So just put about a 1000 miles on a Yamaha T Max 530... There is a lot to be said about big scooters for touring. The TMax is one of the peppier of the lot and handles more like a mild sport bike than a cruiser. 15" wheels are a plus IMO. Got caught in heavy rain, coverage is not bad, bike had bigger Givi windshield which helped. Optional rear suitcase and under seat storage give lots of storage....BUT the thing is tall....tippy toes for me but with exception of rear suitcase installed all the weight is down low so it balances well....all in all " I don't give a shift"

  • Paul, I just looked up the T Max. Does it have a tach? Yamaha put one on the scooter but not the 1300 deluxe? What the?

  • Sheila Ambrose yes it has a tach, highway speeds=5000+rpm
