That's expensive! For that price I can get an old Miata and I'll still save enough gas and drive on the highway.

Well with 2 people on one of those things I can't imagine it'd be going very fast so they would just leech the dogs to the scooter and walk them as they go.

i have a vespa ET4 that i drive when i want to save gas and be sure i don't get a speeding ticket. it is like skateboarding to work. it puts you in a good mood.

I love it and can't recommend the thing enough. you gotta go ahead and get the Grantrismo. it is the most powerful vespa ever at 200cc.

they are expensive but they hold their value more than about any other bike. go on ebay and see how much a forty year old vespa goes for. they are more expensive because they are flawless and run great. i have had no problems with mine.

it is a nice change from the WRX. I am also buying a Honda Hawk 650GT. i need something to take on the dragon...which is a curvy road you can only dream of driving on since you are way up ther in canada ---the new land of the free!

Well, after taxes the Vino is @$2000 cheaper, yes. But only seats one.
I've always like Vespas. It's the look, the style and definitely the marque.
I've got my dream car already. time for the dream scooter!
