Post Black Hills trip
Granted, we weren't camping, but I figured I'd share a trip we did recently.

Originally, we had 5-6 guys on Zumas and a YSR50 (with a Blaster 200 motor in it) heading out to the Black Hills. Because of work schedules and mechanical problems, we ended up with only three on the trip, all on Zuma 125's. We're looking for some more goons to go with us next year. We documented the whole trip on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/ScooterJamboree We have a ton of pictures posted and we're adding videos as we work through hundreds of gigs of shenanigans. We have one video on facebook and another on our new youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/scooterjamboree

We were out there the weekend before the blizzard hit and the weather was amazing. Next year we'll go a bit earlier to avoid the threat of bad weather.

This should give you a taste of our trip.

The 125 was enough...but I really want a 155 kit, better tires, and possibly suspension for next year.

they came out pretty good, i watched the video too.. i like how you guys stayed at the little 180 switch back for a while.. haha had to get a few up and downs out of it..

what are the cruising speeds on the 125? i noticed in the pics and video only one headlight on.. are all the american ones like that? my side by side light both come on for low and high

This is how the Zuma 125 is sold from the dealership. One headlight at a time.
Many modify the headlight circuit ... to get the two at once.
What size bulbs do you have ?? 2 x 35W ... 2 x 55W

Our charging circuit has great difficulty recharging the battery if we use the 2 x 55W setup !!

im guessing that i am using the 2x55w right now because they are brighter white... the original ones that i had before were more of a yellowish color.. neither one have had an effect on the battery though..

no no no sorry.. both my bws' are 100's, but his headlights are side by side bug eyed style same as mine.. so thats why i asked... i thought they would both be on because my wires have one plug but split to both sides.. the bws 125 here are stacked...so only the big bottom light is on... i guess i wasnt clear about that... i just thought since they were the same config they would be the same circuitry as well...
