Got my first bike in like 07, it was a yellow pinto that had the PO had bought brand new and got most of the accessories. It had the pinto saddle bags and a front wind screen. Took it around the block from the consignment store that was selling it after the PO's death. Everyone around that town knew the old guy and his pinto as he rode it around often. But my first ride I was smiling ear to ear and almost ate it on a slippery turn, but I was hooked. Best $480 I spent on anything up to that point!
And honestly i dont feel like i had ever seen a moped in person and probably had confused a scoot and a moped before i found my pinto. So i still have no clue what magical force directed me to the land of moped.
