    How many scooter riders do we have in middle Tennessee?

    Where are you at?

    What do you ride?

    Do you want to gather and do a scooter ride?

    I own a non-running 2008 Vespa GTS250. I'll get it fixed up and join you, although it'll be some time as I'm benched with an injury and can't wrench or ride for at least a month.
    I guess you could say my membership in your super cool scooter club is pending.

    Oooh our 2nd member very exciting news.

    Thumb breaks do count as valid reasons not to wrench on your scooter. It will heal by spring and braaaapp again.

    Actually I am in Dickson. We are not that far apart. There is a lot of really good roads between us. I have been pretty busy getting my house finished and neglecting my scoots lately but that will change soon.

    Greasy was talking about a KX500 build, I think he should ditch that idea and go bad ass scooter mode!
    I stuffed a 150 Daytona on the Honda, then it was too much for the stock suspension................and so it goes lol

    Wow. You're really enjoying that scooter. It gets in your blood, somehow.
    Sure. This is how it works. I get a scooter, no one else I know has one or cares for one. I ride it for a while and feel the need to sell.
    Once I do, now there's interest. Pffft...
    I do miss the ol Piaggio.
