PCX150

THE NEXT BIG PROJECT THIS FALL IS THE NEW SCOOTER.  I PUT THIS OFF ALL SUMMER, BECAUSE IN THE HORRIBLE HEAT THE SCOOTER WOULD HAVE JUST SAT THERE ON THE PORCH. KINDA LIKE BUYING A SNOWBLOWER IN JULY IN WISCONSIN.

I’VE HAD IT SCOPED OUT FOR MONTHS, AN ITALIAN MADE HONDA SH150i. I’VE READ EVERYTHING ON THE INTERNET AND EVEN HAD PICTURES ON THE BLOG OF MARY AND I SITTING ON ONE AT THE DEALER IN LAS VEGAS.

WITH THE AIRPORT RUNS TO VEGAS, WE FOUND TIME TO STOP BY THE HONDA DEALER TO CHECK ON THE NEW SCOOTER.  WE ASKED THE SALESMAN ABOUT THE SH150i , AND HE SAID, OH YA, WE HAVE ONE RIGHT OVER HERE.  AS SOON AS WE BOTH SAW THE SCOOTER WE REALIZED IT WASN’T THE RIGHT ONE.  WELL, EXPLAINED THE SALEMAN, HONDA DROPPED THE SH150i AND REPLACED IT WITH THE PCX150. 

THEN HE WENT INTO THE SALES PITCH, NEW, IMPROVED, MORE STORAGE, BETTER WIND RESISTANCE, BETTER GAS MILEAGE, LIGHTER, BETTER TOP END SPEED, AND ON AND ON.  OK, GET TO THE BOTTOM LINE.  THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THE NEW AND IMPROVED SCOOTER IS PRICED $1,000.00 …..LESS !!! 

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  FIRST I BUY MY RETIREMENT TRAILER ON THE MOUNTAIN FOR $5,000.00 LESS THAN EXSPECTED AND NOW MY NEW SCOOTER IS GOING TO BE $1,000.00 LESS?   HOW CAN THAT BE?

CAN I GET IT IN RED?

Uh, buying scooters is a lot like buying boats.... You get one foot itus..... I just need one one foot longer....

My first scooter was a 200, and it didn't quite keep up with the traffic if I got on the highway... About 60 as a top end... So then I got a 650.... And now I have a 650 for Kansas and a 650 for Arizona.... And of course the fellows I ride with have Goldwings.... And I can't keep up anymore....

So like boats, you always need one just a little bigger.... Have fun on the new scoot, and please wear a helmet...
