I had a 2009 kymco People 150..but decided to go smaller and use locally.
It has been raining, so haven't had a lot of chance to use it, since I got it a couple days ago. I did however, manage to take the odometer from 2 miles to 13 miles. It is not de-restricted yet, but will get it done later on in the break in period. So far I am very pleased with the scooter..
BTW: New to forum also..this is my first post.

You're going to love it a lot more when the washer in the header is removed and the spacer in the variator

Well, I've exceeded the 67 years by a bit...I will be 81 in September. I have inched the miles up to 35 today, and I am very pleased with the scooter and it's performance with one caveat...hill climbing. Of course, I weigh about 200, but still I would like a bit more on the hills. I am in hopes that when I get it derestricted, it will gain some. Am I wrong in hoping for better hill climbing when it is derestricted ?

Got you beat by 3 years. I'll be 84 in early September. Derestricted you'll do an honest 40 mph on the flats. Hill climbing ability is actually quite good. I live in a hilly south Seattle neighborhood and I'm able to scoot up the hills without a problem. But, you'll like your scooter a lot more if you get it derestricted now. No need to wait for it to be broken in. Start enjoying it now.

Thanks Bill, that is encouraging, and any help I can get on hill climbing will be most welcome.
...And BTW...congrats on your still going strong at 84..here's hoping you enjoy many more riding years.

I have about 150 miles on my RH now, and it seems to be running much better and with more power than when I started at 2 miles.

I'm at a bit over 250 miles now, and getting ready to change the gear oil, however my scooting is delayed for a few days with the obstinate, rainy weather we are having now.

Weather broke..now over 300 miles and liking my Roughhouse more every day.
As mentioned elsewhere, I am short legged and the stock Roughhouse seat height is 31". I bought a low profile seat from Scooterworks, which drops seat height by 1&1/2 "...all is well..much better fit.
