The Tomos Streetmate is literally the most awful moped I have ever ridden, in every fucking way.

10/10 I would ride a Vino before I even considered a Streetmate.

Re: is the entire scooter community full of idiots?

Mopeds are scarce around here..never see or here of tomos or maxis or such.. i bought the vino that had been sitting up for few years for 200 put a battery ,cleaned the carb and changed out the fuel lines and it has been super dependable..smooth too...

Re: is the entire scooter community full of idiots?

there's definitely no arguing why scooters replaced mopeds for the general public, generally better in most regards, they've got a place but my reasons for loving mopeds are not the reasons people would buy a new scooter

The StreetMate is a large, comfy ride, and if you don't enjoy the ride of a StreetMate, you're probably a little guy that can't reach the pedals, OR it was a trashed bike.. LOL!

The Streetmate has more plastic than a shitty TaoTao, it has less power, and has the most contrived wiring schematic of any two-wheeler I've ever worked on. Also, the seat is a hard piece of un-ergonomic trash.

I would rather own no moped, than only be able to own a Streetmate.

Re: is the entire scooter community full of idiots?

BE an uninformed fool................... more for me! LOL! The seat is even more comfortable than a Motomarina Sebring's and that's saying something. You must have rocks in yer pockets!

As for the plastic, that's just trim. There is a LOT of steel in a StreetMate. They are heavy.

Re: is the entire scooter community full of idiots?

back when i was a newb, i used to get fired up over the whole scooter/moped thing. fuck that. puch maxi = scooter. tao tao = junk. yamaha zuma = awesome. harley davidson dyna wide glide FXDWG (1450CC) = MOPED.

words don't mean anything and i like to antagonize people.

Everything is moped if you have enough love in your heart!

Yeah, you're just wrong.

And just because there's steel there, and it's heavy, doesn't means that the quality of the plastic is avoidable.

You can absolutely horde all the streetmates. No one will miss them.

Re: is the entire scooter community full of idiots?

No, you're wrong as usual. My StreetMate is a 2005 with a LOT of miles on it and the plastic is perfect. The lid on the faux tank still loxks and holds my 1.3 gallon extra tank along with other goodies.

You are mistaken.

Your 1 Streetmate does not really equate to the dozen or so that I've serviced in the last couple years.

Maybe in the Sunny Valley Retirement Community it holds up well, but when exposed to weather and actual use, they are trash.

IN FACT, I would rather ride a Revival. AND I HATE REVIVALS.

EDIT: Also got to put in that I put a few miles on my Lambretta yesterday and loved it. 10x more stable than a streetmate and handles NYC potholes and road work with ease. (edited)

I was there for that encounter, can confirm that's exactly what the guy said. I had to lay down after that.

Don, stop playing. You ain't buying no more mopeds.

You gotta save up for the bunker to hide from progress.

Nope, looking at one to buy with low miles and almost stock.
