Default No more maxi-scoots...

I finally heard an alternative description, other than maxi-scoot, for these
fine pieces of machinery that we all ride.......

...Sport Utility Motorcycles....

What say ye all?

Think not. SUM suggests competency off the pavement. From reading past posts, the burgy is barely adequate off the roadway.

I coined Sport Utility Bike (SUB) a while back and then seemed to go over well with some people...you can use it if you like

I believe that description is overly generous. Traction is horrible in grass and dirt in my experience.

Upon reflection, they are sporty, and have a good amount of utility. Ergo, it'll work.
