If one day you are just walking along and you have the urge to run and jump onto a moving train, then do it. It seems that the most fun in life can be had by taking small risks and making a move. But do not try to out run the train to the track crossing, I on the other hand had my part in this. nearly got run the hell over. if i had my Stella it may have been a bit safer but it was still fun. Now with two trips under my belt from home and back I have the logistics of the Stella/Vespa. It would seem that at 45-50mph it recieves about 90 mpg however at 55-60mph the milage drops to apx 80mpg. These figure may be just a little bit off but are close enough for government work. Even though this is suppose to be a site just for scooter I think that it is appropriate to place any info about adventures or anything that might interest people about scooters, yeah it is random. but thats just me.
