Going fast is over-rated. I've never been one to drool over the guys with motorcycles or sports cars. Some girls dig the whole speed thing but I'm more of a sightseeing kind of lady. That's why the Vespa GTS 250 is my dream ride. So now you know...I'm a scooter lover.
I've had an interest in scooters since I was a little girl. They're just so cool. Sometimes I daydream about riding a silver Vespa on European streets, kind of like Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday (but I'd drive better, she was a total mess). I'd especially like to see Paris and Amsterdam by way of scooter. I'll visit museums, take loads of pictures and dine on yummy French cuisine. Ooh la la!
I used to joke around with this one friend about starting up a scooter group after I interviewed some Christian bikers for a story. I thought why couldn't scooter enthusiasts have a similar thing? Thanks to the World Wide Web, scooterists and scooter lovers can meet up...and to my delight I've found out that there are many scooter groups already in motion. In the words of Rachael Ray, "How cool is that?" So in light of the new year, I'm going to make saving up for my dream Vespa a serious ambition.
Some people may think riding a scooter is corny but I won't let that stop me. Being corny is under-rated.
