Went in to pick up parts for the ruckus so I can get it tuned up this weekend and started perusing the showroom to see what was in stick. Sat on a couple of Can-Am Spiders for shits and giggles and noticed a couple of 2013 Mets in the showroom. I didn't think anything of it.

Much later at dinner I mentioned to my wife the Metropolitans and how much of a pain in the ass her Kymco, less than 500 miles, has become. She tells me "Oh, can we go look?"

Half an hour later we tell my salesman (same guy selling me the Grom, my Ruckus, and the Kymco) that we are trading the Kymco for a new white Met tomorrow afternoon. Now this is after we rip the cardboard off the case holding two unmolested Mets.


i better get a BJ for this.

We have guys just under 200lbs pushing +60mph on 49rs, tuning has come a long way in the past couple years
