Re: Do I need a green card?

Thanks for the reply, I suppose the situation will be cleared up by March 29th as either we will be still in the EU or not. I will wait until then before sorting anything out.

Do I need a green card?

Bearing in mind the situation with Brexit, I am travelling to France on my scoot in June, will I need to obtain a green card in addition to my European insurance cover?

SIP Two stroke oil

What is the difference between SIP,s Two stroke oil for Twist n Go and the Two stroke oil they produce for classic scooters. Is it safe to use either in a classic Lambretta. I happen to have a bottle of the Twist n Go stuff and was wondering whether to ditch it or not?

I don't know how many people would agree but I regret the loss of Scootrs.

As I said previously I was happy with the Sito but if the Scootopia would give me the same or similar performance the...

Re: Exhaust Question Sito Plus/PX200

Thanks for the info Shaun, Am I right in assuming the diameter of the connecting pipe on the Standard 200 is larger than the diameter on my existing Sito Plus?
