I pocketed thirty four hundred dollars this morning for my Vespa GTS and now she is gone to Bob, a snowbird from Kansas. I know it is supposed to make one feel better when one's cherished motorcycle goes to an enthusiastic new owner, and perhaps it helps but I am sad to see her go. Bob lost a two stroke Vespa P125 to Hurricane Wilma and he was pining for a replacement. He's lucky Vespas command no market down here("Huh? I could get a Harley for that!") but with that cash my Bonneville is paid for. And my wife has promised that she'll let me ride her Vespa ET4 from time to time to ease the bitter loss.
