I rode their 2012 Wee-strom back in late summer & it was a nice ride but The bike had been put together by Fred Flinstone & actually was not safe in some ways-have to be a real deal to buy there. I did read some on ADV today on the Aprilia Scarebo 500 which is much the same as Piaggio 500 & several there like them a bunch but say the Italians are sluggish when you need a part for the scoots or their bikes. There's one on Ebay now that has a very informative ad from a true/rider/seller. My bikes sitting & ready to go. I'll probably stay nearer to where you guys live this time as that last motel further south is kinda shop worn!
    I will chime in here and say that if we can coordinate this effort , you are welcome to ride my 650 Burgman at the same time.

    I say we have a faceoff of scoots! I did read an Aprilia Scarebo comment the guy said he had fun easily beating his buddies fire breathing Ford F150 in a green light dual. maybe thats where the term cliche "it really scoots" comes from?
