Yesterday the better half finally got on with me to go shopping. The trip wasn't long but we did a bit of stop - shop - and go so she had a good chance to practice climbing on and stepping off.

My old scoot is/was a SYM GTS 250i (RV250) and she found the seat on the X10 a bit too wide (4cm or 1.5in). As it's been over a month that she's ridden we might want to take that into account.

The back rest on the top box was comfortable and the ride was "much smoother" than the SYM.

Mounting and dismounting seemed to be a bit easier as the floorboard presented by the X10 offers a better foothold than the bar on the SYM.

Here's one of the images I posted on my initial blurp on the X10 so you can see the floorboards and backrest.


Here's the link to my 1st impressions of the X10.

Very nice pic.  That scoot is sharp looking with that brown seat.

Ok... I was going to do this over in the "Other Hobbies" section but, I guess I can do a mini-coming out here.

I used to be a professional photographer but now I just have fun with it all. http://www.imagesby.me is my web site where I put up a few of my photos from our trips. Enjoy.
