This morning 9am. corner of Alicia and Moulton in Laguna Niguel / Aliso Viejo.

Red not sure what, 125-150 size scooter with dealer plates. Cute young gal, probably still in high school, there are two a few blocks in either direction. She was turning on to Alicia. I pulled up alongside to say hi.

She was wearing a stylish brown leather jacket, 3/4 helmet with full face shield. The bad news, no gloves and for shoes those little ballerina slipper things with no socks. I said hi and asked if it's a new scooter. Big happy smile, yes.

The light was turning green and I didn't have enough time to suggest she glove up and get some proper riding shoes. I'm going to keep an eye out for her and suggest some additions to her gear. In the meantime I will send out positive vibes that she stays out of trouble and has fun riding her new scooter.
What are ya gonna do pull up beside her and start shouting unsolicited advice on what gear to wear?

There are a couple of new riders in our area. They went on the Joshua Tree ride at the beginning of the month. You can check out the pictures of that ride in the Rides section.

I think his name was Abe Froman....

I was so excited to finally spot and get a picture of a Vespa to post on this thread! Saw this one, with "Motoguy" on the front, on Beverly Blvd. in Beverly Hills today. Made me smile!

I think that might be one of those new ride service scooters. I've seen one myself.

Yes. I wish I could remember the name. There was a thread on MV about it.
