Then came time for a speed test. I took it out to I-10 and ran from Edgewood Avenue to Chaffee Road. Then returned. No real wind today and no hills on that stretch, so it was running on its own mostly, with a little help from drafting some cars.
We hit 80 mph going out and 81 coming back. All GPS.
I am quite certain that I have found my Cannonball scooter.
We will start with a new carburetor and rear tire.. The oil, variator, belt and rollers were changed a couple of months ago but only have 1500 miles of running on them. They should be fine. I will be bringing spares of everything, and plan to change the belt and oil in Nebraska.
Not bad speed for a 2005 Vespa GT.
I am sure that it can go faster in better conditions.
