Went through a full tank of gas after only the first day of having our scooter and I can't seem to get off of this thing. As I was putting together a list of items I needed to get from scooterwest I was watching some of Robot's video's on YouTube and he mentioned getting an additional 8% more speed by adding one little item. After doing a little digging it seems the item is called the ABS overdrive tone timing wheel disc rear so I ordered it.

Does it work? I guess I will find out soon enough and a real 83 MPH would be amazing.

Items I also ordered:
Top case Color Grigio Travolgente / Metallic Glossy Titanium G03 # GTS35N-TX-EU3
Air Horn by Stebel # HORN-STEBEL NAUT
Wiring harness for horn HORNWIRE-KIT
Tall windshield. Part: GTS16PA
Two Vespa keys Part: KB10-HPE
Two top case key # KB14 (The new top case comes with two keys)
Complete set of 4 turn signal # MI200-GTS-CLR
Powerlett plug for the quick charging on the Optimate charger Part: PSO-007
Tecmate Optimate 7 Select Part: TM-251v3

Can you see anything else I might be missing that is a must have that I might have forgotten?

Are you saying you've bought a new HPE GTS? It might be worth changing your profile, as many of the items you're acquiring won't play well with a 2011 Super...

Yes, we sold the 2011 GTS earlier this week and bought the 2021 GTS Touring HPE. I did not think I could change my name from 2011Super to 2021Touring but I would if I could Jim. lol I did however update my signature below.

I see I still have the photo of my old bike, updating now. Thanks.

Drop 10lbs and you might see 10% increase.

I did not realize that made a difference at the top end. You would be looking up from the ground and wondering how you got there if you were here now. 💥

Change the "Scooter model" in your profile, that's what people go by. Your username can be changed if you ask a Moderator nicely.

The tone ring update seems to get the most approval for increasing the speed limitaion.

It does, surprisingly. Drop 10 and pick up a few mph.

To your other note. I'd say that's doubtful. But if you want to strip to the waist and box in the back alley I'm game.

I'm not a big guy, but I've never found anybody that wanted to fight me twice.

(ETA)
p.s. thanks for the PM inquiring about my schedule to see if I had time to have a "quick meeting" tomorrow and asking if "I wanted to hang".

Sorry sweetie, but my dance card is full.

Let me know if your calendar free's up, it would be fun folding you up like a lawn chair little man.

Calm down boomer. That wouldn't happen in your wildest and wettest dreams.

Also, that would be "frees up" you absolute dolt. You banging moron. You fool.

Anyway, might wanna think about hitting the gym. Work out a bit of that aggression and maybe work off a few pounds, fatty. Probably pick up that extra 2mph you're looking for.

Xoxo

Not a boomer but nice try. Want to see my home gym, it's not very big but it gets the job done. We all know the kind, all mouth and hides behind a computer. Now that we have established the proper hierarchy again, feel free to reach out anytime tough guy.

*huge wanking motion*

But really like your posturing. Good job on the veiled threats too. Really liked that. Very power move meets alpha.

Solid work all around. Sure that your manager would be proud. Go have some michelob ultras and fist bump your bros. You earned it.

Thus ends our interaction

Nice move taking the laundry off before you took the photo. Facepalm emoticon What kind of funnel do you use to put oil in your bike?

I think we should concentrate on the gym and losing the 10lbs...

The ABS ring doesn't work. It only affects the speedo reading...

Going to the WC before leaving also helps...at least I think so. :?
I love you greasy, (like a brother) and would never think of you as a hostile person.
