As honorary Club Mascot of this exclusively high-risk ludicrously fearless elite group, Blue and I are always cheering at the sidelines with choc chip oatmeal cookies and lemonade* at the finish line.

GO GO GO!!!!!!

(I'm a bit jealous and wish I could achieve plaid, but Blue's motor is a feisty kitten, not an upgraded tiger)

Congrats, newest members!!!!

Not till they have a 70/8 club!
However, 80+/10 on INDIAN rubber is AnaKey's best! Scary Quick... while looking at tyres to see they were still there, when I should have been watching the fast-approaching T junction! I did give the ute I passed the thumbs up though

100/8 sounds far better... we use km/h, so 60 just isn't that exciting.


BTW; how does one request membership in this club?
(When it runs) Speedy uses digital speedo('s, as there are usually 2 coz I had a spare) & easily gets 60/100 on 8", with 70/112+ being achieved whenever possible, however, once I've worked out that once it gets to 73/118 it's probably time to stop looking at the speedo & look at where I'm going, so I've never seen anything above that except on the Dyno where it got 82/132 before I buttoned off (& still pushing 10hp)... all on 8", coz 10" is less agile (& boring)

Rad! Great pics.
We make membership on your honor.... with one requirement. Post up a GPS screen grab from your mobile device. If you have already done so in another thread just post the thread link. That simple.

The exact requirement for membership in the 60/8s (or the 96/20's.... Kmh/cm) is below:
Quote:
1. Did you pilot a Vespa with 8" wheels?
2. Was it Ludicrous? (Ludicrous = exceeding 60mph on those 8 inch wheels)
3. Did you post GPS verification?
You are a shoe-in! Jump on in!

Well on my first ride with 8" wheels and I blew right past that 60mph achievement and took out the 70mph one too

Wasn't even near full throttle either.


Scary fast.

Those SIP tubeless 11'' rims are really throwing me a curve ball. The math is telling me 90's on 11".
