Big difference off the line, top end is about the same. The 300 hits the power band lower down in the revs so it's quicker. The 250 takes a little longer to get wound up but then it flys. The 300 is still a little tight though because it only has 1000 miles on it so I expect to keep getting better. I've since sold the 250 and had the red topcase painted white. I also added the chrome kit, swapped the corbin seat and installed a Leo Vince pipe. The front rack didn't fit because of the different horncast on the 300 so I'm shopping around for a 250 horncast.

I think it was about 60 mostly uphill miles to get to that point (HWY276 at the BRP). I was a little disappointed to find the parkway to be closed, but getting to blast back down the mountain made the trip worth while.

Sounds like a fun ride! Now if you can repaint it to the 'correct' SC colors (Orange!)

Do it! The CT is stupid fun.

Parts are easy to get, but not that cheap at Beatrice Cycle. Yours looks pretty much complete.

WooHOO! New to me, 2006 GT200. Getting it sorted out (having bought it used) this last week and 600 miles. It only had 651 miles when I bought it, and it was a virgin, having never been taken out on the freeway and no mod'. I've been trying to personalize it and get it looking tough-n-fine with decals & such. What a cool ride!

I've started restoring my '88 Hercules Supra 3D Moped. This picture was taken in May 2003, shortly before I stopped using it:



Since then it's been hidden away behind a shed exposed to all elements this planet has to offer and, for the last year or so, in a friend's garage. Took it back home two days ago and started taking it apart today. To my surprise, after cleaning the air filter (looks good as new), spark plug, and flooding the engine with oil to make sure it's lubricated it kick-started right away after the fourth kick! Now that's German engineering!

It's in pretty good shape given that it's been standing outside for at least six years and then covered with lots of crap for another year. Hercules/Sachs only built this for less than a year in 1988, so there's only about a dozen left worldwide. It features a state-of-the-art (1988-state-of-the-art that is) two-stroke 49ccm 2 kW / 2.7 HP Sachs 505/3 DK engine. Back in 2000 I took it to from Munich to Lago di Garda, Italy, and back. Took me several days to get there since going uphill this thing topped out at ~25 to 30 km/h

It's thus probably the smallest touring bike I've ever used. I'll post some new pictues tomorrow after putting it back together.
