    First 2 Wheeled Road Riding

    I got a motorcycle license and bought a scooter just 100cc as I realised I'm driving a USS Enterprise when I could be lightweight and streamlined just riding a scooter for some shopping or light commuting, no parking hastles and inexpensive, great!

    I Want Another Vespa

    I became fascinated by the mod scene in the late 70s/early 80s and I bought myself a Vespa as soon as I could afford one. We had a scooter club here in the town where I live and most weekends would be spent riding our scooters to various places to attend gigs or just have weekend...

    Confidence

    I am new to driving a scooter. Right now I am trying to build up confidence in 40 mph zones. I guess what prevents me from going that fast is the vulnerability I sense, not sharing the road with cars. I am practicing everyday I wonder if I will get over my fear. At least the...

    Loved The Vespa

    I don't ride one now but when I was living in Paris my boyfriend had a Vespa of some sort that I rode almost daily. It was great for zipping around town and even for longer trips out of the city. Not too far though. I loved the feeling of the air rushing over me, something...
