    Thanks, glad you enjoyed it.

    As of last weekend, the dealer in Dahlonega still had one SC250 left for $3499:evil

    BTW, the bike it replaced as my 2 up bike was an R1100GS.

    great story and pictures, I had no idea you could ride a scooter two up in the mountains. For years I have been telling my fiancee that she needs to get one.
    She's a slow learner on my Xr250, after showing her these pictures, she said she would love one like that. Thanks!!

    I when to see last week-end a 2010 sport city aprilia cube. Was not sure because of some old bad story about reliability. I did love the bike. But now i find this site and those pictures and this nice story. I was hopping something similar will help me make my decision. Fantastic. Thanks verry much for this nice post. I put this on my computer favorites. PR

    Thanks for your nice comments and the fact that your first post on this forum was here. As for reliability, I now have over 14,000 miles on my Sport City and have had no problems with it except a leaking fork seal.

    Change of plans! The sportcity was ready to arrive, but, 1 phone call, made a new chage in my life, and, a 2007 vespa gts 250 ie, in my garage. Yellow full chrome, picutres will be taken later this week. A vespa is not wath i call sporty, may be softy, but sometime we say : Nothing is lost, nothing is gain. The style is their for sure! Its fun to ride again!

    Congratulations on the new scooter. The Vespa uses the same motor as the Sport City. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Now I expect to see your first ride report as you take a long trip on your new scooter when the weather warms up.

    All this congratulatory stuff is well and good but now it is just about Spring -officially no less- which means there is no excuse for not showing some more pictures and some more rides. Time to get scootering methinks!:evil

    Spring??? Someone forgot to tell the weather man. Predicted temp for tonight is mid 20s.....and I'm getting ready to ride to work:ricky

    There is a snow/sleet in tomorrow nights forecast.

    We did have some spring weather last weekend. I did take some pics of a ride I did on my Kymco.
