Hi, I'm considering purchasing a Vespa GS. My original choice was RA but I changed my mind. Are there any pitfalls I should be aware of when purchasing second hand?
Thanks.

P.S. My current daily rider is a Honda Supercub 125 and I wouldn't ever part with it.

Well, you've said nothing about specific model, age, or condition. In the case of Vespas, I would be leery of older bikes with uncertain maintainance history and I would avoid Vespas with any significant damage to the metal body. When you find a scooter that you think is in good condition and well maintained, consider having it examined by a knowledgeable and experienced rider or a skilled mechanic.

Do you need to go over 60mph? I recently went from a 170cc scooter to a 250cc thinking I wanted something highway capable, but now I'm not so sure. The 170 is way more fun to ride around town and was much cheaper to buy.
