    Hey Mike

     

    No problems.  We plan to leave the Cafe at 10, so better make that 1045/1100.  Otherwise, it's a long wait. 

     

    Cheers

    Aaron

    OK, I thought the plan was to leave at 9:30. I will take a book with me just in case. Hope the weather holds.

    We had a ride up the old road to Terrigal. Twenty-fthree scooters, mostly GTS with a couple of P series, Primaveras and others. Great crowd and great ride. This is where all the scooter action is thee days (although Northern Beaches crowd are doing pretty well too).

    Betta getta Vespa and join the fun.

    Suggestion = Next time you ride to the Central Coast Try Ettalong as your destination - The BOX cafe on the ettalong beachfront just behind the Mantra resort is a top spot to stop for coffee etc and is far more parking friendly than Terrigal 

    riding for fun

    .... a question for you Mike, with your good technical knowledge: how comfortable/capable would a new GTS 150 iget be on a club run similar to that which you undertook last Sunday? I'm only 68kg. I just overlooked the GTS 150 iget, currently on sale, as I did not like either colour option. But if a white one becomes available it is something I might jump at, with a thumbs up from you. Thanks.

    I can answer you that. We had a few LX150's, a PX and similar sizes on the run up the coast, so you will be fine.

     

    We had two LX-150's make the run to Melbourne and back in January.  So the GTS150 will have no issues.

    On our rides, we generally maintain a maximum speed of 90km/h to cater for L's and P's.

    Thanks for the response. Certainly on the faster sections of roads it will be operating near it's limits, but for general about town duties, for me, it will be adequate. I want to keep the scooter weight down, but it is difficult to establish weight statistics for the GTS 150 IGET. I have seen the latest GTS 300 posted at 158kg, but it does not nominate this as wet or dry weight. I'm guessing the GTS IGET will be 145-47kg. The Tricity 155 just purchased comes in at 165kg wet, which has allowed me to establish that I do not want to be handling any more weight than this for traditional scooter duties.
