Like many Lambretta owners, the standard Speedo’s are rarely reliable and the one my Series 1 is no different. I’ve just rebuilt the engine with a cast iron Gori kit, so I’d like to track mileage as well as speeds.
I don’t want to add anything modern, even a SIP Speedo that keeps the looks. (I haven’t had much joy setting these up in the past). So, I thought my best option would be a simple GPS Speedo that didn’t need wiring and was easily removable. After looking around the internet I found a CYCPLUS on Amazon which I ended up ordering.
On my full face helmet I have a Sena Intercom, which I’ve been using successfully for a number of years now. I wanted to use the intercom on my open face helmet, but adding bits and pieces to the outside of the helmet is not aesthetically appealing.
This year the 4 Nations rally was hosted by the Lambretta Club of Scotland. Their location this year was Innerwick, next to Dunbar on the east coast of Scotland. Scotland is a beautiful country and it’s got some very scenic roads, but sometimes they can get very wet.
Day 10: Wednesday 10th July This was my last day in France, riding the road back to Le Havre. I didn’t mind. It was a lovely road with great scenery. That is if you plan the right road. I did notice that on the way down when I took the road to Albert last week, it wasn’t the road I’d took a couple of years ago. So before I left Amiens I got the Sat Nav out while I had my morning coffee. I realised the route was different and it was a less interesting road back. Unsure of correcting the route, I decided to stick with what I had and left Amiens for Le Havre. It was only 100 miles or so. No rush. If I get bored I could possibly reroute myself.
Day 8: Monday 8th July I had planned the trip well, too well. I had accomplished all of my visits with only two left to do on the Monday. My last day in Verdun with spare time. So I got out my maps and looked up places to visit that would be in the vicinity of my plans. I didn’t want to go too far or do too much. Tomorrow I was riding back north. I found a place called Eparges about 3o miles south east of Verdun. This would tie in nicely for my days tour.
