Betta Geta Vespa

My FIL sent hubby and I a postcard one time with that "Betta Getta Vespa" tagline on it. Yesterday I was speaking to a coworker who just ordered a brand new scooter for $1200. It's get's 90 miles to the GALLON she says.

Right now hubby and I can carpool as we both work downtown. Next spring my company is moving and carpooling will no longer be possible. My company currently pays for my parking at work. When hubby goes back to driving himself he will either have to pay $70 per month for parking or find an alternative. Enter the scooter (or motorcycle - there is a debate). Better gass mileage + better parking options (read free) = not as much of a reduction in our take home pay.

There is still the debate of motorcycle over scooter. I don't think I care too much what one we get. I would prefer a scooter first so when we get hubby his motorcycle the scooter will be mine to use.

Anyone want to weigh in on the debate?

Ry's dad just paid cash and got a used scooter to take to work and small errands. It's really great, he saves a ton on gas now.

It doesn't look as cool as a motorcycle, but I think it's a better value.

My DH talks about getting a scooter, but frankly, anywhere he could ride it, he could take his bike (and get some exercise too). He either needs to go a long way or just a few blocks.
