Scooters Rock

Well a couple of us stopped by a scooter shop. Guy owns the shop very knowledgable about all types of bikes. Had some great history of regular motorcycles there as well. From a R1 down to a Honda 70, with some dirtbikes thrown in for good measure.
I knew this was a real scooter shop cause he knows Neal.
If your down for a bit of motorcycle history would recommend checking out the place.

He did mention that and I know he does CMRA. He had a scooter older than you, there. Cushman

He is a CMRA racer, and when I brought out my Zuma scooter to race it in a couple of TMGP events back in 2006 or 2007 he was bringing his for most of the season, running sprints and stuff on a race tuned step thru. Super nice guy all around. If you are gonna buy a scooter, buy one from him.

Only you can tell us if your memory serves you correctly. But I think you are correct.
Was intersting to see a Vespa from 20 years ago and how similar they are to a Vespa today.
and no I am not buying a scooter.
