Pacific Yamaha used to sell them. You might want to look into doing other mods at the same time, jet up, less restrictive air filter, new weights, etc.

Welcome.

Scooters are a great way to get a feel for riding in traffic without bumpers and side impact beams. I did the same thing except I just rented a scoot the odd weekend.

Riding a motorcycle with 100hp between your legs will be awesome.

yes, i cant wait until i go take my class 6, but for now i needed something to get me to and from work, and getting a scooter seemed pratical to me and fits my budget. im glad that i got the scoot.
i also picked up a hjc cl 15 that i can stil use when i get a "real" bike.

=)

Hogue if you are planning to put a pipe on you BWS you'll need to do a few other things as well as the pipe will not work all by it's self. At a minimum you'll need a slight jetting change and a lighter roller weights (in the variator).

If you want to see what a difference this makes we can meet up and you can take my BWS for a spin. I'm on Main Street around 41st. PM me if you like. Oh and welcome to the BCSB Gong Show!
