Last year I rode my wife's Blue 2006 in the LakeErieLoop. For those not in the know, the LEL is a race around Lake Erie for under 200cc bikes. I finished the 650 mile sprint in 14:12. I had a gas can strapped to the rear rack (1.0 gallon can) and used it several times. No big hills to worry about but had pretty crappy weather with driving rain for about 200 miles. The wind sucked as well. The scoot was fitted with a Yamaha factory windshield, a Garmin Zumo and a beaded seat cover. I was amazed at how happy my ass was after 14+ hours with that beaded seat!
The 2013 LEL is coming up on June 7-9 and I'll be doing it again on the Blue Vino. My 14:12 time was good for second place in my class, first went to a Yamaha RD125 who only beat me by 15 minutes!
