'17 Buddy Eclipse 125cc

After a nasty Oklahoma winter, I had major thoughts about selling my 2017 Buddy 125 Eclipse. When spring came around, I continued to leave it sitting in the garage, collecting dust. Yesterday I was met with a beautiful day, and decided to pull it out of storage and break out my car washing supplies in order to get good photos for a Craigslist sale. Once I finished drying it off, I set out for a quick spin around the neighborhood, which led to taking a nice, long ride around the lake that is close to my house. I ended up staying out until after sunset! It was in that moment that I decided to keep my scooter and get some more joy out of it. After all, it has less than 400 miles on it. Feels like I'm just now breaking it in!

Has anyone else ever experienced something like this? I had pretty much decided to get rid of my Buddy, but the fun I had when I decided to hop back on completely changed my mind. I think I'll hang on to her for a little longer, or at least until I decide to upgrade. Very Happy

Life without a scooter would be hard - and not nearly as much fun. Wink

Don't know about Oklahoma winters, but at the end of a long, Minnesota winter Joy and Happiness can seem like remote, faded memories. To ride the scooter and just get outside without freezing or falling on ice seems amazing.
You have a really nice looking scooter. Riding a scooter is much more fun than driving, I'm baffled more people do not ride them.

This very thing happened to me a week ago while I was prepping my Burgman 400 for sale except I ended up selling it since I have 2 other scoots. Since them I’ve been missing it and looking at cruiser motorcycles Very Happy
