Rather then just adding onto my ride report on this scoot I figured I would just post a thread on the Vespa 946. Any and all are welcome to post anything you wish on this thread. Scooters (to me) are all about just having fun so come on in, I'll leave the light on for you. If you wish to read the ride report it can be viewed here. I'm creeping up on 3,000 miles quickly on the first month of ownership and thought I would post my experiences to date. When I got home from Austin I quickly cleaned her up because Bella was covered in bugs and grime in general. Later on in the near future I'll give her a proper detail. I used wheel cleaner on the rear rim as it had quite a bit of build up of brake dust and grim in general. Sprayed it on and hosed it off 2 to 3 minutes later. The clear-coat on the rear rim started to de-laminate almost immediately. <sigh>... So I called up Moto Richmond and explained the issue. A very nice gal in service by the name of Rachel Ballard said bring it on by. So I motored on down there, roughly an hour away and spoke with Rachel. I explained that I most likely caused this to happen and I didn't expect it to be covered under warranty. She took a few cell pics and shot the claim off to Piaggio. It was approved for a new rim in less than an hour. I was shocked! I made an appointment to have it installed the following week and there were no issues. I couldn't be more pleased. I guess once in a blue moon it pays to be honest! And a few pics from Moto Richmond.
