I loved riding the Vespa back in the early 50s before graduating to a Cushman Eagle. Does the Vespa still have a rotating handgrip clutch/shifter? That was one of the many things I liked about that scoot. All that said, I am happy you have wheels with a motor. BTW, I have a friend (Jim L.) who has no legs but rides a motorcycle - a goldwing trike - all over the country.
