Watch out two-wheeled world

I’ve had a strong desire to own and ride a scooter since I got my drivers license. I wanted to have a Volkswagen Thing and a Vespa, they were my dream automobiles. My first car was a VW Beetle and that helped curb my desire for an old VW, but I have yet to quench the Vespa thirst.

A couple of interrelated goals on my list are to own a scooter (I’m currently torn between the Buddy Italia and the Vespa GTV) and to complete a motorcycle training course to get my motorcycle license. The latter of these two is officially complete! Last Wednesday I attended the classroom portion of the motorcycle training and then bright and early Saturday and Sunday I hit the range for 10 hours worth of drive time and on-the-bike instruction. After being on a motorcycle for two days, I started wondering if perhaps I would rather have a bike instead of a scooter. Only time will tell which two-wheeled machine will make its way into my heart.

    my heart has been set on a pale yellow lambretti since 16. I have photos of it! I’m going to have magnets cut in the silouette of mrs. peel and mr. steed to ride the windplate.

    🙂 did you get one, because I know this post is old..? (yes, I did come here to see if you are making photo project progress. I’m dying to see what you’re doing in there 🙂 )

    I haven’t got a scooter yet. I still plan on doing so, it just hasn’t been a priority. I was waiting for the 150cc Buddy to come out (which of course it has now). Maybe I’ll start my scooter pining again in the new year 🙂
