Sayonara Japan

Sayonara 日本 . . .  (; o ;)

After five years two-strokin' the right-hand streets of Japan, Moped Luau is finally moving back to the mother-island of Hawaii.  It's been great reppin' Puch mopeds in this country.  I probably was the only on in the country with one!!!  Thanks to everyone who supported Moped Luau in Japan.  Especially my fellow two-stroke head Soma-san.  We carved up that Miyagase run pretty hard.  Soma-san will continue to support this blog with his two-stroke adventures on his Honda MB5 and Yamaha RZR.  Be sure to continue to check out his Corner on this blog.  Although Moped Luau was conceived and created in Japan, Hawaii is where it belongs.  Getting back my garage at full force, I can finally show the community what Puch building Hawaiian style is all about.  Stay tune...

Alert: Buyer Beware

I recently bought a ZA50 from Moped Army's Buy and Sell forums.  The seller claimed: "...I did seen it run and move across the garage right when the bike came in..."  You be the judge:
