I just checked out the webpage and it seems White Ribbon Day is actually today - Weds 25 November 2015. Lots of events around the country so I'm guessing Sandy's decision to have a ride on Sunday is so that more people are available to attend with it being the weekend and all that.

Look forward to seeing you all there.

I'm 100% behind you, Rob. I rode geared scooters for 45 years, over 600,000 km. Did I suddenly cease to be a real man when I bought an automatic?

All the assholes who go on about "classic" scooters don't know what they are talking about. There were many four-stroke scooters around in the '50s and '60s. While I was at university in 1960 a mate of mine was riding an automatic scooter. All one can legitimately do is set a cut-off age for "vintage" scooters, say 30 years old, and then that would exclude most PXs.

The Vespa GT/GTS/GTV is most certainly a "classic". So are some of the heavies, like the TMAX.
