I got 3 days to kill off of work for covid vaccination shit so fuck it.. decided it might be a good time to crack open pandora's box on MA.
How do you go about determining what moped means the most to you?
I'm not talkin' like.. " Oh my derbi is 1400 bucks for sure!!! ". I mean like.. which moped could you never live without and how did you get there?
Granted, I feel like there's a couple classic themes involved here. How rare the moped is.. How long you've had the moped.. How many times the moped has burned you ( shoutout motobecane ).. How fast it is.. How much moolah you've put into it.. Blah blah blah, you get the idea.
Just curious how you guys go about this. Like when you know it's time to slim the fleet down, where do you start?
When I first got into mopeds, it was a big outlet for my bipolar mania. All the little parts.. seein how fast I could go.. how janky it could get.. AWWW the good times!! ? But now at age 28, it has taken more a shift into " what mopeds do I truly enjoy " Like who cares about how precise my ZA50 shimming is.. What bike am I staring at with lust when moped night rolls around? Like yeah the sicko mode clutch pulley peugeot is tight but I have wayyyy more fun doin' 43 mph on my stock variator build.
I know this is kinda a clunky topic but fuck it. I wanna hear from y'all. Tell me about your favorite mopeds you own and how / why they mean so much to you.
Yay, I'm excited.
