Guzzi Gal - That's my sister's chihuahua Thor. Apparently he identifies as Scandinavian.

I would love to ride with your crew! I visit AZ frequently because I have family in Phoenix, but my lx150 won't get above 60mph. Hard to imagine getting on the freeway with that. Although when I bought it here in LA it had a Milwaukee license plate frame, so SOMEBODY did the Route 66 thing with Salvatore at some point...
HA, Thor is adorable! Trailers are wonderful things. Razz emoticon Even if you don't have Sal, we'd be happy to have you at one of our eat-meets. We just meet at a restaurant, eat, and have a good chat.

If you know you'll be in town and might want to play with us, check out our club events via the link in my signature below.

Guzzi Gal, I'm sincerely humbled by your inclusivity. I look forward to taking part. Thanks for accepting an old newbie like me!

Stickyfrog! I used to drive a van back and forth across the country fairly often when I played bass in a rock & roll band, but it's been a minute. If it happens again I'd be honored to buy you a beer or 4!

I'll hold you to it. We have a great distiller and brewer here in Nashville, IN called Hard Truth Hills.

Welcome to Modern Vespa. I've owned 2 LX150s in the past. They are an enjoyable ride. Be safe and have fun with yours.

Thank you Fledermaus - and for all I know it WAS your 1st scooter. Sal hails from Wisconsin originally! Although judging by your name there woulda been Batman stickers on it.
My ride's still out in the garage! Didn't see a year on yours...

Yeah, there are a couple of bat decals on my scooters....

2006. Any chance that it was yours? It had a black Milwaukee license plate frame when I bought it.

Edit: duh - you JUST said yours is still out in the garage. Maybe they're from the same litter!

Cool! Yes, he is a nice guy and a dedicated scootering advocate. I just posted our Tucson Mural ride with his club this morning in Ride Reports.

Here's some shameless promotion for Howard and his crew. Laughing emoticon

OK, I also offer a beer (wine is better) if you pass by my area. I hope you will come there sooner or later ...
