I have gotten that "thing looks awesome" on track days with bigger bikes around. And I've let a few girls ride it and they love it, it definitely can bring a smile to everyones face. Its picking up girls for me :D

One of the women at work reckons I look like a Ninja turtle.
I’m thinking what’s she talking about then I realise what she means.
Green bike, rider with backpack = NINJA TURTLE 😂

Hey the cute thread is back!

Late last year before covid, I parked it at the Y to work out. It's barely street legal at all to get it there. Headlight unplugged with a sticker over it, no mirrors, race slicks, decked out in race decals, etc. When I come out 3 dudes are standing around it. The comments are like this:

OMG that thing is awesome.
That looks like soooo much fun.
Are those race slicks?
How do you get your tires to look like that? (pointing at molten rubber globs on the edge)

Not one single cute comment to be had!

But to be honest... most of the time it only sees the track and the people at the track... they know - and they want one too if they don't have one already. Then I get comments like "so, just how easy is it to drag knee on that?"

I call it cute myself...
People ask about it a lot, and I'm like "isn't she cute?"

I have my XX for when I want adrenaline, the 125 is for zipping around town between cars and over sidewalks, through closed roads, and across narrow paths. It's cute, and it's a blast.
