Finished another LakeErieLoop race on my 125 Vino

Conquered the 2013 LakeErieLoop again last weekend on my 2006 Vino 125.

According to Mr. Garmin my stats were as follows;
Total miles 654.4
Total time 13:38
Overall average speed 48.0
Overall moving speed 54.1
Top speed 66.3 (wind and hills must have something to do with this!)
Total moving time 12:06
Total stopped time 1:32 (thanks to the toll gates and customs crossing)

So, 654 miles in 13:38 hours, not too bad for a fat guy on a little scooter. We raise money for pediatric burn victims on this ride, consider entering next year and help us out. Next years dates will be the weekend of June 21 (Fri. - Sun.). www.lakeerieloop.com

Nicely done, Bill, and all for a great cause. Hard to imaging such a high average speed on such small displacement. Bravo!

Did you have cup holders, sandwich holder, and a bladder buddy?

That is very little stopping time for that long of a ride.

Good work!

The only "accessory" I had was a 2 gallon spare gas can strapped to the floorboard. I could get about 70-75 miles per tank and could fill up 2 more times with the spare gas before having to stop at a gas station for a fill up. Other than the 2 border crossings, the tolls and the 3 gas stops, I kept moving. Border crossings were the worst time delays. Stopped once in Ontario at a Tim Horton for soup and a roll, the only food I ate during the trip. No water bottle, no snacks, etc. Having done this ride every year for 10 years, I knew what to expect and what to take.

In all we raised almost $4500 for the burned kids this year, our highest total to date.

Way to go. In all my riding I think maybe 550 miles was the most in one day. And I was beat after that.

Those Vino 125s are tough scooters. I was wondering how you dealt with the gas situation. Totally topped off, mine has a 70 mile range before it sputters to a stop. I usually carry one extra gallon, as gas stations can be more than 70 miles apart when riding through the AZ desert. I've had mine up to 65+ mph going downhill, but don't do it anymore. That has to be way above redline. The Zuma 125 won't do that. It has a rev limiter which cuts the ignition at 59 mph, and engine braking prevents down hill speed build up.

nice! I am wondering if I could do a rally like this one on my 100 cc honda.

That vino is very nice looking, sad it only has a 70ish mile range. 12 hours on that seat must be a challenge...

Got any tips for comfort? or for preping the scooter?

Thanks

Great job! I would think a Camelbak vest might help with hydration (but then you'd need that "bladder buddy" brianwheelies was talking about). One other thing that might be helpful: a pre-paid gift certificate for a butt massage at the end.

Good riding for a good cause - kudos!

Jim

I think I hit 70 (indicated not GPS) on mine once on a hill I didnt expect to be so steep, sounded like it was going to explode beneath me. Those tiny wheels scare me above 50.

It's a nice looking scooter and mine has taken a beating, but it has no torque and on flat ground tops out around 55. The 1 gallon tank is probably my biggest peave about it though, I'd gladly trade some of the space under the seat for a bigger tank.

I have carried a gallon of gas under the seat. That space appears to only be intended for helmets, and that is what everybody tries to put in it, and if their helmet won't fit, then the space is worthless. I don't think it makes much sense to keep that space empty all the time so you can put your helmet in it only while parked. My helmet either goes with me, or goes on the mirror.

Any pics?

i'm glad to see a ride report like this. I'm toying with the idea of taking an extra day off of work so I can cruise from the Chicago suburbs to southwest Michigan. Your ride makes it seem less nutty.
