Occasionally I take my scooters to Vespa Clearwater to have maintenance done on them. I do most of my maintenance but I like to take them to someone who sees Vespas innards everyday as opposed to me who sees them sometimes. So, since I am getting ready to do a 2 to 3 thousand mile trip into the cool north after Thanksgiving I decided to take Big Red up for routine maintenance and a good look over.
Recently Stefan convinced me he would look better on my 300 than I do and took it away from me. I thought that was great as Big Red has been a great ride for years and 63,000 miles and I like it better than the 300.
But....last spring I almost bought a new 300 that last time I took a scooter Vespa Clearwater. We went so far as to fill out the contract but at the last minute the deal fell apart. What the hell, I had three scooters and needed no more.
Then the I started watching all the reviews on the 2023 that actually has some useful additions that make up for hiding the dipstick behind the exhaust.
As I dropped off Big Red, Matt started telling me about the 2023's that are arriving next month. I started to salivate and my checkbook started to glow. Fortunately my wife showed up and whisked me away in her car.
I well have to go back and pick up Big Red. I hope someone makes me leave my checkbook at home!
