Just out of curiosity... What brand/model of trailer is it?
I was just going to ask that very same thing....
So, ahem, ????
Sorry, guys, I missed this question even though it came up more than once.

Actually, don't know. I kind of think jimc nailed it. Bought it used from tomjasz 4 or more years ago. Nothing on it indicating mfgr. Been reliable up to now.....I don't blame the trailer, just the idiot who assembled it and has 4 bolts jangling in his pocket.


As for me today, pretty peeved at whoever ran off with not one, but two paperback books from my reception room yesterday. Was working solo, not a whole lot of people hanging around waiting, but someone managed to score about $35 of reading material. Livid emoticon Livid emoticon Probably didn't want them, just saw an opportunity to lift something.

Had someone walk off with a crystal candy dish from a table about 10 years ago. Guessing who it was (companion of a patient-who was wearing an ankle bracelet), and doubt had any use for it whatsoever.
I'm the idiot that assembled it, but not the one that maintained it. Hard to know how many fasteners rattled loose. I retorqued everything once, but it was very low mileage in my usage.
So what you're saying is we have two idiots on the loose... Laughing emoticon

That looks very similar to my Harbor Freight 8'x4' folding trailer - except for the shiny fenders, which look very flimsy compared to my much squarer ones.
Unlike the harbor fright version, this one had welded panels. None of the flex of the HF. BUT, all of these budget trailers have scored of nuts and bolts. All needing occasional reviews. I'm sorry to read it was a scary adventure, but struggle taking responsibility for something sold 4 years ago. These trailers Ned maintenance too. And NONE, NOT ONE, is rated for 70mph. I'm disappointed, embarrassed, and defiant, all at once.

We got lucky and bought during the last recession so got 140K off ask. Here is part of the view from the deck. Very pretty at night as we have plenty of lighting so the city looks awesome. We have more seating areas off to the left but I love my little private spot in the back.

I realize now that the other picture wold probably been taken from one one of the town houses.

This is the negative thread though... It's still way too hot!

There's a spare scoot here you could ride if you are willing to get on an upgraded 2017 GTV... Even room in the parking spot for another scoot if you bring your own.

Nah, not just you. Something just so peaceful about riding through heavy rain. Combination of the pitter patter of the rain hitting the helmet, watching the water bead of the windscreen and just feeling alive. Good rain gear helps a lot though! As long as I'm dry and can see I'm happy. It can however get too bad though. Blinding rain where you can't see past it and ice I avoid.

Took my happy pills later than normal today, so I was super annoyed at the Vespa rider who didn't wave back this morning.

Now I did the cool low hand peace sign versus the Forest Gump waving at Lieutenant Dan I wanted to do.

Hate to say it but some Vespa riders are either:

A- Dicks
B- Have no clue about biking/scooting culture.
C- Think a friendly wave is dumb (see point A)

Unfortunately while there are a lot of us that are awesome there are a few above waving or really just don't care.

TBH a lot of riders in Toronto couldn't tell you a single thing about culture or the history of Vespa. They just want a cute/stylish way to get around town.

Usually scooterists here are friendly. I've wave at all bikers I can. If you're on two wheels, you get a head nod or an outright wave. I get how some bikers, with shifting and all can't respond (most of the time I get a head nod if anything from them.)

This guy was on a straight away and had cars in front of him going the opposite way of me. It just hurts a little more when it's a fellow Vespa rider, ya know.

Lately, I've been getting more waves from or back from Harley bikers vs the Power Rangers on street bikes?! It used to be opposite around here back in the '07-09 time when I was riding my 150 all the time. I used to never be acknowledged by harley or cruiser types and all the love came from the Power Rangers.

Now, lately it's been the opposite???

I think it's "B".

I get many waves back from various motorcycle riders - especially when I let them go past me on the freeway (for some reason, I'm about the slowest lane-splitter out there).

But I never, never, get a wave back from a scooterist.

It's possible that some of them don't think my MP3 is a proper scooter, but it's not a proper motorcycle either.

In almost a year of riding I have yet to pass another Vespa going the opposite direction, but when that day comes, it would be nice to get a wave.

I have ridden a number of times with other Vespa owners and scooterists, but we're all headed in the same direction. Most of the time anyhow.

I've put off my annual physical exam as long as I could. Finally, the office refused to renew my prescriptions until I scheduled. I called and all the doctors were busy or on vacation so I have a 1 PM exam with Kara a nurse practitioner. I'm not looking forward to her cupping my balls and asking me to turn my head and cough, I'm also considering declining her putting her finger up my ass.

"That kinky stuff" is not only NOT kinky in that setting, but a slight moment of discomfort can save your life.
My good friend neighbor across the street was ignoring and suffering through bouts of intestinal pain for the past two years (!) until they wheeled him out of his house and into emergency surgery for a large tumor blockage. A month and a half of hospital and secondary rehab and he's now home with a live-in health aide. The oncologist won't even talk about any need for follow up care until twelve weeks have passed. He's just too weak for anything. He really screwed himself.

I recall belonging to a group of 3 G.P. doctors many years ago. As I was waiting in the exam room, one of the docs, a very pleasant chap, but overweight and a cigarette smoker at that, walks in and just plops down in the chair and exhales. I asked him if he was having a bad day? He says- "Well, let me put it to you like this. I just had to tell a patient to lose weight and stop smoking. You think he's going to listen to me?"

I'd ask if that tan is "an all over one" but that maybe too much information for this forum!

Flasher. Glad you had a good time on vacation. That's all that matters. Are you sure you didn't go to a nudist beach? Laughing emoticon

Ok this has nothing to do with a scooter but as the thread has (NSR) in the title I guess is is okay!

Last Wednesday July 11th I ordered a carb kit of a weed-eater I was given. As this was just something to play with and not urgently needed I elected to go with the cheapest shipping FedEx / Post Office where FedEx transports the package to my local post office then my mailman drops it in my mail box.

Keep in mind this kit would fit a a box a deck of cards comes in and have room to spare so we are not talking something you need a large fork truck to load on a semi!

Tracking info finally showed up a couple days latter and show it was at the FedEx depot in Perrysburg Ohio which is right next to Toledo at 5:10 AM on Thursday July 12th. Okay that's not too bad. The destination at my end is just outside of Syracuse NY. About 420 miles.

Today July 16th I get an update saying it is now in West Virginia, okay I know about shipping hubs so a bit of a side trip is no big deal. Then I see where the estimated delivery time is "By end of day on July 23rd"!!!

Just for kicks I went to Google maps and had it plot the route and times for the trip from Perrysberg to my door and selected "Walking" Google says I could walk there in 139 hours. FedEx's time is going to be at or above 288 hours. So going by Google I could have just walked to Perrysberg Ohio and back and beat the FedEx truck by eight hours!

And if I could have found someone with a fast bicycle it could be done in 80 hours round trip. Heck even if the bicyclist stopped for meals and potty breaks and a nap now and then he would still be days ahead of FedEx!

Well, not today.
Edit: I've created a specific post on this project, rather than leaving it hidden here in the gripefest thread...

Yesterday I got around to trying to install the replacement front headset cover on my 150S (nicked the paint while reinstalling the windscreen, wanted to make it right). All well and good, until I went to swap over the US-spec turn signal pods.

The replacement isn't drilled for them.

This is a SIGN: "Hey Rusty, you need to do the Euro turn signal conversion!"

Welp. Scooterwest no longer sells a LX-series-compatible conversion kit. They have one, but the kit they sell now sometimes gets glitchy when installed on the LX/LXS bikes due to low charging system voltage at idle.

That said, they were quite helpful on the phone, and I'll likely find some pretext to buy from them in the near future (and I don't normally do online purchases!)

So, I have to roll my own.

[Specifics deleted since they belong in my other post.]
