I say "again" because I'm referring to the first time I used that as a blog entry title, when I obtained my pink 50cc scooter. Although Yzma the scooter has been faithful to me over the past two and a half years, she's been feeling her age lately and so I bought a new one on Tuesday.
The difference in power is amazing; I feel much safer with this bike. She's also much more comfortable than Yzma, which is definitely important for my middle-aged back and rear end.
For the first 300 km I have to drive under 60 k/h to break in the engine, but I'm itching to see what she can do.
Pricing here is different than in the US. The price I was initially quoted is the price I paid out-the-door. Tax is already included. The quoted price also included:
- License and registration
- 2 years of accident liability, fire, and theft insurance
- 300 km and 1,000 km oil change and maintenance
- VIN engraving for theft identification
- New helmet, tire lock, and floor mat.
I'm really jazzed about my new bike! I hope to take an open road journey next Wednesday during the Tomb Sweeping holiday. Stay tuned.
