I had a bar end. Since I am constantly catching large insects in the chest and face...I went back to my Givi and have the original mirrors back on.

It's much more scootery now. I like it.

hey Cortez, i already miss the ease of use of my scooter and how easy it was to get around nowadays im caring about how im cornerning more than everything instead of just getting on and letting my mind wander whilst getting somewhere in a calm manner i will have another scooter one day i do love the Vespa GTS Super 300 one of those would do me fine enough power in a scooter package then a sportsbike for the open road bearing in mind a petrol station is near by

I use this on cofffee runs and just short rides. It's all original Euro spec and only has around 2000 miles. and has only left me once with a broken shift cable. Not bad for a 40 year old scoot.

They also had a deluxe and ultra deluxe model- which looked like the harley tour king of old scooters. These were on the roof in amazing restored condition.

addio mio carissimo amore

May be the last picture of my beloved Nexus. Having lost to the GFC my sports ute, 2 gorgeous Ducati; I managed to hold onto the scooter... but things have picked up and I'm going Duke maybe this weekend. looking forward to a change in pace.

Five years of fun, it's been a great ride. Topped out at 182kmh (112mph), cruised happily from 100-150kmh (60-90mph).
But the biggest pain in the butt to change the rear tyre

I'll get another scoot, probably the MP3/500 (Fuoco over here), when I'm a little too old to scrape the knee or lift the leg (so it won't be too long then )

Addio mio carissimo amore,






PS, note the fine blue skies, middle of winter downunder, nice hey!?
