Besides all that, everyone knows green is the faster one.
Green might be faster but if is Italian then it gotta be red.
Congratulations on your decision and purchase. I get compliments on the Green Hornet all the time. I was seriously considering red until Dandy Doug got his green Vespa. That did it for me and I’m very happy with the color and the machine. It’s even better than I’d anticipated. I’m sure you will be happy. Ken
I’ve already purchased a wider/ taller screen for the colder weather but I haven’t installed it yet. I’ll ride without a screen until it’s too cold that way, then install the “winter” screen. I like the way the scooter looks with the touring flyscreen but not the airflow. It may never be reinstalled. We will see.
I have a large Givi screen on my Aprilia Scarabeo 200, and it extends the season, til the snow gets here in Winter.....Mine blocks most of the wind, and it does extend to the hand area. These are very popular in Europe, where scooters ride year around....
I also installed some heated grips, to help with the cold...
Keep me posted please.
Green is one of the colors of Italian flag!
Red, is always the best when it comes to Italian bikes and cars, sorry, Gren is cool but red just looks stunning.
Well we have both green (mine) and red (Steve’s) buy I prefer my Verdu Esperanxpza to his Rossi Vignoli. I do like thatBritish Racing Green though.
Strangely I never rode a Vespa although they have always been plentiful here in UK especially in the sixties but this one looks the REAL business..... I’d snap it up if I were younger REALLY, have fun it’s a great scoot.
How much younger do you need to be? I know at least two of us Verde Bosco (BRG) owners are in our seventies
I would be one of those over 70
Sportique Boulder posted a photo of the 94 year old who bought a scooter last week. He rode it home.
Another over 70 with a midnight blue one
I would like to shake that mans hand , and ask him how he does it.
Well, I’m just 81 having a few bikes in the garage able to be ridden BUT suffering from chronic heart failure I need to be extra careful, sometimes after getting up my legs feel disconnected from my body, it’s not a nice feeling I can assure you....
I can THINK about lovely bikes but must exercise caution before splashing out.
I am beginning to feel young, at only 63.
Well he's 20 years older than me,so I think that when he goes for a ride his 70 year old Daughter or Son,follow him in the car,so that when he stops to get off they hold his bike for him while he gets to his zimmer,which they take in the car.
Or at least that's what I will have to do.
But seriously hats off to him I hope I can ride in 20 years time.
I gotta say that my aged body finds riding a relatively relaxing, comfy activity. OTOH, real work is a whole nuther thing and I am being forced to abandon some work that I would do myself and move onto the next thing, leisure or labor. Picking my parties is a new dilemma in my senior years as I've been highly self-sufficient most of my life. My current nemisis, a bad left knee doesn't make riding a scooter that tough given the mount up is sort of "girlyfied".
Don't we Yanks all love it when the British express themselves in their unique ways, i.e., "before splashing out", etc..
Squar, welcome to the asylum... here's hoping you have many pleasant rides ahead of you!
What's a "zimmer"?
Zimmer frame aka walker.
