Yes you heard right, a Sydney Winter Ride!

Riders of varying small street beasts from far and near braved the coldest Sydney weekend temps of the year for our oxymoronic winter beach ride .. Following the success, hilarity and entertainment brought on from our last two group rides and filled with a mix high octane fuel (most of us) along with a good dose of adrenaline and spirit, we did it once again last Sunday, with the largest turn out to date, thanks largely to our adoptive, supportive and inclusive friends from the Hunter community and the other ‘small bike’ world of the Honda Groms (insert shameless shout out…. HERE) namely SydneyGromSquad and Gromzunited, Thanks Team.  

The meet up point: Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, Sunday 10am. Fresh clear skies and even fresher temps! Everyone was impressively timely, considering some of the distances travelled prior to arrival at our meet up location. With a starting group of 50 riders, we took to the obligatory tour group photos in front of the most iconic harbour backdrop in the world (Thanks Sydney for putting on the show).

After getting the friendliest nod from the Federal police presence at "the chair", our ride began.. Armed this time with a few tasty give away treats for the first rider’s raffle and the largest group assembled so far. AWESOME WORK TEAM!!

We rode the Sydney city streets, The Harbour and Spit bridges northward on through the forest lined Wakehurst Pkwy on mass, to the world famous Summer Bay!

With a glance to the side of the pack every now and then, the onlookers were waving, most in dismay at what was unfolding in front of them, some filming on their mobile phones what essentially was, lots of big kids, riding fast little bikes, having the time of their lives!

When we all finally arrived through the hairpins and winding suburban streets at Palm Beach (Summer Bay) car park the drone was launched (thanks Tom), the rides were lined up and the raffle was drawn!

 raffle time!

Battery Care in Colder Months

Scooter batteries hate the cold nearly as much as we humans do, and that chilly winter weather can play havoc with your scooter’s power supply. Where possible, store your scooter in a garage or out of the elements; this will ensure that the battery remains in a better condition throughout the winter months.

As your scooter will not be ridden as fast, far or as regularly a bit of extra vigilance is required. Listen to how your battery starts the scooter before every trip, if you can hear it losing power or struggling to start your engine, then it's time to charge up. Instead of removing your battery to charge, Trickle Charge your battery regularly and take your scooter out for serious spin most days and at revs over 5000rpm to keep the battery topped up, this will keep the power supply healthy and reliable despite the cold.

There are a number of reasonably priced trickle chargers available online with extended connectors. It is easy to install and will give you more life out of your battery.  If this it too difficult visit your local battery shop and they should be able to install for you.

INSTALL - Trickle Charger

Step one - Unscrew all 8 screws around the top and side your front battery box, including the two forward facing screws at the bottom behind your front forks. Remove the back of the box carefully and lay to one side.

Step two- Pull back the rubber housing on your battery terminals to expose the two bolts. Using a 10m socket or screwdriver, disconnect the battery leads and bolts. Using the connector provided with your charger connect the RED (+) on RED and BLACK (-) on BLACK insert charger connectors flush on top of the battery connectors and reconnect the battery terminals.

Step Three - feed the charge plug through the cup holder or under the battery box for easy access to the charge plug.

Step Four - Replace battery box and screw back into place. Simple as that.   

It is worth bearing in mind that extremely cold weather can cause your battery to drain more quickly than usual. We won’t go into the science, but we will ask you to keep an ear out on your battery’s energy levels when starting. Your scooter does have a kick starter.. follow normal starting procedures with key switch to on, run mode on brakes engaged and a tiny twist of the throttle... note: all it requires is a gentle push.Simply place your foot on the peg and push down and back. Do not use excessive force as the splines in the kick starter can be misaligned due to excessive force. 

The cold weather can affect your scooter in other ways too, so remember to have your machine serviced regularly throughout the winter, keep your battery on a trickle charge to ensure your starter capabilities. Regular services and bolt checks are suggested to ensure your safety and your scooter's longevity on the road.

If you have any questions always feel free to contact us for assistance.

Bondi to Palm Beach Ride!

What a perfect day for it too.... most of the crew met at Bondi at 9am just before the 'Sculptures by the Sea' crowd turned up in droves! needless to say there were many heads turning and a few sunburnt arms by the end of the ride...! all in all the scoots got put through their paces on some of the most scenic roads Sydney has to offer. The northern beaches were spectacular and the road leading in to Palm beach proved to be a great source of fun, long winding bends and undulating hills. if you want to know more or join the next run please just email us.
