Blur 150

I choose a blur for a few reasons. You can read my write up on my blog at:
http://www.windmeadow.com/node/50

I got my 2006 Blur for $2,500 and had a different dealer offer me a 2007 Blur for $3,350.

Unless you want the retro look of the Buddy, I would say get the Blur.

I would say the Blur, but it really depends on what you are looking for. Sportier style and performance vs. classic lines and sporty.

I originally was planning in getting the Buddy, but once I saw it and a Blur at the same shop, I know it would be the Blur: bigger tires, rear disk, stiffer frame and all the things that make a Blur different than a Buddy.

BTW, $3,800 seems high. My dealer had the 2007 at about 3200+tax, lic, reg (about another $200). I think he still has one left, but you are probably 10 hrs away from us.
FYI

Yeah, $3800, even OTD, seems kinda high for a leftover example of a discontinued scooter. Don't get me wrong, I <3 the Blur, but that's a lot of money for a 150cc scooter.
