Default Re: 2003 Yamaha Zuma Reader Feedback

Couple months ago in Bike magazine they had a VFR vs. a bunch of bikes...an all around vs. specific usage bikes...like vs. an R6 on the track, vs. a Gold Wing for touring, and vs. a Peugeot Speedfight (scooter) for commutting.



The Speedfight only lost the commutting part by like 1/100 of a second, and he got there with total ease. The VFR rider was a nervous wreck and tired from working the clutch, shifting, braking, lanesplitting carefully, etc.

The Zuma is basically a fat-wheel Jog. How could you possibly have been more impressed with the Spree than a Jog? The Jog, and likewise the Zuma, eats Sprees and spits them out the tailpipes, and it lasts for twenty years if fed good oil. I still have a Jog for emergency use while traveling, and it's STILL a great scoot! I even did Main Street with a 250 pound passenger on the back of the Jog during bike week after the Harleys were loaded and tied down, receiving inumerable thumbs up , and one comment of "that's child abuse"!

Loved your review, just bought a 2003 Zuma, love it. I own a '00 ZX9R and a 2002 HD Road King. Too many of your readers are unfortunately single minded. I love all forms of motorcycling period. Each of my purchases serves a different niche. The Zuma is my in town & campground scoot. Works perfect for that. P.s. Now my wife is riding the Zuma around town and she is beginning to understand the appeal of driving a motorcycle. Ahhh the freedom, the rush!!!

To whom it may concern (you know who you are!) Open your mind and quit your complaining! Take out your "superior" motorcycle, shut your mouth and impress me by putting on a 1000 mi in a weekend! ie, shut up and ride!

We get the point, Cook. You don't like scooters, I assume because that vestigal, shrivelled weiner you call a penis is so small. Now shut up about it.

Glad to see your learning to behave yourself, Cook, but I still say you've probably got a tiny weiner.

With 51 years of riding under my belt, I found it interesting. Think I'll get a Vino 125 and see how much I can tweak out of it! Afetr all, I DID tweak my Excelsior Henderson into an 11 second dyno bike, beating all comers including a Hayabusa at Phil Peterson's HD dyno drags.
