After last winter slipping about I changed car tyres to four winter tyres. The transformation is unbelievable. Traction is excellent through snow, on ice and also heavy rain and slush.
The car is a rear wheel drive Lexus GS300
The Tyres are Pirelli Sottozero Serie II.
Vespa GTS With Zelioni Parts fitted.
Un-boxing, detailed views and fitted Zelioni items. After trying to find review of Zelioni products with little success I thought to make this video. I hope that it may help!
VESPA GTS 300. Rideout 3rd Feb. Filmed with a CONTOUR ROAM 2 in 720 at 60FPS.
Took my Vespa out for the first time this year. Fixed my new helmet cam to my lid and filmed the journey. The film was shot over an hour so edited with music not wind noise!
The scooter is a 2009 Vespa GTS 300 with only 700 miles on the clock, I bought it last October wit low mileage and haven't added much to that over the winter. I fitted an Akropovic and it sounds lovely. Other options are stainless steel running boards, front and rear rack, stainless suspension cover. I'm waiting for a Vespa single sport gel seat to be delivered, that will complete the look.
The scooter itself is a wonderful thing, pulls nicely and is a ball of joy wrapped up in a beautiful parcel. If you're thinking about buying a modern Vespa, just do it. You'll also get a lot of admiring glances.
The roads were damp and diesel patches everywhere that's why my riding looks odd, I'm trying to stay in the dry on the road!.
It was a good ride but cold and only one car came a bit close, hilighted in the movie.
I feel that a helmet cam may make cars be more wary of you, I seemed to be getting more room but then again maybe it's because I ride a Vespa and people seem to be friendly towards them.

Big Rig gets away from driver on an ICY ROAD almost hitting cameraman.
In the aftermath of a winter storm that glazed roads over with slick sheets of ice many drivers were caught sliding, unable to control their vehicles.
a test of the winter tyres on my 1 Series
Forgot about this rather steep little hill (camera doesnt do it justice but see the angle of the trees) whilst taking a shortcut through the back lanes to avoid traffic. Just about got up there second attempt using the entrance to a field to straight line the corner, quite surprised as the Falken Eurowinter tyres have their limitations on ice, like anything without studs.
