Feb 11th, 2015: Wayne Biggs who was diagnosed with Lymphoma and is told he had months to live is riding across South Island, New Zealand in a noble and brave gesture. The ride, aptly named ‘Tiny Wheels for a Giant Cause’, aims to increase awareness and raise money for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer in New Zealand.

This father of two boys in his orange T-shirt and orange Vespa  GTS reached Walter Peak, Otago yesterday.

Michael Huddleston a friend who started with Biggs on the trip had to drop off due to an unfortunate accident.

Please visit the fundraising page – http://www.leukaemia.org.nz/view_event_profile/2713 – if you wish to donate to Leukaemia & Blood Cancer, New Zealand.

If rumours are to be believed, a revised new Vespa GTS is on the way for 2014. The chassis will be upgraded and the engine will be replaced by the 330cc unit from Piaggio X10 350 and 350 Beverly. The engine power will obviously be more than the current GTS. Minor upgrades to the block can be expected. Details remain sparse.
