The subforums by geographical location could do with the addition of Africa, New Zealand and South America.

I can set up the additional forums, that's no big deal. Out of the gate I didn't want to set up too many regional forums to keep things squared away. I figured once there was an interest or a demand i'd build them on the fly.

tena koutou katoa...hello all

i'm on the north shore, auckland, new zealand.

have had a black madass50 since may2008; it was a demo with 150km (94miles).

abit lazy, pretty slow, takes forever to warm up, but oh, so much fun. all i need to do is top it up with 91octane every 100km and get it serviced every 1,000km. and it will putt along at full throttle, every time, no problem.

now just 2,200km on the odo.

yup, stock moped but had to replace tyres because the original CST had a nail in the rear. apparently carried it for many hundred kilometres before realising. :oops: didn't affect the ride at all though. amazing, eh. now wears Michelin A39 front and M45 back.

pack is a Givi T440 tank bag. RAM mount on the handle bar is for a VIO POV1 adventure-cam.

this one is always parked in the garage next to my bmw f800r. but guess which one people make a beeline for when they visit?

Just got myself a 50cc Madass on the 31st December , under 5000 miles or 800km, no idea as the bike had a new speedo, but was on the back of a horse box before, used very little. Looking at general wear and tear, I would be surprised if it has done more than 3000km or 2000miles.

My dad used to love the way people go for the odd looking car/bike first, I suspect people will walk right past the 1200GS to the Madass as well.

Hi there,

More Kiwis representing the Madass.
I'm from Wellington and I just got a 125cc red Madass. (see pics below)
Still a noob to the whole riding scene but for now I'm having a loads of fun and putting as many kms on the bike as I can.
If you're in Wellie gimme a shout ... I'd been keen to get to know more Wellington madassers.

P.S. Wanted to give a shout out to Mark and all the team at Scooterazzi in Wellington. They've been awesome and helped me a lot since the moment I decided to get one :text-+1:

some unboxing pics below. More to come as I take them.

Hi Shah ...
How do rate that Givi bag?
Is it any good.
Does it stay well attached to the bike (magnets, straps, etc)
Can you put a map or a little GPS/ mobile etc in it? I mean, does it have a transparent pocket?
Is it big enough to shore a chain?

Thanks
R

oops...sorry. haven't checked this website for awhile.

the Givi bag is very well-designed but really tiny. however it can easily store the moped manual, a cleaning cloth, my wallet & mobile phone, a lockable carribiner (for helmet), and a 250ml bottle of water. can't take a standard-size motorcycle chain though.

and yup, it has a smallish transparent pocket for a google map printout (folded, of course). perhaps an eTrex.

it's permanently strapped onto the tank, and so far hasn't tried to run away!

apologies; i'm out of the country at the moment so can't be more helpful. hard to walk around to the garage to check from 10,000km away.

cheers,
Shah

oh...flash red madass you got, btw.

and yes, Scooterazzi is very helpful indeed. Mark gives miles better service (inquiries, etc) than what i got from the dealer i bought the moped from here in Auckland. but i guess he couldn't help because he went belly-up!

LOL very nice guys. I`m running a 07 madass 50 here in Wellington.

She had a tough life, I have to admit that I have been abusing her, but she just kept running. Just put a 70cc big bore kit which I put together (off trademe, finally!) on her this weekend, with a 16 tooth front sprocket she now run no slower then 50k around hilly karori, and I`m about 105 kg..She`s really impressive now considering i`m still using the old baby carb.

Also putting some blings on her, parts are starting to break off here and there.

good to see that this thread is still alive.

anyway, my madass50 is now 6.5 years old and still starts first time. even after 2 months of non-use. splendid!
