Scooter Update

I was sorry to see the comment about problems with the Granturismo. Other people I know have this bike have had very few problems with it, and even the forums dedicated to it record few reliability issues. However, battery problems with small bikes are common. As I found the battery on my GT lasted a year with the bike being ridden every day.

If the battery is lasting only a month there is probably something wrong with the preparation of the battery, in that its initial charging wasn't done properly, or there is something wrong with the bike electrics. A new battery should be covered by the manufacturer's warranty if the bike has been tested and is charging properly.

As for the X9 - other than a few bulbs going I have had no problems since my earlier report. It has run better and better and gets more and more fun to ride. It was definitely a very good buy.
