So I've got 850 miles on the clock. And for the first time I've encountered another scooter, and it was another Vespa. I got so excited, I was waving like I was in a parade. The ridder was some high school kid, in shorts and a shirt, and I'm in full gear waving like a fool, he just sort of looked as he went by.

According to my unofficial tally, we've doubled the number of Vespas in St. Louis in a very short time. The revolution is picking up momentum. Make sure Jess sends you some cards to pass out.

I think they're getting much more popular around here too. I usually see at least 3 a day, whereas before I would see one every few weeks. I think it's helped that the number of scooter shops has tripled in the past 12 months.

Lots on the roads in Portland year 'round-- but they're popping up like daffodils everywhere now that the weather's turned mild (most days)-- yippee!

Saw 1 scooter today (red vespa lx) and about 15 harley davidson motorcycles. I live in Milwaukee . The harley riders don't really
wave or acknowledge me because I am on a scooter .

Woohoo!

If someone else around here would buy a Vespa it would double the number of Vespas in my town too!
