My dad and mom rode all over town on their vespa scooter. The were known as the scooter couple in Garden City, KS.
Dad passed on July 8.
I wanted to keep the scooter in the family and offered to buy it from mom.
I started to ride it home to Medicine Lodge. Only to have it quit west of dodge city. They hadn't riden it in quite a while. I thought that mice had gotten in the housing. But when the belt goes it looks like that from the vent hole. Got it back to my mom's house.
I've ordered the belt and my brother had a hitch and he pulled it on a trailer to my house.
I look forward to interacting with others here.
It is a 2006 GT 200
