Some of the best riding of the year is now! The weather is cooler and wearing all your gear keeps you warm, cozy and safe. A full face helmet definitely keeps you warm in the cool fall air. We are fully stocked with Corazzo Jackets, warm gloves and of course, full face helmets. Watch out for those slippery leaves on the road!
Cooler air is more dense, so it requires you to warm up your scooter a bit longer than in the summer. You should always let your scoot warm up a good 3-5 minutes the first time you ride the scooter in the morning. If you've let the scooter warm up properly, but still feel your scoot is not running quite right, please give us a call or come on down to the shop. A minor carburetor adjustment for the cooler weather may be all you need!

Jay Leno is our BUDDY!
Viva La Vita Baby!! The Hammerhead La Vita.
Here are some pics of the Hammerhead La Vita, based on the iconic Italian VBB! Initial, brief ride impressions are positive.
The single seat/buddy seat combo gives the La Vita a similar seating position to the original VBB, with a higher seat, bent knees and low handlebar height. Smooth acceleration from the electronic fuel injection, good stopping power from the dual disc brakes, familiar, modern GY6 4 stroke engine sound. You look cool in the reflection of the storefront window as you pull up to park.
Stay tuned for a full review once we put a few more miles on it.
