Cruising speed and recommended top speed 57 mph. It can go over 60 on the flat but it is hard on the valves. It can run at 57 all day.

Another Marmite bike/scooter.

Was not going to post, then realised some of these come as auto shift bikes too, mine is a 50cc with one down, three up.

Cat Scan just after it got home. Harley was over and on top of it, as previous owners have cats too.










Wanted to get a pic next to the big John Deere Tractor, but it was parked tight between other implements.

JCB will have to do.




Back at home after a wash and clean.

Nicola has seen it and just commented "UGLEEEE ! " and walked away. So not impressed.

Clean enough for now.
