GixxerBillwon't wave but I like it anyway!

I just picked up a new toy to get me around town and save a little on gas. I know it's a scooter but it is a blast in town. It has a 192cc big bore kit that really gets it off the line in a hurry. I don't expect that Bill or a few others would wave if they saw me but I think it will be okay. I have some original body parts on order to clean up the look and install a fork kit to get it to handle a bit better. I have only ridden it for a few minutes but it got up to 70mph on the feeder road so highway speeds are no problem. With a little gear swap 80mph should be pretty easy. List of Mods below.

Sounds like a bit of money thrown down on a scooter. With that said, it would outrun my 250. And I would wave at ya..... While you're passing me.

Ha. The guy that built it put about as much money into it as it cost to buy new. I however got it for a pretty good price.

I used to see a guy on a scooter everyday. We always seemed to be going opposite directions down the same road day after day. I always waved at him.
