Had alot fun over the weekend riding around on my buddy's 2020 Vespa 300 GTS....Quite a zippy little scooter, fun and a breeze to operate. Twist and go CVT auto trans. These things are not exactly in-expensive either for a new one let alone for a good used one. Vespas have that retro appeal I guess.

Only in CA or FL would a grown man even think about riding a scooter.

No scooters, but I picked up one of these cheap Chinese mini bikes last week for my boys. They had fun mobbing around the beaches in Homer with it.

Same here. I bought a pair of the original style Coleman red minibikes for my kids and they love ‘em.

I played around on them a couple of times and bought a Harley that I’m still learning how to ride. Note to self keep ape hangers well clear of mirrors…

That's a bold assertion. Point out where you think I lied.

Bigsqueeze: Unlike some on this post I have complete control of my ego!
Fun is fun - it does not need to be on a "hog" to enjoy the wind in the hair!
I and the VarmintWife bought a Yamaha "Zuma" several years ago and we just love it.
The VarmintChildren and VarmintGrandChildren just love to ride it when they come to visit as well.
It is dependable and a blast to ride here on our .7 mile long paved drive.
And on occasion I take it to town zipping along at 32 M.P.H. (thats as fast as I have had it going).
It has been exceptionally dependable and gets 123 M.P.G. (miles per gallon) with its 49 C.C. engine.

Yeah I own a scooter - wish I'd bought one sooner.

I had a scooter years ago. Vespa type but not an actual Vespa. It had a 125 cc motor, and was a very economical way of getting to and from work - I could go all week on less than a gallon of fuel. The downsides were that while it was good on the flat it struggled going up hills - I was living at Bondi Beach in Sydney, and on the hill up out of there I'd be getting passed by everything, including buses. With its little wheels and primitive suspension it also didn't handle like a real bike. Still and all it got me from A to B, and was a lot cheaper to run than my 5.3L Jaguar. More reliable too, truth be told. Not a patch on any of the motorbikes I've owned though.
