    Hi all.
    Late last year I bought a very limited edition (one of 30 in the U.K.) Vespa PX 150 Anniversary Edition scooter....brand new,street legal 2 stroke!
    I`m keeping it clean and special so it wasn`t used over Winter at all and it still needs running-in for its first service.
    Anyway,we`re having lovely weather here at present so I took it out for a 120 mile run today.

    It`s in Day Tripping...here`s the link.... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=776529

    And here`s a 'taster' photo... :evil

    Nice scooter! That's a really interesting seat, I've never seen one like that on a P/PX, with the modern-style cutaway. Is it comfortable?

    Thanks!
    It`s the stock seat that they are fitting to the new PXs.
    I`ve found it to be comfortable on the 120 mile and 150 mile days that I`ve just done....at one time yesterday I felt a bit of 'numb bum' so I just sat a bit further back for a few miles.
