I spied a grey Vespa with checker board stipes down the cowels (and top of the helmet) this morning heading north on Riverside. Half-helmet and a smoke on the go. Spotted him last week in the car and got this pic.

I saw a guy on larger grey/silver Scarabeo scooting on Greenback at Sunrise during my commute home last night.

I was stuck at the light behind all the cages...

We've been tagging.....
Zuma, since Theron introduced the game to my wife Mercedes and me, we haved tagged at least 4 to 5 within a few days. Looks like they haven't popped up at the shop yet; I hope they do.

Pulled up next to a nice chap on X this morning. Red GTS with a matching topcase. Plates were from Utah perhaps? Unfortunately I couldn't get my visor up in time to have any meaningful conversation

Saturday afternoon- Jst, white scoot (maybe Aprilia, likely one of those chinese scoots), had the smallest topcase I've ever seen. My wife asked if that's for the guy to store his gloves.... Sure, gloves or a sandwich, but not both!

Seems likely. He has a yellow BR and lives in the East Sac neighborhood. Likely he was the target.

Vintage Yellow Bajaj Chetak.....
Over the weekend, saw a vintage yellow Bajaj Chetak at Target on Broadway. Very modern and clean with crate. Nice looking scooter.

haha!

Ya caught that, did ya? I thought about honking ... but my inner chicken won out.

We just got gas and were heading to the bank and then on to a S. River ride. We stopped at a friend's house for a little while then hit Freeport.

Might I suggest avoiding S. River after 7pm - Being the lead bike, I had so damn many bugs on my visor when we got home! She had like 5 ... Glad I had a full-face, though - kinda wish i'd had a turtle neck, too!

You gonna join us on Sunday, T?

Darn. I can't. I have the kids this weekend. Hmmm... Might need to look into a sidecar...

Saw Way Cool Rick on his way modified Rhonda. Had to stop in an intersection and give him a wave.

They need to make a beefier version of these for scooters with little kinfolks:



Then you could still lean, too

You could ride with me so then you wouldn't have to worry about looking dorky - I'll absorb all dork vibes.

Just saw you zoom by and you honked!!! I was just rolling out my LX!

Red Scooter (Vespa LX150) in the Land Park Area
Saw a few times a dude on a red Vespa in the Land Park area. Just this afternoon, heading west on Broadway and 15th St in front of Towers Cafe.

Saw a guy get pulled over today on T-street about 42nd .. I'd seen the scoot before - a real sporty lookin' import of some kind - maybe a yamaha with custom paint - that's my best guess. Lotsa blue and yellow.

Yesterday morning, I noticed a single headlight in my mirrors just before 39th on T and could tell it was a fly from back there - it was even red so it was really easy to identify (wife's is red and i ride lead alot). He had an aftermarket topcase and a kid on board. Kid had a helmet for sure - was prolly no more than 6-7 years old. Looked like they were enjoying themselves. It was the first encounter i've had with another fly since the MSF course a year ago.

First thing (after the ~snazzy~ Viva on the seat) I caught was the solar panel on the topcase ... it must only need to be used when he rides from East to West, I guess

Yep Sic.. I put that there the week before the rally, which is when the picture was taken... I just finally got around to posting it. I was downloading stuff off the camera and putting it away into folders. So I went ahead and posted it, in the chance that some one else had seen the scoot.

I forgot all about the solor cell I had assumed it was being used to keep the battery charged while it sat in the parking lot all day..

I really should cruze by there everynow and then to see if it is still there..

I was over at the Cycle Gear shop the other day, picking up a gift card, and these guys rolled in. Wish I could have seen them as they rolled in.

Heard of Ruckus.JPG
I think these belonged to a group of young guys who came in to look at jackets..

Here is an odd looking scoot I saw today, went in and asked about it.. (possible solution for the guy with the mp3, and to get Smrf off that 5 wheeled abomination...)
It is only a 150cc, that is slower than the Lance scoots they sell - which are slower than the LX150.

A very odd duck to be sure...

It does not lean, so probably handles like a block of wood...

Hey Wes, I think I spotted you if you have a blue/white and black jacket today. I was turning left on Old Auburn from Auburn you(?) were turning right onto Old Auburn. I also spotted SIC on Hillsdale turning right on Madison.

Just to insure the red "trike" can't get out of it's own way and move faster than 30MPH, they added a tow ball?

Where did you see this POS?

200 GT Plum with Top case
We were out riding around town today and came across this unfurtanate scene. This was at 15th and L street right at the corner of Capitol Park. It looked like someone ran a red light as the impact was in the middle of the street. The guy was already loaded up in the ambulance.

Oh NO!

There's a really nice looking girl I pass once in awhile with a Plumb + Top Case ... soon as I saw it lying on the ground I thought of her ... i hope not!

EECH!!

That just makes my tummy clench up...

Many hopes the rider's okay!
