Modern Vespa!

HERE'S MY CURRENT RIDE, a 2009 Vespa 150S - the perfect runabout for a college town like Lawrence, Kansas! It'll happily zoom around at 50mph as needed on major roads, out-accelerate most sedans, yet still provide 60mpg or better. And I can park across the street from my KU campus building - just try doing that with a car!

I got this automatic-transmission scoot after a nasty accident in July, 2009, that left me without the use of my left (clutch or vintage-Vespa shifting) arm for several months. Since then, I've put more than 10,000 miles on this little ray of sunshine. It's gotten banged up a bit from careless drivers knocking it over in parking lots, hence the growing collection of stickers (to cover the dings and spread some cheer).
