What a great journey and report Stergios. I used to ride Lambrettas in my youth - although I did have a PX150 for a while - so I always enjoy scooter adventures.

Ride safe.

Commuting on my Tiger 800 - all urban - in winter I only get about 35 MPG (Imperial). Obviously in warmer weather and on longer rides it improves considerably but still well short of 60.
