Yes it is, one sweet ride. I don't know why, but the headlight looks a little small to me. But I'm hardly an expert.

In first version I just drilled speedo plug(I buy new repro one cos don't want to drill original) and put in mount of gps-speedo with zip ties.

But few thousands km later it cracked. So I just cut hole for gps-speedo and attached it with super glue(used gel-type for flexible joins).

So when speedo was attached on its mount it was easy to take it off for charging or when I leave scooter on the street near work. But on the other side it sits bit high according to handlebar.

In second version for charge speedo I need remove it with speedo plug. But now speedo sits much lower and I like more how it look.

Well I won't be standing up in a tree to get those tricky overhead shots, but I am gonna try to post here FIVE days in a row w/ different bikes to celebrate having all FIVE bikes here running at the same time(probably for the first time) showing you some of the interesting places around here.
I'll start with the Cosa, usually a problem but it starts easy(low compression) and runs fairly strong.

It's Friday and today is Laiki or street market day in my neighborhood. I waited til near the end to avoid large crowds going thru on my scooter - as long as you are careful and slow, ppl are used to it and very tolerant.
Most of the booths have fresh produce, some sausage, cheese, dried fish, olives and spices as well.

Nice scoot, street scenery and artichokes. What a cool city. Have you ever ridden out to Sounion for some seafood and the beach? We went for the day in 2019, went swimming at a small beach, and visited the Temple of Poseidon. Incredible views.

This Saturday morning, I took a quick ride on my P80X up into Suisun Valley, right in my neck of the woods. It's just over the hills from Napa, California and an easy getaway. Lots of nice twisty country roads.

Zach, I've always had too many passengers to take my P200 out to Sunio, and anyway I like to scoot too slow & leisurely for most of those maniacs driving out there on that twisty road. Those little pocket beaches are my favorites close to the city.

A beautiful Saturday here too, and my old pal toeMOSS (Thomas) available to show me new places today. I wanted to see this big park at the top of our local 'mountain' near his house. He told me first someplace even higher with a great view. Also a surprise ending so this will be a lengthy post. Let's go!
Yep, what a view!

That patch of orange down at the port is Chinese container cranes where they have leased and are developing a big chunk of unused port frontage.

Voodoo, me too. So, wow what a nice park and bit of artwork in the city! By the way when we drove out to Sounio, I discovered that there had been many unfortunate drivers over the years, going off the road to their demise. We saw these small memorial boxes that loved ones had built at various points along the coastal highway. Here's one.

And we had probably one of the best lunches of all time at a tavern here.

Your psarotaverna, fish tavern is called "Eee Meritha", The Portion. Just call that number and ask for Anthony .

The small memorial chapels are common here, sometimes in out of the way places like in a straight flat place in the road across the top of our mountain on wifey's island, Kefalonia .

I'll have to check it out next time I'm out that way Zach, can I mention you by name?

Today I took out that fast noisy smallie w/ all the old decals from the previous century, it is such a peppy little thing. Colder weather and low on gas and it was getting late, what to do? So I only went eight blocks away over to our official "Town Square" right across from our local administrative offices, or DimarCHIo. This is where they have official celebrations, etc and is a favorite neighborhood playground.
a view from the middle of the lower play area looking at town hall

the upper part of the square, you can see all the coffee shops and bars that line the left side, pretty much the same on the right but opposite the town hall is an interesting experiment in public housing and zoning flexibility bult ~50 years ago.

The whole city block is filled with tiny houses arranged in four rows of ~twelve houses each facing two narrow access alleys open at both ends. This end of the block faces the square.

Some kind of administrative office on the left, I liked the place on the right. You can see that many have tiny gardens. And yes, you can drive your car to your house, just can't park there for long.

Terry, I'm loving every single one of these posts.

We definitely need more pictures from the docks and waterfront, though.

For a variety of reasons, I haven't been able to even ride a scoot the past week or so, much less wrench on one.
Your wish is my command and I'm riding enough in strange new places for BOTH of us so you can relax. I'm posting late, but yesterday it was even same bike, but improved. Since upgrading to the 20L carb, the famous XL2 clutch has been more of a bother. It was both dragging bad and now slipping worse, so I grabbed a Malossi upgrade kit w/ new corks, steels and six stronger little springs. (Did you know you can rebuild the clutch IN the bike, no more lost woodruff keys!). Still drags a little bit, but much better and getting more so the more I ride. And it does NOT let go!

But you mentioned docks and waterfront and I have for you a current look at the large commercial area between the tourist boat harbor and the new Chinese container port being built to the west.
We begin w/ colorful workboats. You can see the Chinese cranes in the distance.

I love it, Terry! Definitely digging all the working waterfront imagery.

All I did today (so far) was go get lunchtime taco's on the Smallstate. The weather is pretty nice, so assuming my wife isn't too jet-lagged, there may be a liquor store run in my afternoon.

So, I'm doing the DGR again this year and was trying to find a way to tap different pockets. I decided to ask my beer money providers if I could do a charity barbecue lunch for their staff. The Dealer Principal (at our local VW dealer) agreed so we set it up. They generously donated $300 to the cause and I got to spread the word to the mainly male staff. Had to get the sausages, bread, sauce etc from home to there. This is how.

I'm back in the USA loving the weather here and raring to go. I was surprised when all three 'roadworthy' scooters here fired up after opening gas valve, pulling choke and giving a few kicks.

I decided to take the oldest & sketchiest one out first(AllState w/ Bajaj motor converted to eight inch) before something bad could happen to it Facepalm emoticon

Edit: forgot to add that the quick little AllState did just fine, no breakdowns or trouble, and it still surprises & thrills me when I hit the gas

On a good sized stream with nice shade trees and benches here and there. It's actually just next to our local shopping area so it's popular in the summer.

You can see it's not small, it feeds from here a short distance into Lake Washington.

If you can read the sign, it describes how salmon migrate up this stream.

First ride out of the neighborhood for Lucy. Over to the Saturday farmers market to pick up some eggs.
Shot this photo in front of the egg sellers 1979 Grumman utility van that he spent the winter removing the primer and polishing.
Makes polishing Lucy's original paint look like child's play.
Motor by Mattgyver runs beautifully.
8" wheels are very fun to ride on.

Only use it for short periods when I have eyes on the scooter. Is handy to have though.

Another gorgeous day for a ride and some snooping. Today I will show you the largest seaplane operation in the country and a few of their planes. I've always taken the place for granted, but just learned that it is the biggest.

Another one, check out the regal snoot on this old lady. They have complete shops here and have remanufactured many of these themselves.

They told me could fly me and some friends up to Nanaimo on Vancouver island for some scenic summer riding etc, but avoiding a day's boring freeway traffic, border lines & hassle and long ferry boat lines for $189 each! + ~$400 per scooter...

I used to love watching the seaplanes take off and land in Coal Harbor (Vancouver, CA) back when I used to get out that way for work. I never got a chance to set them up close like you have.

My grandfather flew Catalina PBY's in the navy during WW2 after he got too old and responsible to be a test pilot. He was in the first naval aviation squadron on the USS Langley that figured out how to operate planes off carriers. They crashed a lot of planes, but lived to tell the tale.

A country lane in County Durham, England on the morning of King Charles III's Coronation - who needs television when you can ride a scooter instead!
