Default I'm getting a Motor Scooter :)

I pick up my Aprilia Scarabeo Motor Scooter tomorrow!
I'm soooo excited! I've only wanted one for 5 years!

Tell me you think of it!



I will start riding it in November, after I get back from my mini-vacation
to the Bahamas for Halloween.

Wow, October is going to be a GREAT Month for me!

Just Imagine a Big girl on a Motor Scooter in NYC! Watch out!

Yeah, if I was standing on the street, and saw a fat girl on one of those, I'd probably spontaneously combust.

Thanks! Yes, I'm getting the green one. It's a 2003 with only 45 miles on it.
They don't have the color choices like they used to. Aprilia Scarabeos now only come in Navy Blue, Metro Silver and Black. They once had a broader color range.
I love the red one too, (That's the one I first rode in Bermuda).

I think I can get used to my little Green apple!

Oh, you crazy goth kids and your... black clothes... and... Tim Burton films... and... nine inch nails albums and... motor scooters?

Yeah, i'd've gotten it in black, too.

Default Thanks for your input!

Thanks for the comments! You guys are making me even more excited!
I hope I don't cause anyone to combust! ech!
But I'm certain I will be noticed. 1. Grinning Fat Girl on little scooter. 2. GREEN scooter.

(not that I especially want to be noticed, but then again, as long as cars can see me they won't ram into me!)

I'll post pics next month, definately...

Yeah, I don't think anyone will not spot you. I certainly wouldn't miss you.


Didn't they used to say that having sex with a fat girl was like riding a motor scooter?

Congrats! I love scooters. I got a Vespa when I was 18 and used Vespas on and off throughout college. They provide a bit more protection than regular motorcycles, it's easier to carry stuff with you, they get great gas mileage, and you can park them anywhere.

The only concern I have using one here in the US is the general thoughtlessness and carelessness of automobile drivers. With all those 8,000 pound Ford Excretions lumbering down the road, mostly populated by one person who has a cellphone plastered to their ear... it's a bit of a risk.

Sweet ride. Just be careful of traffic. I'm thinking of getting the luddite version of the scooter (a tricycle). Just put a helmet on your head and a neckerchief on, so mod!

These are my thoughts exactly as I'm reading this thread. Almost word for word. People just don't look out for anyone in anything other than cars, and so many are driving huge trucks and SUVs (thank goodness the price of gas is going to nip some of this foolishness in the bud). I think getting a Vespa would be fabulous, but (and this is just me), motorcycles on the road anywhere in the US is problematic. I'd be much more inclined to have a dirt bike or quad. But then, of course, it's just for entertainment and not exactly for getting around town. One thing's for sure, there's an undeniable sense of freedom that comes with riding a bike or scooter that you just don't get with a car.

I'm guessing from what you've posted that you're an experienced rider?

(sorry if you've already answered a similar question, Allie. I got to Conrad's post and had to say a figurative "amen!" so I haven't read the rest of the thread yet)

Allie,

Cute scoot!
Should be a blast

I recommend taking the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's Basic Rider Course as soon as possible, if you haven't already.
Wear a helmet! (...and gloves, and long sleeves -- if not a leather jacket -- and shoes/boots with ankle support.)
And, on a bike, being noticed is a good thing. Loud clothes save lives!

One more thing: You'll need to exercise your "grin" muscles.. they're going to get quite a workout
