    Well that's the bees knees John and I would love it but to big for back of my van sadly, not keen on trailer any more either. With the RV the car was towed everywhere with it but now having found new freedom on my own with 6 mtrs van never go back to RV or towing if I can help it.. At the time though when I had 2 Great Danes had no option........

    I am wondering though if 100cc is enough when I see these mental Moroccan's driving......

    Should be plenty solo.

    Only question is can your van take the weight.

    :thumb: Would't be without my 125 Piaggio - with big top box and screen. Been all over Europe with it on the rack. Takes the two of us at a good pace and up some steep places. Arthur.

    I had one some years ago, little 50cc bought second hand for around £100, quite light on a towbar mounted carrier.
    I found it very useful for running to the shops with a biggish topbox, but useless on steep hills with a heavy b*gger like me on it.

    Well I dunno bout this. We've been up goat tracks up mountains in Greek islands in the past, quite regularly on 80cc Rev'n'Go scooters. On Kos we could see this radar station up top and wondered what the view was like - well we never found out cos it was all fenced off with a military guard wiv a wifle .... we turned round when we could see the whites of his eyes .....

    At that time Pete would have been approx 12 st+ and I'd have been 8 st+. I can't imagine discount scooter hire places spend all that much on having their motors tuned!

    So if it's a real road going uphill, why should there be a prob really?

    Suzuki Address 125 (4 stroke), same as the Honda Innova, basically a modern version of the Honda C90.

    Goes well, 70 mph possible, and 125 mpg.
