I don't think so, it does sound fun though. I hope to make it to some local Portland rides this summer.

I got some inspiration for my pin striping from these crazy asian tact scooters.

Here's the newest project, a derbi gp1. I have all the body panels, just waiting on a new 70cc top end to be shipped here from the UK. People make a lot of claims about how fast these derbi scooters are, It's the first non honda scooter I've ever owned.

I know nothing about the Derbi's but heres one for fairly cheap. Maybe the GP-1 is the better model? https://spokane.craigslist.org/mcy/6183353137.html

I'm still learning about derbi scooters as I go, my gp1 is water cooled and I believe that craigslist one is air cooled. Still looks like an okay deal, I think they make bbk 70cc kits for that model too.

Thanks Mike, I was thinking about starting a build thread for the Derbi but I'm not sure how all the honda-heads would feel about it. :D :D

I recently sold off the one stock spree I had for years, never road it much so I sold it off to make room.

I've been hitting over 60mph on some high speed test runs, a little scary going that fast on a aero 50. I thought I'd be hitting mid 60's but my pipe might be limiting performance or this old nh125 is a little tired. But it does accelerate off the line very well and that's what really matters when the speed limit is 35-45mph everywhere in town.

Danielle, you are totally in the wrong place for asking this question.
I'm glad you've found this forum, but it has nothing to do with 750cc motorcycles.
In answer to your question, you will be best to buy HONDA PRO GN4 10W40, depending on your location
and average temperatures.
