Boy, leave a few weeks for Europe and look what happens; I wondered why the 'other' section at BUSA was slowing down!

Thanks again to Greengoose for giving this a go. May I never have to deal with the wacky Yahoo formatting again

Welcome over Ti! I was wondering where you'd gone since I didn't see you on either BUSA and you didn't move over here. Please fill us in on the details of your journey! :hello2:

3 weeks, mostly in Switzerland, then Germany and the UK. I travel quite a bit for work and find myself in Zurich 3 or 4 times a year. And yes, there are a lot of scooters there. Mainly Piaggio and Vespa stuff, especially in Switzerland, but you do see the occasional Burgman or Majesty 250. Piaggio really does own the continental market. The next most common thing there are dual-sport motorcycles.

Another funny thing. You are all by now familiar with the blanket/skirt thing that attaches from the scooter to cover the riders legs during the winter. Saw lots of those; it's what you do with it when you park that's funny. Some leave them attached, some store them in a bag, and some people 'wear them off', meaning they keep it on and wear as they walk around town like a skirt. Was not expecting that.

Did lots of driving while there. Alps have sublime roads that would make for good riding. Which is why they are congested with sportbikes from Italy in the summer. But the roads in northern England, around the Lake or Hill districts, are just as fun. Pavement is not as smooth, but they make up for it in dips and turns. It takes a bit to get used to driving on the wrong side of the road though.

Maybe I'll check in the Majesty as baggage next time...

I don't know that I've seen one or a link to one. I could see them being worn as skirts in Scotland, though. :lol: :p

There might be a hefty weight overage if you're not a Platinum frequent flyer!"

Sounds like you had a great trip. Post some pictures in the Gallery.

I just found out about this forum today. I've had my Majesty for four months and love it! It's still a novelty here in Seattle: I overhear chatter about it and get compliments from people ranging from toddlers to soccer moms to fellow scooterists.
