A few months ago, I updated my blog; and a dear friend created my wonderful little scooter gal logo. Don’t you just love her? I sure do. So I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a scooter. A friend of mine bought himself a Harley Davidson; and I briefly considered going in that direction–but I don’t think I fit into the “biker chick” mold (or even the biker chic one).
A couple of months ago, I saw the movie Larry Crowne, with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts; a totally forgettable, summer flick that lasted in the theaters for about 10 minutes. But one thing stuck with me from this movie–the scooters! And when I was talking to my friend (and hair stylist), I found out that she felt the same way. Only she had followed through and bought herself a Vespa.
So I’ve been up all night, looking to see what’s available, what the costs are, and what I’ll need to do to get one–safety class, insurance costs, accessories and more. I am just loving the accessories angle too! But now I just want some opinions; what do you think? Have you ridden a scooter? Know someone who has one?
Let me know what you think. And if you decide to join me, maybe we’ll let you into our scooter gang too!
