Christian - Phoenix 250 #10
I've always been a scooter guy, vintage, new it didn't matter. I loved making small things go faster and loved the look - especially of my 1964 Vespa VBB 150. There haven't been many times when I haven't had something on 2-wheels in my garage, until last year. I had to end up selling my vintage Vespa reluctantly, but knew I would eventually buy another as soon as I could. Fast forward to almost a year and a half later... I started searching for Vespas again, but accidentally stumbled across the Janus Motorcycles Facebook page that a few of my friends had "liked" and as I started researching them more, I knew that I had to have a Phoenix 250. It looked different than any other bike, plus it was small, nimble and the speeds on it seemed just about right for me.
I decided to call Janus to see what was available if any as it was so late in the year. I had noticed a few weeks prior to my research that there was a cream one at a nearby restaurant in Winona Lake. When I talked to Josiah, he said that the cream one was available, so we set up a time to meet there and he brought a demo bike for me to ride. I immediately fell in love with the Phoenix. I left Josiah a deposit for the cream one that night and they delivered it to my house in a couple days. I immediately started riding that weekend and have been riding as much as possible ever since. In fact I have put over 1500 miles on it in just a few short months of owning it.
The guys at Janus are great. I had a couple small issues that they immediately took care of and went above and beyond any expectations. The bike performs flawlessly and I have to say I get more attention on this thing than any car, bike or scooter I've ever ridden. I can't wait til spring arrives to hop back on and put another 1500 miles on it. Thanks guys!
