  • Re: Sensible is best

    Pete Gailey, a once strong contibutor to this site, posted something years ago about his GTS that stuck in my claw; &#39;modern retro brilliance&#39;.&nbsp; So I have never ridden a Vespa, period, or test ridden any version of the GTS that has now captured a large deposit from me. But I know I&#39;ll be happy - I&#39;ll adjust to it, as I did ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Yes it&#39;s a Supertech. They are only available in smart grey and black. I&#39;m done with black. Have been for some years. I find the grey appealing. The Supertech is overkill for me, with marginal personal tech literacy. But it doesn&#39;t make sense, to me, to buy the older mechanical technology. The Supertech is expensive, this is plain to ...

    Thanks for supporting me, Mike. I think I&#39;ll run the Maxxis tires, that now exist across the Vespa range. European reviews show the City Grip on their examples. Maybe some time in the future I&#39;ll upgrade, or swing across. The dealer is saying he can do a change, but at some point I&#39;ll need to do a budget for this non budget scooter. ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    .... oh, and I would really appreciate you commenting on fuel range. The new HPEs have only a 7ltr tank, down from 8.5ltrs. I crunch the numbers and see myself a frequent visitor to the gas station(s). I&#39;m very close to pushing the &#39;go&#39; button. What&#39;s holding me back is: seat comfort; insurance costs; fuel range. Or am I missing ...

    Hi Mike - yes, all the Vespa range, including the 300 Supertech are shod with Maxxis. Any thoughts regarding these tires comparatively? Also, I was wrong about a white GTS 300hpe Super ...... it was a 150 with identical styling cues. Are you able to identify with an insurer that looks favourably at Vespa scooters? Thanks, Mark&nbsp;
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Thanks for this. Not too much fun happening here - but the good weather this morning allowed me to go out on my custom bicycle for a wide circuit of the city. You can&#39;t believe how many people were out in Centennial Park and along the waterfront precinct at Glebe. Extremely light vehicle traffic everywhere, good air quality, but hoards of ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Thanks Mike. What tires were fitted to both scooters from new? From whom do you purchase your Vespas? Can I request from you a product number or part number for a Bitubo front shock you would fit to a 300hpe? If I did no other modification this is something I would like to undertake -- or have fitted. This and possibly a Faco mid size screen. ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Thanks for sharing, Mike. Two years already. But my own intense carer duties seems to have blurred time - my lovely mother died in my arms as I was getting her up - &#39;a catastrophic brain bleed unrecoverable at any age&#39;. A blessing really. Too difficult now to manage I feel through this pardigm shift. I&#39;m thinking how you are navigating ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Hi Mike - It&#39;s good that you stay connected to this site. These two wheels make up part of our passion and interest, so just maybe a breath of circumstantial life will be breathed back into this site, if only for the duration of the shutdown. I&#39;m not embarassed to say that this is a connection life-line. Please forgive my intrusion, but ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    I went out late yesterday on the Monkey for a one hour wheel around my favourite circuit. I had a script in my backpack. I was also thinking the same, that it would be preferable to wear some style of mask&nbsp;
