This would be excellent as a vacation. Briefly. I spent a week in a snowdrift in North Dakota one family Christmas and went mad on the second day. Never recovered either.

Cool Dude



This guy epitomizes for me the odd diversity of Key West's "One Human Family" philosophy. Nattily dressed unlike the stereotypical ratty waterfront bum and somehow riding a Vino 125 with a wide brimmed fedora. ATGATT is a concept not frequently seen in this town. If that annoys you let me refer you back to the city philosophy.

I understand the individual's right for ATGATT or not... but, how does one keep a fedora on one's head while riding?? If I am just running to the mailbox (about 5 blocks from our house), I may rotate my ballcap so it till stay on my head at 15 mph... but, a fedora? Tacks? Staples?

Part of a toupee fedora combo held on by super poli-grip.

Two stroke. The four stroke has an instrument pod and a hump on the floorboards. Very um, modern?

Key West

Where scooters are utilitarian elements in the landscape.

The wife and I always hit key west almost every year. I went over to look at a real ratty blue zuma one time. It had 32000 miles, I was like wow. I hate how everything is left out side and all rusty though

Traded my Moto Guzzi California for this a couple of months ago. Straight across for a change didn't cost me a dime. New experience for me - pretty cool for around town, running errands etc. Can't wait for spring!
