The mechanical complexity of the PX Vespa can be understood by someone with the technical ability of a michnus.
Going to need to carry a good few liters of 2T oil, dont think you can find much in Africa.

I'd give my left ball to do this.

dont think 2T is a problem actually. met 2 couples travelling thru africa on vespa's and not once was this even mentioned. in fact, dont think was mentioned on any planning trips
I love my bike..................

I've have in the past run two strokes on SAE30 for years with no ill effects.
No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.
