Bought my first Vespa this summer and loving it. I was first exposed to the Vespa brand in 1989 when I lived in Sicily. I drove a Fiat 500 at the time and was the envy of all my young Italian friends who were in high school at the time. In Sicily there is no driving cars until you're 18, so while they envied my car I envied their motorcycles and scooters (mostly the Aprilia motorcycles). Anyway, here I am 30 years later and finally own both a Vespa and a newer model Fiat 500. This is real nostalgia for me and I'm loving every minute of it.

I just got the same exact bike without the topcase. What a nice bike to ride and so much fun. I snapped it up when it went on sale in September.

I use it all the time. Picking up groceries, carrying my lunch, etc. I wonder how I got by on my old Harley without this storage.

No kidding. I hop between scoots and a Vulcan S which has zero storage. PITA once you get accustomed to "storage luxury."
