What name would you like us to call you?

Richard

Tell us about your scooter (make/model/year/cc, etc.)

2006 Vespa gts250ie and 2007 Suzuki Burgman 400. I have an '83 Silverwing (not the scooter) that is in pieces on my garage floor right now.

What's the furthest you've ridden on your scooter?

About 900 miles (round trip) to Athens, OH, to ride in the Buckeye Hills.

Got a scary, funny, goofy, etc. scooter story you would like to share?

I ride all year round (although I get pretty picky during the Winter). The coldest I've ridden was a 20 mile ride at 22F.

Why are you a scooter owner? What brings you to this wonderful scooter group?

I rode off-road motorcycles while in my 30s but quit due to job and family. I've ridden road bicycles for 20+ years and got pretty serious about riding longer distances but developed back, neck and knee issues so my rides got shorter and shorter. Since I love two wheeling, I switched to scooters for my main ride. I still ride my bike but not so much.

Introduction

Retired; Scooterist since 2007 and year-round rider.
