Well my daily rider is a '96 Rat Black Vespa of Death.
I bought the Vespa scoot cheap as it had been rear ended, but it only had 1500km on it. I panel beated it back into shape, slapped on some flat black paint, white walls and painted the wheels red.
I was in the garage mucking around one day when I decided to grab the pillion pegs off my '04 R1 (It got a single seat cowl a while ago, so no need for them) and bolt them to the leg shield of the Vespa, giving me that "Chopper" look with a feet forward riding position.
It tends to bring smiles to anyone's face who see's me riding it around.
Otherwise if I need to drive I borrow my housemates '88 VL Holden Commodore while my Hillman Super Minx is off the road.
One thing about every one of the vehicles at my place (3 bikes, 1 scooter, 2 cars and a 4WD) is that they are all manual. We both hate auto's and like to to the gear changing ourselves.
Here's a pic of the Vespa:
And this is afterwards with the front guard removed and the R1 pillion pegs added:

I drive a one man power Bicycle. No speeding tickets to date (probably 'cause my ride to work is all up hill on a beat up mountain bike).
Almost killed my self riding down hill,
I live on an incline that leade to a main road I was riding down hill during rush hour when my brakes let out. I was in drivers-ed at the time and we learned the IPDE system. IPDE is an acronym for
I followed the IPDE system. First I identifed, my rear brakes out riding down hill at approximately 20mph, when three county cement mixers where leaving for a refill heading east, while I was heading south. I predicted I'm gonna die.
I decided within 30 feet of the end of my street, and 75 from a busy rush hour main road with three dump trucks, I decided to ditch. I pulled up against a curb and executed. I ditched right in to a set of bushes. but not just any bushes. The lady who owned them spent more time pruning them then the land scaping company she hired did. I left an approximate 3.5 ft hole from where my torso and front wheel ripped open the shrubs. Lucky, oh yeah. I saw her pull out and leave while I was at the top of the street. I grabbed my bike and split.
6 months Till my licsence!!

Just sold my 67 Cuda fastback with a 340, that's why I'm here now. Looking to build a bucket most likely. My daily driver is an 02 WRX wagon.
Also have a slightly neglected 2003 Suzuki Intruder.

|Howdy||Hey nice moped. My summer ride is mainly,(if it's not snowing or raining or 60 mph winds), My 85' honda magna V four 700cc. It's supose to do 140mph but with me on it I've only gotten up to 130 either i'm too fat or our roads are too short. Otherwise I drive my 88' chevy 1/2 ton step side it's white anddirty most of the time but it's got 3.73 gears with posi a 700r4 tranny with a shift kit and a slightly modified 4.3L v-6 soon to be upgraded to a newer hotter 4.3L. If I have to haul something I take my dad's 77ford hd 1 ton flatbed it has a 351m engine a big friggen 4 speed with granny low and 4.56 gears with detroit lockers. I'm also canabalizing most of my 12 or so Bugs to finish my 63' Baha Beatle. I've got a porche 4 cylinder for it should be finished next summer it's gonna be H-O-T hot. <img src="graemlins/evil.gif" border="0" alt="[evil]" /> anywat my chev's my commuter to college every week I put about700 miles on it a week. Oh and I just got a whole new front clip for it and my friend said he'd shoot some paint on it when I finish the sheet metal so it's gonna look pretty sweet when I finish that. Don't knock your gopedmobile at least you get to ride more than 3 months a year.|

|Mr.56Chevy||When I can't drive my truck I am driving a 1996 dark blue Buick Roadmaster. This thing is awesome, it has a 350 CID, although it has 150k miles. It is a great car for a teenager, can hold 8 people comfortablly and legally. The seats are also the comfiest seats I have ever sat in. It is great for road trips, we got to Minnesota every year and all over Cali during the year. Have only replaced brake pads, water pump and struts for rear glass.|
