In the SNOW.

Not a buddy, but there is a cabo in there (we own both). The quasi knobbie tire DID allow us to move in the snow, not great, but we did go anywhere we wanted.

The Genuine scooters are delivered with dry batteries. We fill them and activate them when someone buys a bike. So, they are new and fresh.

Sometimes you get a bad one.

There were over 1,000 Harleys, a handful of other bikes. And four awesome guys on two-stroke scooters :) We had a P200, a Stella, a 64 Vespa, and a Lammy.

Orrrr, just replace the petcock, they don't cost much, and sometimes they do go bad. They don't like E10 fuel too much. It can be changed without removing the tank from underneath.

However, I haven't seen one fail that was less than 8 or 10 years old. Not saying it isn't possible.

The Shinko is a good cheap tire, but they have never been known for their longevity, but the price is right ( I have them on my 50 ). I run the Michelins and get "decent" life on the sidecar, better than the shinko, but that bike still eats them . I got 2200 on the last one.
