GT Powersports Grand Opening

Saturday, November 1, 2008

Golden Triangle Powersports (aka Golden Triangle Cycle Center) used to occupy a corner on 1625 College Steet within a stone’s throw from Downtown Beaumont; but no more, a week ago, they closed down the old store and moved into their expansive, brand-new location at 30 IH-10 North (across the freeway from Chili’s).  This new location puts them within striking distance from the Cowboy motorcycle megaplex.  Inside the GTP new store, you will find everything that you desire under one roof.  As for me, my attention quickly zeroed in on the 2009 Zuma 125.  A lot bigger from its 50cc sibling, with even more powerful lines and aggressive styling, this is a great-looking scooter (test ride soon)!  Go see Shad Amons and he will hook you up with one.  For more photos of the Zuma 125, please read on.  Oh, yes!  The T-Max will soon be arriving, too.–Lorenzo

Attractively simple, yet concise instrumentation layout

Red stitching on the seat is an appealing detail

Twin tailights remind me of my Aprilia SR50 and more recently, the mp3

Handguards are practical for the occasional rides in the woods

Dual 27mm telescopic forks and 220mm disk brakes up front

Twin headlights now have a protective bar around them

Exposed tubular steel frame makes the Zuma 125 a lil' Ducati Monster

Bigger is badder

Scooters, motorcycles, ATV's, you name it

If you miss this gigantic sign on the freeway, perhaps a trip to TSO is long overdue

Hey, they even have this '02 Honda Silverwing for $3,700

    Y’all come on down to Beaumont this Saturday and we will go do some test rides on this 125! Only then will we know the verdict.
