No more gay 8bhp scooter for us! Well me actually (n) Ann says she's not getting on it. Oh well it's faster with one on :D2

Had to run the engine to get the front wheel up over the see saw thingy, and of course with no reverse and probably standing on wet grass it will be fun trying to get it off :rolleyes:

"not sitting up there"
That's exactly what Ann said:D2. Didn't help it being on a paddock stand all winter made it look taller.
This is just a trial run, she'll be on it next year in Benidorm. She's not been well this year so I don't blame her.

Isnt that a bit heavy for towbar? Just going off my setup with Honda Innova that makes van (X250) a bit light on front. My axle weights are OK though. Lovely bike though!

It's not a towbar, it goes onto 2 chassis points (y) I'm leaving the 90L water tank empty so it will be about the same weight behind the axle as the scooter (103kg).
The Duke is 150kg

My towbar (Witter) connects to rack at 4 points and two additional arms to chassis. The weight of rack is 20kg + Innova 100 kg .Van weight on w/bridge came out at 1500kg front same on back axle. I keep it down to 60mph max. Could do with a lighter bike to replace Deauville-Duke seems very suitable. Saw a "tilting " rack somewhere seemed a good idea for loading/unloading.
