Hello Thank you for accepting me, I watch your reviews for motorscooters and cycles and I take your opinions of them very seriously I recently purchased an X-Treme Scooter XB 700Li (I'm not sure if you're aware of what that is so you can find out everything about that bike if you go to WWW.X-TremeScooters.Com) I like it and I want to buy another one but I'm not sure if that's a good idea there are some videos on "Youtube" but nothing extensive I was wondering if you guys could do a review of that bike and give me and countless other viewers your overall opinion about this bike like I said "I like it" but before I buy another one I would really like your professional opinion on this subject.

Mado, most of us are m/c riders.  We do not have anything against scooters & you will probaly not some will reply to your Thread & find that they also have a m/c as well.  To some quite dedicated to scooters.

Near the end of WWII I had purchased a number or well used Brigs & Stratton to Johnston Iron horse motors, as used on farms for so many uses like NO ELECTRICITY.  Along with a two Villiers Powered 125cc bikes, no longer main, & made up a number of sort of usless scooters, but the oen with the Villiers power plant & three speeds in the cog box, WELL believe me it went toot-sweet.

I also moved to Banff National Park in Alberta to set up a sport shop basically for mountaineers & skiers.

Still I spotted a number of mopeds to scooters of 125cc from Jawa, NSU Perima to Lambretta & all seemed to have problems & asked me to make the changes.

Then in the 80s I was in this Okanagan Valley to notice a Yamha 125cc scooter, with electric start & ease of shifting.  I asked if I could take if to a short run as I wanted to hit the ex-railway to street car tracks & the scooter did not almost go out of safe travelling.  For the Spanish to the German ones were TERRIBLE for if you relaxed your hands the front wheel would snap full lock to the left or right.  The JPN makers had made the correction.

My reason of keeping track what is on the market for in this country people are purchasing 49cc two-stroke that cannot travel on the Hwy 97 at 80 to 100KPH NOR can the climb the steep hills for the many towns are sort of on a mountain side MEANING so many homes are up steep climbs & the 49cc is NOT the answer to someone without a DL or LP which means also compulsory liability insurance.  Any thing about 49cc is with the above costs to demands by the insurance prople along with the RCMP.

So a number of 49cc scooters have been leaning against homes, or fences for the past year or two as they need MORE POWER that cannot be obtained for many reasons, which is sort of menioned above.  A flat terrain ONLY then the 49cc scooter is good.


Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

If this scooter is a "Hybrid" where's the exhaust pipe? Do they call it a hybrid because you can run electric or pedal it? Small electric scooters suffer from no range and no speed.

I'm not sure but there is no exhaust pipe and who cares the word "Hybrid" just sounds cool and to the untrained eye it looks like a Super powered Motorscooter but in actuality it's just a Super powered bicycle Ha,Ha, Ha and on top of that the girls love it and wait till' I hook it up with LED bulbs(No it was not built with LED bulbs cheap i know) an extra HUB motor and battery with 64 volt controller to give it more power so I can at least get on the Highway with it I will have the sexiest E-Bike in the world!!!

I have made this mistake a few times of NO SUBJECT.  So if you want to question or make a comment then best to have a COMMENT

Well that's a different flavor of Spam. Charming colour, delightful bouquet, but tart on the tongue.
