Yeah but it feels like shit and you don't really get to enjoy much of the countryside. 100 km a day is optimal. This way you can stop to visit natural/historical features along the way. If that's in Europe i would even do less than 100 km a day to spend time to visit old cities.

Don't take anything, the weight savings means you will just cruise through.
The more you bring, the more you'll need to compensate for weight.

No, that's just proof people with zero technical knowledge or skills are always going to be retards and get ripped off. It's no different from people with cars that don't have a clue even about the most basic shit like how to change a wheel or dead bulb so get ripped off when they pay someone to do it. Unless it's some major fuck up with the electronics I could fix anything that goes wrong with mine and made sure of that before I brought a decent scooter.

question for all you bikefags and scootfags: how do you transport your groceries, shopping, etc?
>>

bikefag here, racks obviously
dunno about scooterfags, I don't think anyone goes grocery shopping on those but you could just use a big backpack I guess
>>
>>1597414

Scooterfag here, I use a large bag. Can easily get a weekly shop in there. You can get baskets and small bag attachments but they look awful and can be expensive so I'd recommend using a bag instead, preferably one with good back support if you're thinking about moving around a lot of things in it.

>And why don't we have a high-speed rail line running down the East coast of Australia connecting Cairns, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, etc.

As much as we'd all love to see HSR from Brisbane down to Melbourne it just doesn't make sense. The distance is enormous, the population comparatively small and the cost astronomical. All these routes are already served adequately by planes.
Apparently HSR will be built between Geelong and Melbourne, routes like this are about the best we can hope for.

With most scooters I see being chinkshit with design flaws like the handlebar stem lock breaking I was considering if I should get one of these. I know they've never updated them in comparison to modern scooters but they're so simple and tough they don't really have many ways to break. Battery upgrade is probably the first thing I would do honestly.

Anyone have experience fixing old mopeds who can help me out?
I always wanted a moped and a guy not too far from here is selling pic.
He's pretty sure the engine is fine but it doesnt' start so he assumes there's something wrong with the ignition. Other than that it's just some minor things that need fixing, mostly cosmetics and he has all the parts that's needed to make it run.

I have no experience working on these things and he wants $1200 for it

i'd pass on that.
way too pricey for a non runner, kinda cool but not particularly rare or old enough to justify a full overhaul or restoration if you don't have the parts or knowledge on hand - it could easily cost you way more than it's worth to get it up and running.
old 2 strokes are cool though - just wait for a better one ? for that kind of money you could likely pick up a tatty but serviceable p range vespa - far more practical / durable than a moped but you'd likely need a license.

Imo if you want a project, and it's your first time owning it, get something that does run/work.
Be it a moped, car, bicycle, anything old basically.

anything old like that is going to be enough of a project to keep running.

you need experience to restore something from the dead.
