The Buzz #27

First, let me apologize for missing last week’s Buzz. I have been sick and I need to take a break. I have not recovered from what seems to be a Stomach Virus, but getting better every day. All my projects including “The Buzz” came to a halt and again, I apologize & thanx for your well wishes…

The First Sunday Swarm of 2023…

January is not the best time for Swarming. It was 30 degrees, but kind of Sunny. Regardless, we hoped in our 4 wheeled things and met up for Breakfast at Town Bagel in Plainview. As noted, we do not expect many to show during the Winter months, but they did show for the first Swarm of the year. It was great seeing everyone and the company was a good as the Bagels are. I shot some video and there will be an update soon as it gets published. Stay Tuned!

The First Scooter Brunch of 2023!

Our Monthly Scooter Brunches are now officially in swing. It is colder and meeting up Every Sunday in the morning is not always convenient or comfortable.

Yamaha Update…

A recent look at Yamaha’s Website shows a noticeable lack of the S-Max in the US lineup. The S-Max is smaller version of the X-Max (Pictured above). The X-Max has been a powerhouse of sales and popularity here in the states and around the globe. The bigger brother to both of these is the T-Max. It is in the 600cc range. It was discontinued in the US a few years ago. We are a “Bigger is better” Type of country, but the T-Max was besides somewhat complicated, it was also expensive. This writer thinks the X-Max threads the needle so well that its smaller and larger sibling are not needed. I mention price. The X-Max is a bargain. For the same price as 150cc Vespa, you get a 292cc Highway capable Scooter of the highest quality. A 300cc Vespa is close to $10,000 and more. Not everyone is looking for a retro style with the European style. We highly recommend the Yamaha X-Max as a vary capable alternative.

Thank you all for the well wishes & Scoot On…

    A couple of years ago Bill Leuthold of MV rode his xmax from Florida to Maine. Then across Maine, Vermont and into to NY before heading back to his home on Florida. Seems like interstate travel to me on a 300cc scooter/
