We stopped by the scooter shop and one thing led to another...

My wife has never ridden a scooter or motorcycle and she's short. She went out on a little 50cc Buddy to see if it would freak her out to drive one, and loved it. Because she's short and not confident, she wasn't happy with the weight and height of a Primavera, so she ended up getting the Buddy Kick 125. It really wanted to look like a Lambretta and isn't as heinous as a regular Buddy. Baby steps. The Buddy may eventually go to my son when she is confident enough for a bigger bike.

I wanted something more powerful than my VBB, that I could take on the highway and also ride when the VBB is getting worked on. Transportation worthy rather than Sunday drive where it's ok if I end up on the side of the road. So I got a 2019 GTS 300 Touring in the maroon. I swore I'd never get an automatic scooter, but the power and ease are pretty rad.

So excited to have a reliable and powerful bike. Can't wait to cruise around tomorrow! Pic attached!

A fine looking pair. I mean that for the scooters and the riders.

Congrats! Indeed a couple of fine looking scoots (especially the Vespa ) and couple.

Aslo congratulations on getting your wife on a scoot. You've beaten me by at least a season on that one.

Congrats! Nice looking scoots. In particular the Buddy Kick - which I wasn't aware of - and which, you nailed it, really wants to be a latter-day Lambretta --- it's quite cool looking and Genuine makes excellent small scooters.
Have fun with them!
