I love seeing pics of other peeps' Vespas, so I thought I would add mine to the mix!!!

My first scoot, a 1984 PX125E

She had ongoing engine problems, so I decided to sell her for something that would be 100% reliable. My Vespa is my primary source of transportation and I could no longer take the risk of having a break down on the way to a meeting. I loved how that PX looked though, the two-tone was beautiful and poeple stopped me everywhere asking questions...

I picked up a new ET4 from a dude who won it in a Starbucks contest. I got it with only 2km on the odometer, extended warranty and top-case for a great price, way under the dealer list!

Here are the ladies, just before they were parted for life.

My ET4. Super smooth and ulta-reliable; I think I'm in love!

Colin- Nice looking ET. That red really stands out. Isn't the paint on the Modern Vespa's/Piaggio's awesome?

I'm not sure what kind of tires they were. They were on the PX when I bought it. I know they weren't one of the well know brands, as I probably would have remembered seeing the name on them. Sorry!

Oh wow, if I were you, I wouldn't have been able to part with that PX. It's too gorgeous. It couldn't be fixed or something?

For sure it could have been fixed, but I'm not really that mechanically inclined, I don't have garage space, and don't have the free time to do repair work myself. It would have been expensive to pay the shop to do the work, so when an ET came up at a great price, it made much better financial sense to sell the PX and pick up the ET.

Unfortunately (for me), the decision was one based on cash, not aesthetics.

Believe me, it was difficult to part with!
