Post yours here...
Woot! Pics already. Good start.
My buddy Mike. May he get his own scooter soon...
And Bikeless, Ditto.
This is what you see when you loan your scoot to a ridercoach...
2005 Super 9
Why, yes, it DOES have bigass dual disc brakes.
What next, a sidecar forum, for crying out loud? Hey, wait a minute....
THese scoots were in a S/TEP class I helped teach last July:
A friend of mine used to have a pretty cool collection of vintage and custom scooters; I have some great photos, but it is a pain in the ass to post pix on ADVrider anymore and I don't have time to mess with it now.
And the award for "Best Scooter in a Supporting Role" goes to...
A Zuma rental in Marmaris, Turkey... What a hoot, we rode the piss out of them Even a ratted out rental Zuma was good for a tad over 60mph (in a aero tuck!). Edit - now that I think about it could it have been 60 on a 49cc? Speedo said 100km/ph...
Recently traded this P.O.S
For this one.
Both 1980 P 200s. The new one is low miles with a 210 Malossi head and piston. Pollini pipe is on order from Scooterworks! Even upgraded to the oversize milk carton carryall. :eek1
1974 Rally 200. Bought new by dad in 1974.
Feel free to start a thread, too, if you want some input.
I'm still trying to dial in my Pinasco 177. Hasn't kept me from riding it, though.
I'd like to familiarize myself with 'em.
Did you change the mainjet? I think with a more freeflowing exhaust and larger piston, jump up a size or 2 for a richer mix? Am I correct in this thinking?
HONDA CT 70.
THEY BRING OUT THE BEAST IN YOU!
OMG. I love the CT's. My neighbor had a CT-70 when I had a Z-50, and it was the "big bike" in the neighborhod. I think Sochiro Honda had us all hooked by age 7.
Speaking of CT's...I'd sell my soul for a perfect CT-110. Probably one of the kewlest camp bikes ever made, next to the TW-thingey.
Basically, yes. But the scoot also has a Dellorto 24G carb, which is very finicky to dial in. Started with a 120, backed down to a 110 and soft-seized, now I'm at a 112, and it's still not quite there because the idle is handling most of the around town stuff and it's rich but on long country rides it's a bit lean.
This is the only pic I have. My Alienware crashed taking all my pictures and old camera software with it (limping along on an old notebook for now). Got a new Canon SD400 and snapped this with it before the wife stole it and took it to Las Vegas with her (to do a Track Day at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway).
What? No 100 mirrors?
Actually, not even 2 mirrors? You don't find it annoying that you can't see what's behind you? :eek1
