    Freo Nexus gathering 8 Mar 09

    After a confusing start to the day we eventually met up together in Fremantle on Sunday morning, the first time we were all able to be in the one place at the same time. Four Gileras (three Nexus and a Fuoco) looking great together.

    Even the "STIG" took time out from TG to call by and get in the picture!

    Next time we all get together, it will hopefully be in a more suitable location.

    What I want to do next is link up the Southern and Northern river runs into a gigantic loop and go early enough in the morning to avoid the traffic (all traffic on the twisty bits of the river runs) thereby enjoying the best run you are likely to get in Perth. No room for road snails - legal speed limit as a minimum pace. With three Nexus, a Fuoco, other maxis and others in a tight group snaking it's way around the river course. Go around once in one direction then again in the oposite direction. What a blast!!!

    Re: Freo Nexus gathering 8 Mar 09

    Last night (Sunday) was cool enough to test out one leg of the river run and starting from the Freo end it took just over 50 minutes to go half way around the circuit. There was only one tin top that got in the way and he turned off shortly after. The section through Mosman Park was fantastic, not a tin top in sight, I had the road to myself but I had to keep the speed down a little as the colour of the road changes often (thanks to paved sections and sprinklers on the road) and it is not easy to detect the course of the road at night. One particular corner was a bit of a hazard as the kerb looks confusing in the turn. I went in both directions and only a small deviation was necessary to the normal course on the north direction trip. The full circuit should take approx two hours during off peak hours (little or no traffic) after 2100H or before 0800H. You could add about 30 minuted for off peak times (between 0800 and 1000H and 1900 to 2100H) and forget it after that as the traffic would only disolve the enjoyment of the twisty run. Once the current hot weather disipates I would like to do the full circuit, either early in the morning or later in the evening. Anyone wishing to join me must be prepared to get up early or stay out late, which will add to the fun!!!! 

    Nightrider, Silverflyer, Tony, you are going to love it!

    Re: Freo Nexus gathering 8 Mar 09

    The scooter shop in Queen Victoria St, Fremantle also have a beautiful red Nexus 500 for sale too.

    I pass it regularly and I hate to see it just sitting there, I know it yearns to be set free and tour the riverside run with all the other wild Nexus that fly past.

    There must be someone out there who is wise enough, compasionate enough, and cashed up enough to set it free.

    Now is the time to twist the shop keepers arm and get a good deal !
