I think the downhill speed was increased.

Amazingly, it's not much influenced by the extra weight. 2mph slower uphill? I live in the West Hills of Portland, and I've ridden this scooter all over. Some hills it's 19mph. The main arterial street near my house is just the slightest grade and it's 24mph one way and 31mph the other way.

I actually just sold this scooter and used this picture and those words in the ad on CL. I'm using the money to buy a 85 or 86 Honda Elite 150 Deluxe CH150D so I don't get run over on the 35mph road to work.

Nice, had a spree myself 15 years ago. I remember I got it to 38 mph w/ a whole bottle of 108 octane boost. It was fun in the middle of the nite when streets are deserted but scary when buses and trucks are barreling up behind you. I kept it for a few months and moved up to a 87 elite 150 also.

I grew up in Portland and moved away when I was 17yrs old I am 34 now...I was there last year to run the Hood To Coast and am plotting to move back ASAP! Portland has to be the best city in America!....I have never been a fan of Burgerville though.....

This was taken in Mineral Wells, TX -- they have a smaller scale VietNam War memorial there --- apparently the helicopter pilots trained in Mineral wells ---- thank you so much for your service.

Where at in Vietnam? I was with the 3/5 Cav, C Troop, BlackKnights in 1969. We operated from the Ashau Valley to the DMZ.
