Chinese 250 scooter still runs great and going on the 7th year of owning. I ride mostly around town but do ride long distance too. My last journey was from Holt Summit, MO to Quincy IL... I will do some riding this summer too.
I did not do a round trip there... I had put on a new front tire and moved back to Missouri. I own 2 rear new tires for my scooter, but in the move, could not afford change rear tire and pay to move. So left it in Illinois 2 weeks and went to got it. I am on SSDI, get a fair amount, but still price of living, rent, medical bills, ect.. I would have rode it back, but to it snow and ice covered the ground. lol.. So it was a bit chilly when first moving. 24 degrees out. It is going on 7 years, since buying the scooter new, so it is not good to press luck. It has started there, after a month of sitting, in 26 degree weather. It was last started, 7 days ago. Can't stand 0 degree weather.. burr... I did travel about 300 miles back and forth to Marshall MO from Holts Summit MO and back.. It was in November, weather was like 65 degrees.
