I am very fortunate to live close to my work office, I don't even have to get on the interstate. For years I had been telling my husband that I wanted a scooter - my stepmom had one forever and I always loved riding it. A few years ago, right when gas started to skyrocket, my wish finally came true.
I figured I would get a cheap little scoot to tool around town on but no, my husband said if I am going to get one I might as well get the best, so off to the Vespa dealer we went. My scoot has 250 cc's, goes over 80 mph and gets about 70 miles per gallon, in case you were wondering. I came across an informative article from the LA Times that I want to share as well.
