    Scootin around

    Just came in from riding my c650 gt and I have to say after ring it for a week and having not ridden for over 12 years this scooter leaves me no worries. This ride handles in the twisties I have used every bit of rubber on it and if it had more I would be able to use it

    I bought this Isetta in 1997 as a project. The engine was a seized paper weight and the car was up to its axle in mud. Everything was on the car badges and logo's, I took every nut and bolt off the car and restored it from the axle up to the sunroof. The project was 2 1/2 years. I drove it for about 6-7 years and one of the last drives was to the national in trenton. The car is now for sale as I have not used it and it is time to part ways.

    A bad day on the C650 GT scooter is better than the best day at work

    I get about 180 miles on a tank as it is still new I expect the distance to rise a little when I start touring on it next spring. The tank is small at 16 litres compared to most bmw bikes. From the stop light it takes a moment to kick in but when it does it goes quick. When you are moving as an example 40mph and crank it it will take off like any bike and accelerate to very high speeds fast. The bike will brake hard and fast with very little nose dive. Overall the scooter feels very light due to the low Centre of gravity and handles very well at all speeds.

    This is the tightest corner on the credit. A pick-up with a u haul trailer was just in front of me that took up both lanes on this corner that is why I stopped to let him get far away from me. I still caught up to him about 2 minutes later
