I sat on the Boulevard M50 (and the S40, S50) and it’s a very nice bike. I love the styling of that one. I have also been to the Vespa dealership in Seattle and they are nice people. I was talking to them about a 150 but after looking around and doing some research I decided to go for 250cc or larger, so I could get the bigger wheels (better for potholes). Gas mileage is still reasonable at that level. But I have been increasingly thinking of just getting a motorcycle. If I start with the 250cc size, I should be OK and I can ride it for a couple of years. I am not a speed demon anyway. I just want a bike for basic transporation. Congratulations on your Boulevard by the way–that’s a nice bike. Thanks for the advice.
