Anyone want a gas-saving Commuter Vehicle? I'm selling my beloved 125cc Scooter..

Anyone in San Diego want a good condition, Sea-foam Green 2010 Genuine Buddy (125cc) scooter maintained by the authorized mechanic for $1500?

Great deal - about 1/3 off Kelly blue book for "sell by owner" because of a few dings.

She gets 80-85 MPG and can get up to 60 MPH (50 MPH on steep hills with a 200lb rider), and wieghs only 225 lbs (just like me!).

She has been used regularly as a work commuter vehicle (18 miles on city streets round trip) in all but downpours and heavy (20 MPH+) winds and has just over 8K miles on it. She's a friendly color, easy to see at night, and just the right color to stand out clearly against anything - glare, pavement, fog, dusk.

She's is equipped with a full windshield, front book-rack, "chrome" railing kit, new rear tire, back rack with 3 gallon Givi box (key is unfortunatly at the bottom of San Diego Bay with my old wallet and keychain, so you'll have to drill out the lock and replace it).

Not Freeway Legal because she only gets up to 60MPH, but can handle traffic anywhere else easily.

Cash Only...I'll even toss in the medium sized helmet.
My right leg just can't handle the stopping and holding her up on hills anymore.

2. I hear you - it's a great stress relever, and good for my back...

If it weren't for my right leg going and increasing incidence of adrenaline rush while almost dropping the bike on "A" street near Symphony Hall, or at the left turn I need to make to get to my street off a major road, I'd keep it.

There's some serious physical therapy in my near future, and I doubt I'm going to be scooting for a while.
I will need to find some other sort of outlet to decompress on my way home.

3. Well, just sold her to a nice young professional couple who needed an "local errand vehicle".

They wonder, just as I do, why there aren't more people who want to use scooters for quick trip transportation than using a big old gas-hogging SUV.
