    I don't intend to carry everything I own with me. I know I will need to carry a laptop, books, small lunch (save a penny), and rain gear (this is Florida). For saving my back, I just don't think it will be a good idea to carry a back pack whiles riding. Witch then brings up the point of saving my hip, I am unsure about caring my hand gun.

    Have you every tried the riding jeans and a textile riding jacket? I am looking for something that breathes in hot air. I am not skipping out on a full face helmet.
    The Vespa 300 GTV can do 80 mph, that is fast enough for Florida high ways legal top speed. But I don't like the idea of maxing it out and not have passing power when I am behind a white Buick with Florida tags... I am sure the top speed will drop with two adults on it.

    OK no BS:
    my cousin rode all his life, we raced together in the italian alps when in Med school together, dude could RIDE! last year was wearing back back while riding -it slipped off- into the rear wheel. He's gone.

    When you get sloppy, you'll pay

    HIS SISTER: Vespa on US1 in Florida, semi-truck passing vortex pushed her into opposite lane traffic.Paralyzed for six months, now Gone.

    Ride something with weight and power. Dress for the worst, sweat won't kill you.[​IMG]

    Really sorry to here about your family members VL. If riding is out of the picture, one can always drool over pictures and live vicariously.The cafe you posted is interesting, a bit overdone for my taste. [​IMG] people are adding RD and CR pics... [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    oh god, this isn't fair. The original deal was I would stop street riding and race WERA and the vintage series, it worked. Actually once I began to race I didn't want to street ride anymore, too boring and looking out for others kind of ruins it. School and career ended the time for race commitment, so it all came to a screaming halt. I was always too big for RDs, at 6-0 and 185 or so ( if i eat like a model). My cousin and I raced moto guzzis in italy and switz., and here i got an 850 Lemans, but after a Ducati there was no turning back. Now that I see these new cafes appearing, maybe one for a late-night empty streets blast. I repeat, wife or Ducati??????[​IMG]
