Hi David

Back offshore in PNG at the moment, hope to be home in about 2 weeks.

Before I left, I reset the mixture screw after talking with Roberto.  Its running much better, although still a little rich (no flooding on WOT, but plug still wet). I went for a nice ride to Warrandyte to test it out before i left.

Will try to get along for another ride later in June.

Cheers

Hi Paul. How's your scoot going? Have you had a chance to re-jet your carb for the new cylinder yet? Best wishes, David

Hi Paul

Have you seen the Classic Celebration ride that has been put up Sunday 22 April.... will you be able to join us for that on as it fits your timeframe.  It would be a great opportunity to meet other classic riders in the club and of course the rest of us....Check out the event and mark you attendance if it suits.  Hope to see you there.

Cheers Julie

Hi Paul.... love the white.

We are a club for all Vespas so we have about 17 classic bikes in our club now - and a number of more modern geared, and many modern auto. We are hoping to get our classic members together - and out for a ride - very soon - hopefully sometime in April. Watch out for it on events
