In January 2021 I dug out my long-parked GS160 and it started right up but had a fuel leak. I joined a Technical Vespa Help group on Facebook and shared a little video looking for advice. After getting advice from a guy in Scotland I was able to rebuild my carb and fix the leak. We continued chatting scooters and scooter rallies. Their big rally was cancelled in 2020 and would probably be canceled in June of 2021 also. He invited me to come over for the June 2022 rally and I made plans a year in advance to attend.

It was my longest ride yet at about 110 miles and my first scooter rally. In early June it was only 50 degrees and very windy when we launched. Luckily the ride back wasn't as cold.

It was a fantastic adventure, and I met a bunch of amazing people.

LimaAlfa,

Thanks for sharing your adventure. Looks like a good group.
The beginning of June was also cold and windy on this side of
the pond.

Your scooter looks great.
