It may not seem epic to most, but it was for me. I've been waiting to get a Vespa for over six years, now, and I finally took the plunge! My LX 150 arrived last night! I studied up on the manual and took it out on the streets this morning.
At first, I thought I'd just be taking it around the block a time or two to get used to the feel and handling (I'd never ridden a motorcycle or scooter in my life!), but I soon threw that idea out the window. It was so smooth and easy to balance and maneuver! So I took about a four-mile round trip tour of my neighborhood. I even rode over to my mom's house to show off. :]
I really had so much fun in the short amount of time I spent on the 150 this morning. There is next to no learning curve (except getting the scoot off the center stand...) and it was such a joyous and pleasant experience. And it was certainly nice to have some wind blowing on me on this hot, muggy Oklahoma day!
I can't wait to get back out there later on today...but now I have to go help set up a dinosaur skeleton. Today is a day of adventures!
