    I really do love the Vespa though… it’s just kinda the “homecoming queen /cheerleader” of the scooter world. Everybody wants to be friends the the cute little Vespa. No love for the nerdy Helix.

    I’d prolly own one if it didn’t screw with my carpel tunnel.

    ‘the nerdy one’

    My wife has a Helix and she’s really cool! By the way, Steve, I have a blog about scooters you’re welcome to visit. It’s this same blog place as yours and the name is Skutergruven.

    I think we’re going mainstream, can’t turn on the TV without some show or commercial with a scooter or 2. New Pepsi “lifestyle” add shows happy seniors on 3 or 4 vintage Vespas cutting it up on the PCH.

    Actually, a Helix doesn’t look like something outa Star Trek…if you look at one from the front, it looks like Dr. Who’s robot dog; K-9.
