Well, I finally got my 170i this afternoon. Rain and sleet and 36 degrees all the way there and back. Got it home and into the garage, spent about an hour wiping it down with my chamois cloth. I picked up a cover, a Cuppini windscreen and a rear rack for it while at the dealership. I also grabbed a ...

Congrats on the 170i! I pick up my Pamplona 170i next Tuesday from the dealer in Clinton Township, MI. Looking forward to plugging in the heated jacket and gloves and enjoying some cold weather riding!

Prima Scooter Kilt

I just saw this:

Well, I pulled the trigger last Thursday and ordered a 170i Pamplona. I have to wait until the first week of November to get it, and had to pay upfront. After finally going to a Genuine dealer and seeing how large the Buddy frame and bodywork really is, I decided that the largest engine was my best ...

Thank you to everyone that responded. I really do appreciate your input. A few of you are my size, and some of you are in Michigan! Bonus! I have definitely ruled out a 50cc scooter, thanks to your feedback. My closest recommended dealer is Cafe Racer in Ann Arbor. Their website shows that they have...

The state of Michigan does not require insurance below 50cc. As I stated in the original post, I'm one-up for the commute, never two up. I would have occasional 2-up for very short rides of less than three miles, and only once or twice a week. The nearest Genuine dealer is over an hour from home, so...

15 mile commute

Hi Everyone! I'm about to pull the trigger and make the transition from a motorcycle to a scooter. I've decided that it's going to be a Genuine, but I'm torn on which model. My primary goal is to one-up commute 15 miles each way to work, on paved back roads. I'm in Michigan. I will only have a passe...
