Thread revival: Last month I talked to a guy in Tucumcari who was on his way back to San Diego from the Vespa national rally in Minneapolis. He said he took the interstates most of the way at 65-70 mph. That's a 4200-mile roundtrip. He had a newer 200cc model with fuel injection. Neat little machine.Got a speeding ticket on the Oakland Bay Bridge for 80 mph on that scooter. Took the owners manual to court and showed the judge where it said top speed was 68 mph, case dismissed. It had a few mods. Did a lot of freeway riding at 70 but 75 was pushing it for riding any distance. Used to commute daily between LaHonda and downtown SF, 41 miles each way. Much of that was on Hwy 280. Always used Michelin tires and never had a tire issue.
