Arrivederci Italia :(

Post by fretman »

First, let me get this out of the way - :cry:

I didn't wanna do it, didn't think I'd have to do it, but a turn of events in my life has forced me to sell my Italia.
Either the Italia, or the Suzuki MC had to go, and since the MC is a bit more versatile in terms of what roads she can go on, she's staying on.

I have every intention of getting another scoot, in the hopefully not-too-distant future. Now that I'm comfortable riding a MC, I'm probably gonna be lookin' at a Stella, or perhaps an old Lambretta, if one appears at the right time in the right place. I'm diggin' the shifties.

In any event, I'm Buddyless as of tomorrow am. I'm grateful to Genuine, and this fantastic forum, for getting me into the world of two wheelers.
I hope ya'll don't mind me hangin' around, even though I won't have a club card for a while!

Now, it finally stopped raining in NY. I'm gonna go ride one last time, and try not to :cry: on the Pirate leather seat.

Peace and thanks!

:cry: Not a nice thing to have to do. But life is a rollercoaster. Good luck with eventually finding a new scoot.

Hang around all you like! Sad to hear you have to sell the Italia but happy that you're already planning/hoping to get a new scooter in the future!

Thanks LisaLisa. I'm lovin' my S40. It's sort of the Buddy of the MC world, bullet proof reliable design, inexpensive, easy ride, with a really nice , helpful user forum (suzukisavage.com). I'll miss the Italia, but I was riding the S40 much more. It's not so big that it's a pain to take on short trips, it's really quite manageable. Actually I'll miss being a scooterist as much as having a scooter - I kinda fit the vibe more than the MC crowd, generally speaking. It's all good though! :wink:

If they really are your friends they'll still ride with you.
