Amazing how most have multiple scoots. Can only ride one at a time. Who has family members that share the passion?

Vespa's should not be in the garage! They are works of art...

Summer storage. Easier to get out than from the lounge! Under the cover is a 1960 Austin Healey Frogeye. Neighbor has two other scoots stored for me.

I've always understood it as an unspoken rule that any true Scooter-person must have atleast 2. You need that backup for when the main ride breaks down (it will!). Then you you really need another backup for when the backup keels over, while the main ride is still torn apart. Then another that is in a perpetual state of "restoration". Plus the other projects in pieces that you'll get too one day once you collect all the parts; and finally finish rebuilding the first 4 rides. Then there is the inevitable daily search for another pile of crap rust bucket that you need to rescue. 100 is never enough

You forgot the one scoot relatively safe & reliable you need, without enuff power to get into much trouble and is already dinged, dented, scratched and scuffed enuff that it works as a loaner for that visitor that knows tng scooters, motorcycles or bicycles just fine and

'Oh sure, NO problem with some damn old shifty, lol. A VESPA you say? Cool!'.

i... uhhh... see a roll cage. does that like to go in a straight line or does it enjoy left and right turns as well?

and you gotta always have more than one. that way you can ride the one that's running while you fix the other. or you just buy another one because you're sick of fixing the broken ones.

Done done & Dunzo! I'll bring some of this good good good Oregon Pacific Northwest brew. One of the perks of living here is there are plenty of small craft breweries, with legit tasty drinks. I'm not a beer snob, but appreciate the good stuff as much as the next guy! I'll hit you with that PM, but whatever happens it would be sweet to meet face to face. Cheers!

Yes this is so true! All sorts of good things come from this place in many ways. I'm still stoked I got to meet you and Scootnewb/Chris in person a lil while back. Still looking forward to getting a scoot going and cruise the Oregon roads with you two! Watching your thread on the dual build is encouraging to say the least.

Modern Vespa for the win in all ways! Making friends here and all around the world. Best Scooter Club around

We were just talking about this today! How cool it would be to get together and go for a ride with you. Lots of time while wrenching to BS, drink coffee, and eat donuts. No buttermilk bars though, but I didn't have to get them, so they were perfect!

We're thinking of a ride up the coast to Yachats, or possibly from Noti to Cottage Grove. Sort of depends on what you want to see and roads you want to ride on. In my book, the coast to Yachats is way up there in curvy fast roads with an awesome view, but I'm easily swayed.

It's like at the end of that movie, The Last Samurai. The guy spent his entire life looking for the perfect cherry blossom. On his death bed he says, "I got it, they're all perfect!". Pretty much any road around here fits "the perfect road" profile.

Let's do this soon!

Thats really cool guys! I appreciate just the thought! I just have a few things to tidy up on my ride, and she'll be road worthy. Finally got my Oregon plates last week so I'm Oregon Official! haha.

Any road or scenery in Oregon is all new to me, so they're all the perfect road

But because Iím a mopar guy you are my mortal enemy.

My space is limited - 3 bikes, a small bench, and wall storage. The bench is big enough to do an engine rebuild if I clear it for the job. Way up high on the right you can see the loft space I just built to store household goodies and a spare project bike that will be coming my way.... I've pondered how to get more bikes in here but the limiter is my wife's car must park here at night and the other side of the garage is loaded with bicycles. Believe me, I pondered how - that's how the loft came into being

Since I appear to be why this started, maybe I can show the evolution of my garage:
Being built in 2011.









For the next 7 years I used it to death>













Then I decided I needed more room, don't we all?






Three years later I actually started building the extension.






















Now I have room to work.

Love the milk crates for their toughness.
Jim VB - what did you use for your flooring? Looks to be tiles of some kind - but look tough and durable?

Every time I open this thread - I feel the pressure of a xmas garage clean.

Mines a 2007 with a 2.4 liter and aftermarket turbo, been in the family since 2008. Bolting the kit on was fun, so is driving it now. They should have all been turbo charged from the factory.
