Hey, that's my video you found! :D :D

I got an Elite 110 now and just came back from a 700 miles weekend ride from LA to San Luis Obispo and back. What do you ride?

I would love to see a pic of how you set up your Elite 110 for hauling camping gear.

Got a few to share here?

Oh, I've been itching to go scamping for a while now - my Buddy, I think, could handle all the gear better than my Metro, but the nearest campground involves a trip down a 55mph road - and there's no way in heck the Metro would be able to do that. The Buddy managed to do 49mph at WOT, and thankfully the worst I and my fellow riders dealt with were a bunch of Harley riders doing 80 and whipping past us as we pulled over to ride on the shoulder for a bit... I really need to find a more 50cc-friendly campground route!

google maps, options...'avoid highways' and/or 'bike route' could be a good starting point. that's what I do. :D
