What kinds of gas scooter do you have (No E-bikes accepted)

Vespa PX200E, in pieces bought new in 85 Lambretta GP TS1 225, bought in 92 fully restored (that means trailer queen, and not running at the present time) Piaggio MP3 500, May 2010, Daily rider

What do you use your scooter for (work, pleasure, errands etc.) and do you ride year round?

The scooters have always been for fun and a big part of the social scene that I'm into, ie: from being a mod, scootboy and finally a scooterist in the vintage scene.

How did you become interested in scooters?

Being a rude boy and a Mod in the early 80's it was a big part of the scene, or you were a third class ticket until you had a scooter.

How long have you been riding?

1985

How far from home have you ridden?

Went to PVSC's Scootalot just outside of Pittsburgh and Gettysburg, PA as well this year. Cape Cod was the farthest that I've ridden. To bad the scooter only made it there one way! Next years plan includes Amerivespa in Wisconsin.

Introduction

Been into vintage scooters for years, just getting into the new stuff.
