Seppo - Thanks for the tip and the generosity intentions. I am probavly looking at the biggest road worthy scooter I can find at tjat time of year. the bike shops don't seem to be geared up for rentals this early. I may stop in and inquire though. Agreed on the 700 km per day. Only on long runs would that be helpful and averaged over 5 days I would be fin with 300 km days thrown in.
