Still working on showing up for the rally, but I did get a good break today that may help.  Len your welcome to play with my 09 TMAX assuming that it's the bike I bring.  My DN-01 is in the shop for a computer issue and the FJR isn't practical for a Maxi-scooter rally, although I've done it before.  So the TMAX has a new back tire this time and seems to be in tip top shape.

On the other hand just because I bought a TMAX doesn't mean that I can keep up with Mark.  The only way that I know that I could probably beat him is to race on a straight flat road where I get my FJR and he gets his TMAX.  In other words, I need to cheat.

BTW, for whatever it's worth Len, I've manged on many occasions to scrape floor boards on the Burgman 650s that I've owned, but I've never scraped pavement with the TMAX.  I've also scrapped my pegs many times on the FJR, so I know that I do ride pretty aggressive at times although less so then I used to.

Thanks man.  I appreciate all input and may just take you up on a bit of a ride swap.  if I play my cards right, I could be riding everyone else's T-Max's this Meet-up and never actually have a chance to ride my SWing!

I guess Suzuki and Yamaha will announce their new 2018 Scooter line up in September/October. Lots of new updates since most manufacturers are preparing their bikes for Euro4 emissions. Should be very interesting.

Welcome from Nova Scotia !

The local evening news here, general concludes with an interesting story.  Last night it was about an extravagant football stadium in Texas, a high school stadium.  It was well suited to any of the major colleges.  No expense speared.

Glad things went well but PLEASE follow EVERY instruction on post op care.

and...

Yup... time's a comein' when we're all going to have to get the eyes updated. I'm holding out for a 16x9 UHD camera with the 3D option.

I just bought a 2016 piaggio 350i BV sport   and it came with full syn. oil in it , did your X 10 come with full syn. oil in it too,. I have not tried the ABS yet , came close the other day on gravel road,  down hill gaining speed and hit deep loose gravel,  sure makes the rear end pucker up,.  the scooter stayed up thank the lord!!!

Congrats on the new ride! I think you'll find that the 33Hp delivered by that 330cc engine will serve you well.

Yea, mine came with an Italian brew called iRide. As it seemed to keep that round thing pumping and the heat down I kept using it. To be honest, though, I don't think it makes a lot of difference which brand you use as long as it can take the wear and tear of 7kRpMs.

Ditto on the get it checked.  Due to family history I had my 1st biopsy at 50 and 6 years ago had one that said uh oh.  Had prostate out, no spread to lymph nodes which is not uncommon once it moves out of the prostate, and have been clean since.  As one of my docs put it, Mr. Finger really is your friend.

Well, I won't tell what the doc refers to himself as, as it's not quite appropriate for this forum, but he's a funny guy.  Although mine was classified as advanced, it was found that it was still contained.  They didn't recommend surgery in my case, though.  Said it was age related and they don't like to do the surgery on patients over the age of 70 due to an increased chance of throwing blood clots.  He said that it was a 1 in 10 chance, and I didn't like those odds.  If it were 1 in a hundred or 1 in a thousand, I might have been convinced to do the surgery, but the doc said it was too risky due to the size of the tumor, and they didn't want to risk possibly not getting 100% of everything.  In any case, I'm happy with how things have been going.

I did the same thing,Phil. All the way out there I saw signs for the Worlds Biggest Rocking Chair. I never saw it. Then, when I stopped at the Worlds Biggest Truckstop on the way home, I was looking at pictures on my phone and spotted my Majesty right next to.....Yep-the Worlds Largest Rocking Chair. Boy, did I feel stupid!

Thanks, good to hear I wasn't the only one. I'm thinking we were probably distracted by some more appealing sight.

Might see if they will give you an extended warranty.
Len, are you looking to replace your Swing or just add a another scooter to your stable?
For close to that price you could get a new 2015 from a Dealer who was tired of it sitting in the corner of his Motosports Toystore, collecting dust for 31/2 YEARS.

Then, put $500 into either painting it a REAL color other than Asphalt Grey, or installing a custom Body Kit from China, like my brother did on his 2012 when he dumped it...

Better front suspension, TWIN led headlamps all the time, keyless access, better windscreen, etc....

Thanks all for your responses.  

jdbrot, I believe this outfit is a repo company and they are about 8+ hours away in Quebec.  Don't think they're into the warranty business .... just selling their repo'd vehicles.  

Hey Cathy, not sure if I'd replace my SWing just yet (only 25,000 km. = 15,000 mi.) ... I'd want to see how the T-Max suits me first.  Karin is coming due for an updated scooter (hers has 62,000 km = 38,500 mi) but I'm not sure she'd like the T-Max from a luggage/carrying capacity perspective which is really important to her.  I'm sure she'd love the T-Max's handling though.

Skutorr - thanks for your comments.  These guys are trying to sell it as a near new demo but soon it will be 4 years old ... like Mark said in a previous thread he posted in, super low mileage but still ... getting longer in the tooth. Not really worried about fluids and rubber bits ... yet.

Here in Canada, dealers do not deep discount NOS like they do in the USA.  Here, dealers hang onto their inventory FOREVER to avoid taking a loss.  I guess our market is just too small and every bike counts against the dealer's bottom line.  

Question:  Is there a big difference between the 2014's and 2015/16 model years?  I don't think they brought the T-Max into Canada beyond 2014 due to low sales.
