We're kinda like you two. Wifester has a 400 Burg, and I finally joined in the fun with a 650 Burgman. We're a 2 Burg family here.

So, what was the most admired machine at the Flying Fifteen Motorcycle Club's Spring Opener?



A 1964 Sears Allstate.




Seriously, I saw more people looking, and taking pictures of it, than of any other bike there.

You didn't ride today, did you?*

*Dumbest question ever asked.
If I'm breathing, I'm riding!





And before anyone jumps to conclusions, yes I do have a handicap plate to park there.

My 25,000 mile '08 Vino 125. Currently in storage in my living room with the gas tank and carb drained and connected to a battery tender after a several hundred mile trip a couple of weeks ago. Now riding my 2012 Zuma 125 most of the time. Will get a picture of my '09 Stella up asap.

A vintage scooter made of metal v big slabs of molded plastic? I'm not a bit surprised the Vespa garnered more attention. Rightfully so, plus it was parked next to that butt ugly KTM to accent the contrast!

On a related topic, I looked at BMW scooters today, YIKES! Man are they ugly. Just a mass of tupperware with as much style as a refrigerator.
I guess I really don't like maxi-pad scooters, though that Honda 700 somehow looks pretty good to me. If that's still a scooter.
