I bought a Vespa today. R1150GSA will be jealous.

    Wow, and I thought that VespaFitz and R1150GSA were two halves of one unmedicated person!:wink:

    :lurk

    Maybe you can park the steel Shella out front and pop-rivet your mailbox to it.

    I've got something up my sleeve. I'm going to toast your Bread, man.

    Just wait until I reveal my latest "mod". Then you'll be crying, "oh, why did I ever think I could beat Kevin & Stella? WHY?!"

    I know what it is already.

    It's the chrome horncast.

    And hey, I understand. That bling adds a certain panache to the front end.

    But it won't be enough for poor Stella. :2cry

    Breadman...You're the one that snagged that! I was eyeing that lil' guy myself. I would've made the trip to see it, if I had been local. Were you able to knock it down a little? he seemed to be asking quite a bit for it. You wouldn't happen to be the one selling the Vino's would you?

    DriveShaft? You the same DriveShaft who might play an attorney on TV?

    Yes, I did knock him down a bit on the price. The scoot is in great shape, and there are so few of them for sale, I jumped on it.

    I'm not selling the Vino's, although I did look at them. The Vino 125 is so much of a smaller scoot when compared to the ET4, and I think the Vespa resale will do much better as well.

    A chrome horncast? Are you daft? I'm no festooner, you primitive!

    Heh...yep...that's me...although truth be told, I'm no attorney. These days I feel like a full time whippin' boy, the way work's been going. :whip
    I'm going to look at it if it's still available. My gf's thinking of it. I definitely get the sense it's not as substantial as the Vespa...but I've yet to get on it myself. It's been maybe 20 yrs since I've been on a scoot!
