Elysea... absolutlely the best scooter ride report i've ever seen. Great pictures and really like the Brie with the bread shot.

2000 km on a scooter , WOW! I'm impressed.

Thanks for the nice comments!

I should have translated the metrics...

The total trip was 1250 miles, average stage about 200 miles.

Top speed is 55 mph, but I kept 50 to to not stress Scootris, fuel consumpion was about 64 MPG.

BTW - the saddle bag was NOT a good idea, a top box would have been better.
