    All I want for Xmas is a new bike... my little nifty fifty is gone now and I'm moving to the countryside, and with huge proposed tax increases on bikes here in Middle Earth I'm not sure if I'll get a replacement. But if I do, I'd like it to be fuel-injected, runs 120km/hr easily with more in reserve for emergencies, and gives me 30+ km/L mileage Cool

    Re: All I want for Xmas is....

    The time has come to ask Santa for a Leo Vince Four Road pipe for the GTS. I said I wazzen gunna frig with the GTS, but I just loved how my GT200 sounded and enjoyed the bolt on power increase. Anyone here got one on their GTS? Hey WANDA, with the Aussie Dollar being so strong, theres no better time to buy one form MotorSporyScooters in the USA. $399 US plus about $90 shipping, thats about $520 AUD...... Hmmm. Wonder if santa will be kind?

    Steve@Ace has said he has a supplier. I believe the Ace mech, Bill, has fitted a LV to Joshzingzing's PX (?), either the LV or PMTuning exhaust to a Zip 2t (I wanna try that baby!) and hopefully soon my Don will don a LV also.

    Thanks for the compliment Pete - I notced that Garry has organised Wednesday Eats in my 'hood - so may see you in Burwood!

    Niks - although it is black it is all mesh (so very cool - temp & fashionwise) - there is also a tonne of reflective tape all over it so I should still be easy to spot!

     I've decided I also need a horn that is automatically triggered if I have to hit the brakes suddenly. Who has the ability to hit the brakes, avoid the crash & hit the horn all at the same time? Indifferent

    I have to admit the horn is usually applied last in those situations.  Preceeded by me swearing at the car

    the zip with the pipe is mad. i have tried it and it just flies.

     they have fitted a ginelli pipe to a satelis

    i don't think that pipe was for the Beverly - cause i would own it by now if it did... i was up there and saw it...

    and yes nut - to be honest i don't bother tooting my horn... i just evade the car... several times i have pulled up next to the car at the lights and informed the driver that he almost hit me... usually followed by a stunned "uhhhhh what??" then an apology - and promise to not drive and talk on the phone again! :p
