I found and negotiated a great deal on a 2009 Vespa GT 250 for my sister-in-law’s significant other. It’s a one owner scoot, meticulously maintained with 1300 original miles. It even matches my sister-in-law’s silver LX 150. They are both thrilled to be able to ride together.

They compliment each other so well, congratulations on your lucky find. Curious to know, are they the exact same shade of grey or 2 variants?

The LX 150. I think the pink seat is the give away

I haven’t seen the new one in person yet, just pics, so I really don’t know if the colors are identical. I negotiated the deal from four states away. I’ll have to ask my sister-in-law if the paint shades are identical or just close.

I have gotten a few people hooked over the years.

Some of them, once they ride, they either love it or hate it.

Not much in between as the haters feel unsafe and nothing will fix that.

But several who loved it have purchased scooters and ride often.

Scooters are not for everyone, but once hooked, they gets into your blood.

That's what my first motor scooter looked like. I mean the same color. Enjoy and congratulations!

Getting other's hooked. Also called vicarious consumption. Either way - well done!
