Hello Roy One.
The route I took was 125 onto 150 and then 175 all BSA. The scooter amazed me, on a good straight road you couldl just about touch 75 MPH.
Took a while to get used to but it made longer journeys possible so often popped across the border in to Wales. Great Memories. I had a few tumbles on Motor Bikes but never on the scooter.
I'm dusting off my helmet.  Gerald ..Garden Gerald.

Those Lambrettas are worth a lot more than I paid for mine, 199 Guineas as far as I can remember.
