Wicked winds - rain.....but livable temps~!

Mills Park hotel in Y.S. Under new owners.
Always a great Xmas tree in the lobby!

My Liberty alternates road time with my old Kymco LIKE200iLX.
Probably should have ridden the Liberty this morning with its 55W headlight - many hours of winds put down a lot of tree debris.
O.S.

Great pics, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas 😁
How does the Kymco compare to the Liberty performance wise ?

The 2012 163cc Kymco has maybe a touch more pep off the line than the 2017 155cc Liberty - both top out @55/60mph.
BUT, the Liberty takes the rough roads better - better suspension?-- but no hesitation in saying that the Liberty's 16/15" wheels feel much more stable over the road than the 12/12" wheels of the Kymco.
Motorcycle-like feel.
Dual discs (and braided lines) on the Kymco are head and shoulders better brakes than the Liberty with it's drum rear. Liberty has ABS front.....and feels rather "spindly?"
Superb EFI on both.
Both seem bullet proof, with good fit & finish.
