I'm DougThompson and live (and ride) in East Kentucky. I've had my Majesty 2 months and just returned from a ride half hour ago. I now have nearly 1400 miles on it. I'm very happy with it so far. I can zip up these steep mountains here with no effort. Just "twist and go" !

My previous ride was a 1600cc Yamaha Road Star. I traded it for my Majesty because most of my riding is either short trips around town or an occasional longer trip. The Majesty is perfect for the style of riding I do. While the Road Star is a tough act to follow, I would much rather have my Scoot. It's so nimble in traffic and downtown, easy to park and turn and I can pick it up if I happen to let gravity get the upper hand,

Thanks GreenGoose for this site. I look forward to surfing through here daily. I'm sure this Majestyusa site will be at least as successful as your Bergman site.

Looking forward to meeting lots of other Majesty owners. Our numbers are growing !

Welcome Doug. I have a Yamaha Road Star Warrior at home collecting dust. I am going to sell it because I use my scooter much more than my big bike. I have only 600 miles on my Road Star and its almost a year old.

I agree this board rules. I was going to buy a Honda Reflex until I found this board and saw how much better a Majesty would suit me. Got mine the end of February 2006 - candy red. I am a hot rodding nut and can't leave a good thing alone - have already attacked the Majesty several times - voiding the warranty I'm sure.
Main interest is my 9 year old daughter who one day will RULE THE WORLD!
Other interests are listening to and playing music (electric bass), woodworking, surfing, exercising and martial arts.
And since 1990 I have been devoted to the "ultra ultra eccentric power-pop-punk" band Shonen Knife (drove 3,200 miles round trip to see them live one and it was worth it).

My online nickname (not for this board, but other places) was influenced by lyrics from a Shonen Knife song "blue eyes, blonde hair, tight body, long legs. She's very smart. She can dance well."! I've seen 'em twice, once in BC and once in Washington.

Alright! It is so rare to meet anyone who knows of the band. That song is called "Twist Barbie" and is a joke about how Japanese women want to look western. They have full page ads in Japanese newspapers for plastic surgeons who will "Westernize" Japanese women - take the fold out of their eyelids, give them skinny noses etc.. It's kind of sad.
They are going to tour North America then end of 2006 - dates and venues aren't final yet.
