Ride safe . . . away I go again

There is no reason to ride without protective gear. I spent $130 on both the helmet and the body armor jacket from the Motorcycle Superstore- actually it was my Christmas gift this year. It was a good deal. Of course, you can spend more if you like to, but I wanted to show all of you that money is not a reason to not ride without protective gear. most helmets cost more than what I paid for my jacket and helmet. Ride safely!

Bye again.

Oh and P.S. I have not stopped riding obviously.

I am now riding a 1979 Vespa P200. I wanted more power and speed and furthermore, the market is flooded with parts and the Italian-made parts seem to hold up much longer and the quality control in Italy is different than India. A beater commuter P200 can be found in the $1500 (Bajaj) range, but you should be comfortable with basic wrenching and the occasional maintenance (or hire someone). The P200 is considered the work horse of the scooter world and actually complete the Dakar Race and is now racing in Budapest-Bamako Race right now.

First and foremost, Scooterpartsco.com is run by enthusiasts. We are active Scooterists who ride almost every day.
Scooterpartsco.com started over a Vespa Starter Motor. We run a very busy scooter repair shop and when the local Vespa dealer packed it in, we started getting most of the Vespa service. The first time we priced out a starter for an ET4, and then realized it is the same part that was used on a lot of Japanese bikes and is about half the price from them, we decided to figure out why Vespa parts are so expensive in the US.
We give options in vespa parts, malossi parts, malossi vespa parts, honda forza, honda pcx, yamaha smax, yamaha majesty, suzuki burgman and performance scooter parts.
