Scootering around

I’ve been thinking a lot about buying a Vespa or a scooter in Philadelphia a lot since last year. SEPTA starts to kill you after awhile and they always want to go on strike every few months it seems. Now with gas prices nearing $4 a gallon, the scooter is even more appealing. Yes it can only hold about 2 gallons of gas, but at 45mpg and being in the city, why care? It’d be a great thing to have for when I dont feel like riding my bike over to South St. from West Philadelphia. With these increased gas prices, I’m anxious to see how business is at the Vespa store. Would you buy a scooter? I’m curious to know.

    Hrm. I’d probably get a bike instead of a scooter, just because it’s something you can only use during the non-snow times of the year.

    You know, that IS a good idea. I’d get a Vespa and ride it around town, too . . . except my commute is from Bristol to Cherry Hill, NJ. I don’t think I’d make it across I-95 on one. Or if I did I’d be submitted to much ridicule by passers by. And never mind the toll booth!

    Bikes are cool, but I want something that has power!

    Jay, I would pay good money to see you on I-95 on a Vespa.
