. I have questions.
The one I have my eye on is a low-mileage 2008 with performance enhancements (two-stroke rather than the current four-stroke engine). It's beautiful and shiny and retro and RED, and it has my name on it
! Obviously I am far gone in scooter lust.
Background: I am 52, a novice rider but a pretty good driver, not a bicyclist, 230 lbs., not mechanical but willing to learn. I have a car for rainy days and hauling loads, so I'm looking at the scooter for bopping around town and weekend pleasure riding.
Do you own a Stella? How do you like it?
Does this sound like a good scooter for me?
Is there something else I should look at?
What do you wish you had known as a novice scooterer/scooterette?
What are the hidden downsides to scooters?
