Chris G trying to get out of Scooter's bear hug. And yes, that IS an auxilary fuel tank on the back of Chris' LX190. (Yup, an LX190!)
Unknown to most of you, Vespa Kansas City has a sister store in Des Moines, IA. They recieved a shout out on Chris G's Cannoball blog. Chris, for those not in the know, traveled from OR to NY with 32 other scooter riders.
Des Moines very own Scooter (that's his name) had come to the rescue when Chris' variator needed changing, thus the name drop in Chris' blog. If you happen to be in the Des Moines area, check out Scooter and his crew at Vespa Des Moines (515.964.0611). They'll set you straight.
