2003 Yamaha Zuma Reader Feedback

The intern ventured off with the scooter for a weekend, read on for what came out of the experience...

What was the title of that cheezy 80's love song- "I want you to want me?" I felt that was what the Zuma was singing to me as I motored around the streets of south Los Angeles. I really wanted to love it back, but the chemistry just wasn't flowing; sorry baby, but I need my space- nothing personal or anything.

There has been a soft spot in my heart for scooters for years. My first encounter with the species occurred at the age of 11 on a Honda Spree back in the heyday of those machines. It was an experience that left me feeling like a stud and hoping that my awesome prowess at controlling the beast had impressed the cute blonde who was (hopefully) observing every one of my studly moves...

So did I succeed in rediscovering that studly feeling with the Zuma? What do you think of it? Rant, rave and cavort below.
