"Thanks David for that info. I am leaning towards the Pinasco 2 port kit with a carb & exhaust for good measure. Common opinion seems to be that this would be the best bang for my bucks. Engine is on the bench now, so decisions will be made soon…"

"Hi Darren, the 177 Pinasco, which is what I have on my Super and will work as a plug and play without the need to modify the engine case ports. The 2-port Pinasco kit gives you a pseudo third port (in fact 5-ports) that work via additional channels…"

"It's a 2 port. It looks like I have decided on the Pinasco 177 cylinder kit for the 2 port engine after all. Having said that, I do have to split the cases for some other work, so adding a 3rd transfer port is not totally out of the…"

Tuning kit for my VBC.

Hi folks.I am currently investigating the options of freshening up the engine on my Super with the possibility of investing in a tuning kit.Does anyone have any opinions/experience on these from SIP?http://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/products/tuning+kit+dr+road+177+cc+_10105000When you add it all together plus freight, it seems to come out as a pretty reasonable deal.Thanks,See More

Spin Around Lal Lal - Sun 5 May at Lal Lal

May 5, 2019 from 9:30am to 3pm
A spin across the tablelands exploring back roads and some little visited places - from the forgotten town of Morrisons, then up and across to Lal Lal, and across to Buninyong, via Mount Buninyong. Landscapes, spectacular views, and history. What's in Lal Lal? - the old station, nearby Lal Lal falls, and the hotel where we'll probably have lunch. This is a pleasant cruise suitable for all sized Vespa - and all riders. New members - a great ride for you too. Lal Lal was a family drive when I was…See More

Thanks for a great weekend at the 2019 Rally.

I would like to give a big THANK YOU! to Greg, Julie and anyone else involved in organising a great weekend.It was my only my second outing with the club and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Put faces to names, met some really good people and made some new friends.To top it off, my little Vespa didn't embarrass me! Although I am glad I had earplugs on the way home, I would hate to hear the noise from that little engine along the Glenelg Highway at over 80, plus I think my throttle cable is 20mm longer…See More

Hi Darren, I sent a message to Tufan but haven't heard back yet. The Glenmore and Geelong Bacchus Marsh Roads intersection is about 47kms from our start point. If we leave at the scheduled departure time of 9am, then we should be there around 9:45-10am depending on the traffic along Ballarat Road. We could meet a bit further along at the Glenmore and Bacchus Marsh-Balliang Road intersection if you wish.

Hi Darren, have you decided that you're coming on the Lake Goldsmith Steam Rally Ride? I note that you have to be back on Sunday so shall I book a room for you on Saturday night? Best wishes, David
