    i lied. she made a last minute decision change to red, the slower color. :wink: it's a woman's prerogative, i guess!

    She looks good in red. :clap My wife suggested we get two red ones. Then said, "No, one red, one black - so we don't look so matchy-matchy."

    When I said, "You pick first," she picked the black one. It it any wonder we cannot figure out the fairer sex? :evil

    Our experience, so far, has been the red one is faster, the black one gets better mileage. Or, perhaps: I am heavier handed on the throttle? Or, on the seat? :lol3

    Congrats to the Mrs. on her new scoot!

    Best wishes,
    Captain Jim

    Nice scoot! Is a bigger windshield the first option?

    Your wife, aside from looking happy on her new scoot, looks great on a red one. I'm surprised at how much it resembles my red SYM HD 200 EVO. You would think they're related.

    Congrats on the new scoot, and also congrats to a poster who said just walk away and let her decide. Words of wisdom if there ever were.

    And really,within 3 to 6 months she will want something different.

    Best not to get too attached.

    Grats on the new purchase! Those PCX150s are definitely among the best-looking modern scooters on the market now.

    So you're in Seattle? When are you coming to a Vespa club meeting, Scooterist Happy Hour, or rally?

    Right on! I'm the dude leading that ride, actually, so whether you come to Cafe Racer or just turn up at Scooter Barn come say hi. I'll be on the scooter in my avatar.
