    Thanks Jack, good looking big scooter. I wonder where you would find one here?
    I saw a cool looking red Rouser at McDonald's today, I like the looks. I put a fatter tire on my Nuovo rear wheel and ended up with a blown interior, I guess the tube expanded with the extra room, so I went tubeless. I think I will pursue a Rouser.

    Cebu or Bacolod would be my bet for closest location. motorcyclephilippines website would be a good starting point for those selling them....

    My Kawasaki Rouser 200 before I added the decals and pinstripes. In the background is the Honda 125 wave that i bought when i first got here and gave to my father-in-law.
    I have since added American and Texas flags to both sides. pinstriped it in white, and added a Japanese "saying" on the front windscreen. I can't post the picture of the Japanese saying because someone on this site may be able to read Japanese, but it is cute.......when people ask, I say that it says "peace and love" (it doesn't).
    For a rocket style bike, it is fast, manuverable, responsive and has gotten me out of trouble at least 4 times now.

    hahaha. Maybe because they respond slowly, they roll around without too much control, you eventually get to where you want to be but the ride is never comfortable, and when you finish the ride you'd rather leave it in the garage than be seen with it !!!:D:D:D

    Manzanita....you are sooooo very right. I think it was PatO that said earlier he could see me, the Harley biker for 45 years on a Honda Wave 125. As I said there are NO pictures of me on it.
    At least with my Rouser, I am not ashamed to have pictures taken or for my biker friends in the US to find out.
    I came here with dozens of Harley t-shirts from all over the US and world. I have given them all away to people here. They think they are great.

    And just because I like showing these, this WAS my "Big Red" in Houston Texas (and me)
    Being Texas/USA proud I had personalized license plates on it.

    Twin-Cam 88 cu.in. 1450cc, 5 speed
    Dyno tested at 93 horsepower (after modifications) - top speed "unknown"
