 Post subject: How many out there still riding your 125Vino (year)(miles)?
PostPosted: Wed May 20, 2015 7:23 pm 
Hi folks, Just starting a thread to see how many are still using you Vino 125's. Mine is a 2009 that I just turned 1870 miles. My wife got it from a co-worker that bought it new and only put 845 miles on it in over 4 years. I put 1,000 miles on it last summer and probably better than that this year.
What year and how many miles for you folks?



................ I guess...................

Bought mine new in October, 2006. I got 12,000+ miles on it and ride it when I can. I have no plans of selling it. It still runs like a well oiled sewing machine. My daughter just graduated from college and was looking for a scooter of her own because she rode mine frequently and has just got a new job out of town. We found a blue 2008 Vino 125 on Craigslist. Always garaged, showroom condition, 350 miles and ran perfectly for $1200. Got a windscreen ordered for it. My only problems with mine were 1) a rear tire blowout at high speed. Scary! 2) Just recently my exhaust bolt broke. Caught it before it did any further damage and put the Arizona Vino fix on it. The fix is in the files section of the Yahoo group.

Thanks Hank. I think our Vino is here for the long haul too. I just can't see letting a good thing go. Makes a great little tool at the camp grounds too for supply runs and just plain fun.

I am riding mine daily. A 2008 125 with 8,600 miles on it. Front end got bent in collision with drunk idiot a couple years back. Did the repairs myself with few tools and it has been performing well ever since. No mods but keep wanting to change exhaust for better air flow and faster speeds. Most of my tools were stolen so I haven't done anything major to increase speeds. It easily starts every day and I will ride it until it turns to dust.
