already commented on the Pampera, Charon
"the 230 sure is a good choice
and a lot less trouble than the Pampera"
my loyalty is not the point
am not loyal at all, but a bit biased
Kinzie needs an affortable mount, guess she will stick with the (ab)used KDX of a friend
but as real grits she thinks 35 degree is too cold to ride:roll: and we'll postpone the testrides, the KDX owner wants his wife to try Kinzies TTR ...
other than that
we only have one GasGas dealer, one non-rush-hour away, on the other side of town, and we already had a cat fight, he does not even have a Pampera on the floor, why should he, women are to be kept in the kitchen, barefooted and pregnant @#$%
don't know if I like the new Pampera, I loved the original Frankenstein playbike the Spaniards built as a joke during lunchbreak, the 250 weighted 171lb, she'd bottom on both ends on a bumpy straight, but was close to indestructable and the engine was superb (the 320 was a piect of trash, tho), when they civilized her, changed primary gearing, tamed the engine, put a battery and turn signals on ... she lost a lot of the fun factor
