CityCom300i “Outback Adventure”
All just to prove it's got what it takes the Citycom 300 i from SYM proves itself a true workhorse.
We weren’t sure you’d believe us if we just told you what the brand new SYM CityCom300i was capable of, so as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!
Our National Sales Manager Tim, Service Manager Scott, his best mate Andis and of course Morph the dog (there’s always a dog!) took off a couple of months ago and road our gorgeous brand new CityCom300i to Cameron’s Corner and back. For those a little less familiar with the rugged outback than this crazy lot, Cameron’s Corner is where the border of the Northern Territory, New South Wales and Queensland meet – basically the middle of the outback on a scoota!
Traveling over 3,200km in just six days (1,150km on dirt), our intrepid travellers tackled some of the toughest roads in Australia; corrugation, sand, bulldust and cattle grates – there’s been tall tales of disappearing into pot holes for hours at a time!
The group are an experienced bunch of dirt bikers who were after a new challenge and as one local in Milprainka (population 10!) said “You guys are even madder than us and look where we live”. He was so impressed that he replaced his old Akubra, which he’d worn for the last 19 years, with a SYM cap!
And how did the scoota go you ask, better than the conditioned riders who were broken!
• They averaged 3.74 litres of Shell V-Power per 100km (thanks Shell for your support!).
• We’re still riding around on the same road tyres a couple of months later; didn’t even get a puncture.
• Replaced the air filter once; you could of used it to pot plants.
• The boys maintained regular oil changes throughout.
• Never adjusted the suspension settings.
• Lost one body screw only!
As they wound their way along the Great Ocean Road and neared the end of their journey they lamented the near misses with suicidal wildlife, towing logs to the campfire too big for the three of them to lift and proud of their achievements after the outback ride-off with the 650cc adventure riding group they bumped into!
We’d like to thank Shell, Draggin Jeans and scootersales.com.au for their support.
