I've mapped out a potential ride for tomorrow too, which we can all talk about when get get together at 2:00. It would take us through some scenic areas of West Austin and Rollingwood, and looks like it would take 45 min. to an hour, depending upon stops along the way.

My driveway? I see you are coming to west Austin. I wish I could come. We'll have to plan a lunch meeting some time on a weekday.

I'm sorry to hear that. I expect that we'll be at Texenza (formerly Seattle's Best) at 5th & Lamar for at least 30 minutes (till 2:30) doing some socializing first. If you can still make it, we'll be looking for your scooter.

Guys sorry I missed out. I have been trying to get everything squared away with a new baby on the way. Today I cleaned out the garage. We are trying to find all our old baby stuff so we can get it cleaned up and ready. In the next couple week's I'll be starting the nursery. I am going to do a waynes coat painted white with a sponge faux paint on top in pink. The crib and furniture will be black.

We bought the bedding and it is a black and white print with pink accents. Hopefully it comes out okay.

I also have to work on my back yard we had a dry creek bed put in and the rocks got all washed down to the bottom during the rain storm last year so now I have to do some shoveling.

My life has been crazy lately.

If anyone is up for a lunch greet some weekday it would be awesome. I just don't have any weekend time.

He had an opportunity come up that he couldn't pass on, but was very sad not to make it and gave me a big bar of chocolate to make up for it. Guess I coulda brought that with me, huh? Well, it's very tasty!

I could do that . . . my office is on West 6th, and my schedule is usually pretty flexible. Feel free to PM me. And, good luck on the nursery!

Thanks guys. I have a meeting on Tuesday that usually runs long and I usually don't get out until 12:30 at lunch. Thursday's don't work for me but any other day.

Maybe a Monday when PudNRidr can find time.

I work next to City Hall on Cesar Chavez.

I think any place around downtown would work for me. (As long as they have scooter parking )

clue for current tag location:

It's not much like the Champs-Elysees, but this location on Mirabeau's boulevard will have to do.

Bokent...I think I saw you around 6:00 p.m. going northbound just behind the Target off I-35 (north-ish). I just started screaming, "That's Bokent - there's Bokent!" I was in a car, so you probably didn't see or hear me.

I LOVE my little Vino. It's just right for me. I can touch the ground and control the weight. It's my mocha truffle.
I tried David's Vespa 250 and
it was too heavy & the proportion of tiny incremental turns on the throttle to the rate of acceleration made my hands sweat and I couldn't breathe. Maybe I'll grow into it.

It's such a shame that Vespa doesn't make a physically smaller scooter. Many women I know won't get one because they just are too big for them to feel safe riding. Lots of motorcycles have much lower seat heights...which is weird.

I think I know what the new TAG is, but have no idea where it is (yet)...

I have no idea why they don't make a smaller scoot either. My wife is 5'1" and little. She cannot touch the ground on a S150 that we tried while I was waiting for my scoot to be fixed.

haha try my BV500

I agree they are awefully big. I'll have to have my wife sit on a Vino sometime. (She still doesn't like any 2 wheelers but puts up with me and mine for the most part).
