I'm moving to San Francisco, and thanks to the excellent advice in this thead
, I have some idea of where to live and what to expect.
Now I'm trying to sort out personal transporation, and I'm thinking about getting a scooter (Piaggio, Vespa, or similar) instead of a car. Can anyone with experience scooting in SF help me out?
- Anyone know a good dealer?
- Any good sources for used scooters? I've been looking through craigslist but the listings are sparse.
- Do I need a special licence? Do I park it like a bike or like a car? Do scooters have to pay bridge tolls too?
- What sort of power do I need to get around effectively in hilly SF?
