It’s been almost 6 years and I think Geely needed some holiday. He had served me well on all my trips and rides (market, office, errands and gimmicks) there’s no question about that. Although just like any other motorbike, sometimes he suffered slight failures, minor parts mostly.
And then came Miah! She’s a Yamaha Mio Sporty, which me and my partner recently acquired at Yamaha 3S Marikina, with the charming and pretty Angelika assisting us lively until Miah is rolled down their service bay. (the keychain is great, thanks!) Choosing between black or white really gave us headaches. White wins at the end of the day.
Naming my rides has become a habit since I gave my first to a Kymco scooter which I named “Kim”, then my second was “Geely”, and now Miah! It somehow gave me some kind of bonding with them. I hope with the coming of Miah to my “riding” life she can surpassed her predecessors in terms of performance and efficiency.
One of the juicy things of acquiring a Yamaha Mio is the abundant supply of after market parts, both performance or for show-off. Much cheaper than auto parts definitely! Good thing Yamaha opened a shop near my turf. I can bring Miah there for the occasional fine tuning and maintenance. I will not take chance on opening her this early, after all I guess it will take some time before I’ll get familiarize with her body. lol
