  • Re: Sensible is best

    I ride my scooter like that too. Like to feel the front wheel lift as I take off. Guess I&#39;m still a hoon! Riders in Europe have snow in winter, and salt on the roads which is very hard on the paintwork and any exposed metal. I have never experienced any problem with rust or stones shot up by the front wheel. There aren&#39;t generally stones ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    I did some work on&nbsp;a couple of Meccano models, pruned some bushes, watched a Poirot, read a fantasy novel, did a couple of sudokus, ate and drank. Didn&#39;t ride. Didn&#39;t do any exercise. Sorry to hear about your electronic issues - fuel gauge and temperature. I&#39;m amazed that your fuel gauge should be so unreliable in this day and ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    I have top boxes on both my scoots. I don&#39;t like their looks, but they are just so damn useful. And when I am parking and leaving the scooter for a while I like to have my helmet out of sight. Sometimes I remove them for a week or so, just to have my scooters looking beautiful. As I keep a full rainsuit under my saddle there is not much room ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Yes, I have a pressure gauge, several of those compressed air bombs, and a short hand pump (which I&#39;ve never used), in a small case under my saddle. One time going down to the city for a scooter club ride, I got as far as North Sydney when I discovered I had a soft rear tyre. Turned around and headed back to the last petrol station, where I ...

    Another problem reported by a couple of guys on the German forum is HPEs using engine oil. So check yours after a few thousand k, don&#39;t wait for the first service, in case yours is one of the&nbsp;guilty ones.&nbsp;It seems this problem resolves itself as the k&#39;s mount up.

  • Re: Sensible is best

    I&#39;m delighted that you are so impressed with it. I have been reading a lot about experience with the HPE on the German vespa forum (online translator), and the only problem reported so far was a squishy front brake, for which there was a recall and a fix. That was only on a small number of models before it was fixed, with an extra bleed ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    One of the guys in the Vespa club has that grey model, and he has blacked out all the chrome. Looks really great. I am also attracted to that model. Good luck with it when you get it. Pity about this damn pandemic cramping all our activities. I look for &quot;necessary&quot; shopping outings (chocolate and such) just to scoot to the shops, which ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    I presume the grey ones are the supertech models. Do you want the digital dash and connection to your smartphone so you can have chats with your scooter all day? You can also install GPS with it. I prefer the looks of the analogue dash, but the electronics is tempting. There is not much colour choice. The supertech comes in a pleasant grey and ...
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Another quick comment. One very good first mod to do to a GTS is replace the front shock, with a Bitubo or BGM or such.
  • Re: Sensible is best

    Forgot to mention seat comfort. All reports say the seat is more comfortable than previous seats, but that doesn&#39;t help you unless you know previous seats. I always modify my seats, and shave off that hump in the centre, as I like to sit back in the middle of the saddle, and ride leaning forward with some weight on the handlebars.
