Does your Mitsubishi L300 make a strange noise? Need wheel alignment specs?

:shock: $670 for insurance???? That must be some driving record, Mario :-D That's what it costs me to insure a 650. My last 75cc scooter cost me $140/year!

But there's also the fun factor; driving a scoot can be a blast. Hope it turns out that way for you.

At least I have another vehicle to drive if one needs repairs and hopefully I can upgrade to a motorcycle when the scooter dies.
I like how your plan to save money has now become a solid defensible justification to waste money. That's what living life is all about.
Absolutely! :-D It may save me money, but I have doubts. My insurance is $370, but I had to pay for the license plate and the taxes on the scooter, so it added up to $670. Next year's cost will be less, but that's assuming it lasts that long. It's better than my van's insurance which is $2800! :shock:

$670 seems steep, I have a 2009 BWS and I pay ICBC $142 for 6 months.

It hits 75kph easily and can get up to 80 on a moderate downhill thanks to an upgraded exhaust.
I think it was put on sideways.
