Hi all

I was surfing around the net (mainly bike sites) when I saw a article on a Aussie site (Bikepoint) about the new BMW Maxi Scooter.

On going up to webBikeWorld, I found a more detailed feature on the scooters.

Very interesting reading and perhaps a new take on scooters. A mate of mine rides scooters due to a very bad bike accident years ago, can not bend his legs to ride "normal" bikes.

Link to article: http://www.webbikeworld.com/BMW-motorcycles/bmw-c-600/

Anyone have any thoughts?

Awww, come on drikko, look at how much fun these two are having...

How can you resist?



Actually, if you glance quickly at one of those (especially the silver one) it looks like an R1200RT

Looking at the picture, he's either a real big man, or she's a super small woman. Notice the seat filler behind her but.

From the link that Frank posted, the woman is riding the 650GT which has a larger windshield.

The guy is on the 600 Sport that has a smaller windshield.

That might be adding to the size illusion Scott.
