Gina shares the current stable with Nelly (Tornado 900). Had a Vespa 150 Super when I was 18 and my dad courted on a Maicoletta. 2 wheels are in my blood as I'm also a Time Trialist and general headcase. Gold E46 ragtop and Fiat Coupe 16VT are my current/most recent brum-brums. 61 and won't grow up. Acquired the 2003 250SL on 6th June 2021 and so far have lifted the screen to height position 3 and replaced the OEM seized shockers with YSS jobbies with 2 chunky washers each side of the replacement units+original spacer on preload 2/5. Replaced the worn Avon Viper Stryke boots with Pirelli Angel Scooter. 25K miles used but not abused workhouse from Cov with yearly service for sub-a-grand so happy days. A few scuffs but nowt of consequence. 20mm thick Neoprene sponge bonded to glitzy, reflective Jintan top box with pillion back rest solid bumper lump. Just changed my n/s rear light bulb without removing the rack and top box. No mods to the rear panel hooks performed either and re-installed the 2 x 10mm bolts for rear light integrity so not to rely on the 2 x latch panel/cover screws.

Love this bloomin’ thing. Way different riding style-wise compared to Nelly. Gina’s a keeper. A lot more stable than my 1978 teen years (18) Vespa 150 Super and surprisingly spritely. New shocks and front boot made a helluva difference. The 250SL is almost a well-kept secret ..

Good to hear Rob, you may want to consider upgrading to DrPulley sliders next time you have the variator off, they made a huge difference to my old SL, stops the requirement to time overtaking manoeuvres to perfection.

I had the X9 500 and the X9 250 Evo and an X9 125 and my best and one i keep is the X9 250SL Its the only one without an immobilizer Saves key and Ecu problems when they go funny or lose key and the only one i found to be the best out of the X9 range for reliability when properly maintained.
