The Burgman has roughly 3 gallons of usable fuel, making for 150-200 mi. between necessary gas stops. I used the gas can (1 gallon) as extra insurance and thankfully never had to use it. In fact, I left it in Massachusetts at my parents' house by accident. I was hoping that on-board extra fuel would help increase my range, however my butt-comford range was significantly less than the fuel-related range.

Fuel economy is around 50-55mpg on the highways (crusing at 70-80mph, not quite WOT) but is higher in the city (60-65mpg)--my fuel efficiency topped out while riding down the Blue Ridge Parkway through Virginia at 78mpg, and I wasn't exactly taking it "easy".

Overall a blast, though. Any [scooter] riders in east Texas?

Vespa GTS 250ie

This is my new pride and joy. A silver 2006 Vespa GTS 250ie. I will tell you one thing she looks fast and she is fast, even with my tubby ass on her.

beautiful




That is one of the most beautiful vehicles I've ever seen. And I am not a big fan of green.

Aesthically pleasing.

WOW! I don't think I've ever seen a Fenderlight model with a sidecar and I certainly haven't seen THAT sidecar! Good grief, that's pretty. That chrome bar across the top of the hack really sets it off nicely.

What pretty, flowing lines. I love it when engineering and art combine like that.

Very Zen.

Very nice! I got ride on a GT200 _(thes same color).Verysmooth and quick, stability was very good with the larger wheels. I can see how people take long trips on these scoots. BTW, I was in your fair city last week doing a survey job on an oil well just outside of town, very pretty and green up there..

I like the mirror positioned so you can look at your passenger.

Nice , noob. Why don't you just post a link to your flea market listing too while you're at it?
