    I'm not one for cliches, but the Yahama Majesty is truly King of the Road. In the Uk the Majesty is no longer produced, the alternative is the Xmax Interstate cruising is not an issue and my mileage ranges from MPGs. Jan 27, Oddometer: I have owned a few scooters and find them more practical for in town commuting.

    Yamaha Majesty Super Commuter Review | Jinjaninjauk's Blog

    My first bike in was a Honda cc scooter and in those days, that was one of the largest sizes of engine you could get for a scooter. It sadly passed away in a head on collision while on holiday in Berwick upon tweed. In I managed to save up for my first big bike — the Honda Deauville tourer — this bike taught me a valuable lesson in what bike not to ride. I traded it in for a Yamaha Xmax maxi Scooter which was very light weight however it was not quite powerful to get me up to speed on the motorways.

    So I decided in June of that I needed a new bike which was fully automatic with no gears, a bike that was not too heavy to manoeuvre, a bike that would keep me dry in the wettest Scottish riding weather possible, and did not have any dirty oily exposed parts.

    The answer was to purchase a modern maxi scooter. I spent weeks researching different machines — I got the brochures laid out all over the coffee table — I read up on their specifications and features, it became almost a pleasurable form of meditation. I narrowed my search down to two Japanese models — the Suzuki Burgmann and the Yamaha Majesty The MJ has a very different design from a conventional motorcycle which means that someone of my build can manoeuvre this machine with ease.

    The wheels are smaller than that of a motorcycle which helps keep the seat height down. I remember the excitement of riding this bike off from the dealership on the first day. I was aware that the controls of this machine are different to that of a conventional motorcycle. I had to remember that the left hand lever was a brake and not a clutch and that my feet did not have to move to change gear.

    I found it odd that when I came to the end of my journey, all I needed to do was turn off the ignition key. The advantage of a fully automatic bike are evident when riding in town — you are constantly starting and stopping at traffic lights and junctions so it was a pleasure not to have to constantly painfully pull on a clutch lever at every stop, as I would have with previous manual motorcycles.

    Because there are no gear changes, I find that I can pull away from a total stand still, fast, if I need to. Inevitably, living in Scotland, I would experience riding in the rain on the MJ. I have so far been very impressed with the weather protection of this bike. I have now found that if I have better quality waterproofs and waterproofed gloves, I can travel on the MJ in the heaviest downpour and I will get to my destination completely dry.

    I bought my MJ for Business and pleasure. Very often I have to attend business networking events and have meetings with clients and I have to look professional. I can now turn up to events in full suit and tie and no one would ever know that I had travelled in bad weather on two wheels. I can open up the seat and store a laptop and large leather briefcase. Due to the weather protection of this bike, I can arrive at business meetings completely dry no matter how heavy the rain has been, with no dirty oil stains on my trousers.

    For Video or Photography shoots in town, I can place my camera bag in the boot or alternatively in the top box. I can attach my Tripod bag to the hand rails on the seat. However, I discovered to my surprise that more of my female friends have expressed interest in going for bike rides on the MJ. I have taken friends for short bike rides and I get much pleasure from letting another person share the experience travelling on a motorcycle.

    I always take a compact camera with me on my bike rides and add them to my facebook motorcycle diary albums. Very often I like to ride the MJ down to the coast at Crammond and take photographs.
