See those old uk reg 2T scoots all over Europe, up in the alps riding the passes, no problem.

Couple of years ago, we met approx. 40 of them at Zeebrugge port, they'd been on a 1,100 mile round trip to a rally in Germany with only one breakdown fixed & caught up with the group. One had a huge suitcase strapped to the back, these boys were not youngsters, more like in their 50's.

Surely too young to be from the Mods & Rockers era  :008:

I rode a 180cc Gilera scooter about 15 years ago. Could not believe the rapid 0-80Mph acceleration  :005:

Wouldn't choose to take one through any decent twisty roads  :110:

!80cc Gilera? Most likely a Runner. And you wouldn't take one on any decent twisty roads? 

C'mon YD, with a fresh set of S1s or Contis they're untouchable in real twisties (double entendre intentional).
