Meet Darth Lola:
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.
