach road.. took most of the day and two tanks of gas. Speed limits are 25 most places and 35 on the better highways.

We hauled a load of firewood on the Cushman.

Ok, youve said it...and provided a stock photo. Does this mean theres a new addition to the MotorMike Garage?!? If so, we want pics!!!

Also, Genuine has been around a long time and there are plenty of them in my area. However, Ive never had the chance to really dig into one. Id love to hear a review about them from someone like MotorMike who knows what he’s looking at and also not trying to sell me one.
I need to find some new haters...the ones I have are starting to like me.

At this late hour, could only get a poor pic.
This scooter was abandoned at a neighbor's house.
Given to my friend Jon couple months ago minus all paperwork, but with key.
We had it running within minutes.
Jon bought a 750 Honda today, and it needs a tank.
I offered Jon a modest sum for the Buddy as he had said that he would cut it loose,
and I don't know what will become of this deal, but
I've been around Buddys enough to recognize their worth.
Have to say that Genuine did a fine job building scooters of better quality.
Not sure where the company has landed after the scooter craze died down.
I'm into this one dirt cheap, so it's anybodys guess as to what I will do with it.
Not likely that I will try to title it...just don't need a 125 to keep.
