Nat- what year is that Piaggio?
I've been looking at a couple of them locally but all the ones I've seen here are 125 4 strokes. Not that its the end of the world, but I'd rather have an oil burner.

My Piaggio is a 2006.

Something happened not long after that, and the two strokes vanished from the market.

Something to do with regulations in California?

The entire North American market is often victim to Ca emissions standards.

Oh...you must be referring to "The Peoples Republic of Kalifornia".

Ya...the whiny, Liberal, State government is a PITA for everyone. Small wonder they are broke, on fire and out of water.

A Margaret Thatcher quote seems appropriate here...

"The problem with Socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people's money."

A two stroke at sea level is even more fun.

I took my Honda CRX to the coast and wow, what a difference.

My new parts scooter... Mid to late 90's ch80 for $80 on CL. I gave him $60.
LOTS of GOOD parts including a nearly new front tire and the rear side panels I was needing for the black beater scooter!

Yeah, Nat- here at sea level we do have some nice dense air!
