i met her in a club down in old soho

Meet Darth Lola:

vroooom vroooooom

She’s a 2009 250 GTS Super, and she’s *amazing*:

Darth Lola is my dream scooter. I was always heading towards the Vespa 250; I just didn’t expect to upgrade so soon. Vespa Vancouver had exactly the model I wanted in stock, for $1200 off and a lot of extras (gloves, helmet, extended warranty, watch, meat):

Riding Lola is like riding butter. Smooth, expensive, delicious butter made by fancy Italian cows. I’ve always thought that buying Vespa meant paying extra for the brand name, but this machine is *incredible*. I can’t even really describe it; she’s such a glorious ride. I stand by what I said with regards to 50cc scooters – don’t get a Vespa, you can do better for half the price – but as Lola is my Forever Scooter (there is nowhere for me to upgrade to that I’m willing to consider), she’s worth the insane price tag.

I’m still a little shell-shocked about it all.

  1. She is beautiful! I’ve always been intrigued by your scooters, but this is the first time I’ve started drooling with jealousy! I want your scooter. WAAAANT! I hope you have LOTS of fun with her. Vroom!

  2. I want! Oh Kimli that is a seriously gorgeous machine! I thought I was jealous of Oscar, but that machine right there? I’m turning green.

  3. I gotta say I think the whole mod/tattoo/scooter/k-rad thing is pretty lame, but that scooter is fucking sweet. Way to go, money well spent!

    rake is right – it’s plain and simple. When does a scooter become a motorcycle?

  4. I think you need to post about how much better the Vespa is, and why. For those of us who have no fucking idea what it all means.

    Hey, you can use the dishcloths I made you to wash your new love with!
