Sounds like you're north and west of me. I'm in Collingwood, NJ, across the river from Philly. I'm looking forward to a trip to the shore -- Sea Isle City, them parts north and south of there.

Good to know there's another DT rider in Jersey. Represent!

Mine is a 2008.  For a 250 it is extremely agile, smooth, with a wonderful 5 speed tranny.  So surprised that it did not prove to be popular as it remains one of my favorite riders here in Iowa.

My first scooter was a 2009 Kymco Super 8 150 that I bought late in 2010.  I now have over 30,000 miles on it and it still runs great.

I've got a 125 agility I got for $350 a while back.
Nice scoot, but the carb keeps gumming up, even with Stabil in the gas.

Nice pick, probably Kwang Yang's best creation so far. Looking forward to following your experiences with and opinions of the scoot. How eastern and how central, native to Georgia? A portion of my maternal ancestors invaded Georgia from North & South Carolina chasing land grants in the early 1800's with numerous descendants still residing there, largely Gwinnett, Forsyth, Cherokee, Dawson & Pickens counties and expanding more sparsely throughout Georgia and surrounding states.
   Hope the X-400 brings much enjoyment!

I think fate intervened. I wouldn't have her if not for the feckless and duplicitous dealer in Minnesota who decided that because I was in Georgia (among other things) my purchase of a 2009 Yamaha TMax was "suspicious" and decided to hold my cashier's check for 14 business days to "let it clear"... Cashier's checks don't "clear". They're written on the bank's account, and they underwrite the funds. So they diddled me out of the bike I'd been saving three years for. And I ended up winning. That Tmax is still on their website, unsold, while  I have a brand-spanking-new Formula 1-level bike. Faster, lighter, quicker, and did I mention, brand-spanking-new?

As far east as one can get in the state, without going as far south as Savannah. Almost in the middle of the river border with the Carolinas.   

I'm a native, born and reared here, and lived here for all but 8 of my 52 years.  2 of those in California, in graduate school, which I loved. (Wouldn't want to live there, but I loved being there while I was) and the other 6 as an overworked, underpaid, underappreciated, and rarely-listened-to Architectural Historian in the State Park system of another state. Don't miss that at all...

We ended up here, because my Great-Grandmother's third husband was a banker here. Both of her first two were railroad men, killed on the job. She married a banker thinking it would be safer, up until the point he offed himself when his bank failed. C'est l'a vie... All my ancestry before Nanna came from Santorini, in the Cycladean Aegean Isles. That's where she was born. Her family settled in Central Alabama, and most of that branch have died off, save for a few cousins spread out over the country.

Diana is everything I hoped for, and I only have one thing not to love about her: It's been hell the ruggedest mile figuring out how to mount my cup holder! And let me tell you, Stig was less than no help with this!!  I think I have it figured out, and almost all the parts are here, so it won't be long before I have that set up... Of course, I'll post pics for the mod, as usual.

Thank you!

Yeah, I got addicted to genealogy a few years back and one thing more difficult than genealogy is researching genealogy and not bothering everyone else with it. The trials and trails of your great grandmother, Santorini to Georgia; the hazards of railroading and banking, is interesting and intriguing. Most of my family leaned to the owing banks and hopping trains side so an intertwining of our families is unlikely though I have discovered many unexpected surprises.

   Bummer about losing out on the T-Max but fortunately us minority Kwang Yang owners get another rider on the forum.
Have Fun, Phil

Oh, I haven't ever done a single bit of Geneaology. All my info came directly from Nanna. I was born on her 100th birthday. She passed away at 112, lucid to the last moment, and I was her favorite. Listening to her was frequently like a history audiobook being narrated live.

I know where too many skeletons are buried in my family history, almost all of which interrupt the tree, so doing any genealogical research would be pointless.

Although, on my dad's side, we're connected to Old Peg Leg Peter Stuyvesant of Stuyvesant Heights fame in Brooklyn. He was the last Colonial Governor of New Netherlands and the guy who built the wall on Wall Street. That bit of historical trivia, along with the familial connection and $1 will get me a cup of coffee in nearly any Waffle House in North America!

I'm dearly loving my new bike, and hope that once I've got it well broken-in, that I'll be able to do some small touring on it.

Thanks, and keep in touch man!

Yep!  It's the tightest paved road I have ever ridden.  I rode it on my KLR, Versys and Super 8.  It was the most fun on the super 8.  The other bikes I was in first gear feathering the clutch on some of the uphill right handers.

I'm sure I'll be riding it again.  I'll try to let you know before I do.  It won't be this year but I'm pretty sure I'll get over there next year.

Questions?  I test road the Kymco 300 and found it a little lacking in power (single cylinder).  A member had a Kymco 300 with a side car two up, how did that perform?  After test riding the 300i no one had the 500 so I went for a used Honda Silverwing (nice power).
