Do any of you folks have any new/used bikes on your radar in the up and coming new year?

Eric, I know I am good for awhile.  I took your words to heart last June, when you said my SilverWing was getting a bit long in the tooth. ;) I have gathered a few items to add on to my Goldwing this winter. Or should I say Bob.  He has a a couple of things to add to his bike as well. 

Eric, thanks for asking.

One thing to really like about JB is the diversity of his interests.

I've been thinking about the little Yamaha Smax 155 and/or a Honda Rebel
300... Not sure about a new "older" model 17,18 ,19 or the latest improved
2020 Rebel 300... with ABS maybe. Realistically, I would need to sell off a
a disassembled Big Ruckus and all but one of my 4 Reflex scooters. (I have
already sold the Silverwing 600ABS scooter... Last year I only rode it a few
hundred feet to have air put in the front tire) It was tired of being a garage
queen so I let her go... got a decent price for it too.

There's only one scooter I'd change my 2018 Honda Forza 300 for, and that's the new 2020 Yamaha Tricity 300 three wheeler. A couple of the guys in our touring group have also shown interest since in it since Yamaha introduced it at last years EICMA show in Milan.

I've watched various YouTube clips on it and keep looking at the Urban Mobility section of Yamaha UK's website to see what the price will be, and when it's expected to be in the dealers showrooms. So far there's been no more info.

Guess I'm getting old. Nothing out there that I cannot live without. I'll stick with what I have.

I might consider a Yamaha Nmax if only they would bring it over here. Why does Yamaha have 2 155cc scooters anyway?

 Looks almost exactly like the old BSA Lightning I had many years ago.  I had to spend too much time wrenching and chasing electrical gremlins, to keep it, but it was pretty.
