Pics of your Buddy

Post by smarkum »

I looked for a "Post pics of your Buddy" thread and didn't see one . . . so I thought I'd try and start one.
I'll go first.
Just got the reflective stickers put on this afternoon. . . They really reflect well!

I hope to snap some decent pics of my Buddy outdoors sometime soon . . . but until then, show me yours. . . :shock:

I'd love to.. but no cash, probably leaving the country, and it looks much worse now after 2 crashes. Either going to save for a buddy 150/170i or a ninja 250/500.
for all the crap I've put it through... got to say buddy's are durable as hell

Mine with the new stripes on her. I still have a bit to do to customize Serenity a little further, but right now I'm more focused on riding than cutting vinyl and painting :lol: Really, I think these stripes are going to be temporary anyway, I just didn't want her rolling around town naked. Now that the grass and trees are beginning to turn green again I'll have to take her somewhere nice for some beauty shots with the nice camera :wink:

All of the Buddies posted so far are looking pretty snazzy! Good work everybody!
Smarkum, I like the old style kick-scooter in the background of your second pic. I had a red one just like it when I was a kid!

Here's one I just took but didn't get to use for Scooter tag.

BTW that's my new dog paw seat cover from Cheeky Seats! Great products and service from them.

Not as pretty as the blue bonnets, but spring is blooming here too! I'm not sure my allergies would have allowed such a nice pic with those bonnets :shock:

Oh yeah...alas, due to surgery, I will most likely have to sit that one out. At the most, I might be able to synch up with them, and ride the last section to the gymkhana and bbq and such...

Before I got the Blackjack, I could've picked up a 125 red Buddy with all the chrome for a nice price, but couldn't swing it. To this day, I still dig how red Buddys look. Always do sharp...
....wonder why they never did a dark blue one? I know a member here painted his dark blue and it looked super cool

WOW Giovanna :shock: That is P I N K !

Welcome to the boards. . . that scoot looks very shiny . . . get out there and ride! And, stop by and get some lime green riding trousers and an orange jacket and you will NEVER -- EVER-- hear "I just didn't see her coming."
:lol:


Image

I finally took some time to stop by and snap some pics of my Buddy with some wall art! There is a lot more I would like to see. . . and I will, but it may have to wait until Fall and cooler temps. Whew. Its been HOT.

The reflective stickers came from a website called Street Glo. They are VERY reflective. I will take a pic of my helmet later. It has the reflective all over it too! In my opinion, one can never have enough reflective material!

I don't know who the artist is in the pics. I always look for the sig, but sometimes I cannot see it, or make it out.

I am going to take some better pics for the first pics in this thread. . . how embarrassing! But, they will still show the reflectiveness well.

I LOVE that you put your scoot right in line with those Harleys! That might count in scooter tag for precariously parked!

Don't live in Austrailia . . . rather, Kansas. Which technically is not oz . . .but you get the drift!
