  • Re: Sensible is best

    I had a computer security issue that was, or seemed to be a result of a supplier administrative error. I just went silent through this period until resolved.&nbsp; My Vespa dealer informed me the other day that the HPE Supersports is just about to arrive; as are some racing sixties variants. I&#39;ll post when I see them, so you can have a look ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    They ride better when detailed and spoilt. I wiped over and placed at the back of my garage last Thursday the HPE. But yesterday afternoon I brought it to the starting grid; the weather looked set to be ideal for two wheeling.&nbsp; Mid morning today I took a scenic route to La Perouse, then decided (although I was prepared) to swing round the bay ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Yes, the morning weather was ideal for a ride so it&#39;s good you took advantage of it. I kept thinking how good it would have been to be able to take a scooter run down south. I did an early Cliff Young shuffle thingy instead; covered a reasonable distance. After a late breakfast I took a circuit harbour and coast ride out to Watsons Bay, then ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Thank you. Yes, a lot of my riding is along the seaboard. I have been constantly addressing the related issues of salt mist on my rides for years. Especially all the leading edges. My machines are garaged, and usually I wipe them over with a chamois before standing them down. And some Mr. Sheen. It&#39;s constant. But salt mist can be so ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    A funny thing happened on the way to: On a return journey today, entering the outskirts of Maroubra junction, I viewed a white GTS 300 closing in from behind at a brisk pace. We both arrived at the front grid (traffic lights) at the same time, but in separate lanes.I wanted to comment about her ability to rear view with mirrors positioned so ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    The truth is I needed to look up - sudokas. Suspicions are that the temperature sensor is being affected by a surrounding heat source. When you turn on the ignition the temp. reading appears as per external conditions. After a few ks it jumps up. I live in hope that the fuel gauge will settle. It did perform better today for my late circuit ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Hi - cops are ever patrolling here, but it&#39;s about logistics; when the sun shines and hoards of folk spill outside from their high density living, this seems difficult to police. You need to be doing something blatant to attract the attention of boys and girls in blue. The manual reads a minimum of 95 octane. I am aware that octane levels are ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Aldi chilli dark chocolate - is my favourite. And sections are individually wrapped, which helps maintain consumpton discipline. How lucky am I with the weather; a new scooter and ideal seasonal weather. I did go out and purchase a small 2 pack air bomb kit. Not running a top box the use of exiting storage space needs to be well considered. I ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    I&#39;m mindful about oil burn with this model, having read similar. Do you carry an emergency tyre inflation kit?
  • Re: Sensible is best

    I didn&#39;t need someone to hold my hand through this purchase exercise, but I genuinely appreciated your accumulated subject knowledge and flag waving, Mike. It&#39;s more rewarding to have shared this purchase experience. I spent three hours yesterday morning &#39;proofing&#39; and detailing the scooter. But that&#39;s me. When I swung past the ...
