It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Moped Lar (OFMC) /

Here are a couple of pics of my new Moped Lair in Powhatan, Virginia. We absolutely love it here. We’re less than 30 minutes from downtown Richmond. Pictured are Kim’s and my Vespas. I still have to bring down my Snark, Kim’s Maxi and my Garelli GS LTD.

Thanks, still have to hang up my lighted Cimatti sign and it should be good to go.

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Nice set up Lar, Go Vespa!

That garage floor hasn't seen one leaky old moped!

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Nice, Powhatan's cool.

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Love Virginia!

Good luck to you!

Thanks guys! The house is brand spanking new, so no, the garage floor hasn’t seen any oil or gas leaks on it. I’m sure that will change once the peds get here....lol.

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Happy for ya,Larry! Hope everything works out well for you and yours,now together.

Is it a good area for mopeding?

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Congrats on the move. Don't forget to update your profile, it's still says NJ.

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Nice! Feel free to hit me up if you are ever coming up 81 and want to take a break for a little ride in Harrisonburg.

Now you have access to the freshest and cheapest cigarettes in the nation!

Don, it’s a great area for mopeding. It’ still very rural out here and most importantly, flat! Not gonna miss all the hills near my house in NJ.

That’s not just a garage, it’s a showroom.

I would never even need the rest of the house.

I kinda dream about building a tiny house with a garage atrium. So, part of the living space would be decorated with mopeds, motorcycles, a small airplane.

Congrats.

Here’s a couple of pics of my man cave above the garage. The garage and man cave were the only rooms I had input on, and that was fine with me.

Looks great!

All the best to you & Kim.

Miss those legendary Memorial day rides of past years!!

Now maybe some of those north Jersey mopeds will come my way....

Thanks Larry! Here’s a pic from our 2011 Ride. Those were some real fun times.

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Congratulations, Lar! Enjoy your new digs. Is New House Smell better than New Car Smell? Have a blast exploring!

Now it’s officially done!

Great garage art, and beautiful floors in garage. I’d prolly just sleep in there.

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Amazing! Super jelly...in the best possible way! Congrats!

Sounds wonderful! I like the hills,too, but it's a challenge for mopeding when pretty steep.

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Personal advice, never go to Chesterfield, ever. It sucks.

Nice place! I remember the first time I dropped a wrench and put a chip in the floor trying to be careful not to mess up the floor!

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

It's still a single time zone trip from MI. Buy up some more peds, please. I really enjoyed the trip, meeting you and loading up seven cool peds way back when...

Re: It’s official, I’m a Virginian!

Those were some great times back then. I had more bikes than I knew what to do with.

I don’t think I’ll be scooping up peds anymore here in VA. From the look of FB and CL, there’s really nothing out here to get except expensive or trashed peds. Secondly, I no longer have room to store them. I’ve got a room just for my bikes, but it’s at full capacity with my two Vespas, two Genuine Buddies and three mopeds. I’m tapped out.

I guess that the collecting chapter of my life has ended and now I can enjoy just riding and looking at what I still have.

They can suck up alot time, had two gas leakers today, luckily outside and not while out riding. Having a shed has been great for me to do dirty work in and for parking suspect mopeds.
