Vespa in Seattle
March 25, 2012 12:17 AM Subscribe
I live in Seattle (Queen Anne to be specific), and I was wondering:
(1) Whether or not a Vespa would be a great investment, better than a car, taking into account the layout of Seattle, for getting around the city, no major trips, and about as frequent as every weekend, maybe twice a week
(2) Coming from NYC and not knowing how to drive, what is the best approach to learning how to drive a Vespa? Is any sort of license required, and where would I go to obtain that license? How long would it take, if I devoted time to learning regularly?
Are there any issues specific to Seattle that I should take into account in taking up this project of learning how to ride and purchasing a Vespa?
Any general commentary about motorized scooters is also greatly appreciated.
