This is the story of my '64 Vespa 150 - how it became mine and how it has given me a new vespatude.  I'll be recording the neat places I visit, the different things I do to make the Vespa my own, and - oh yeah - those reactions I get from both friends and strangers.

A week without Vespa
I'm back. Last week I was on vacation to Fripp Island off the coast of South Carolina. The family had a lot of fun. Heebie stayed here in Greenville. The first chance I got, I hopped on the bike and started it up. After sitting for a week, it started up on the third kick. I'm going to drive it to work this morning.

There were a number of scooters on the Island - only they were all these little Elite moped type scooters. You could rent them during your stay. Most people on the Island preferred golf carts to scooters. My family used bicycles.

But that's not all...

Saturday, after driving up from Fripp, I hopped in a car with a friend and headed up to Charlotte to attend the NASCAR All Star race. It was loads of fun. I kept my eyes open and even found some scooters there as well. This is a picture of a YAMAHA scooter - looks like it is probably a 50 cc type. There were two of them with the NASCAR logo on them. I also saw them during the race along the pits.

Now that I'm back I'll get to my email and stuff. Vespatude should begin to get some updates now.
