Hello fellow members on sgbike forum,
I'm a new member to this forum as well as a new rider on the street(soon). As of now i'm taking my 2B and currently in progress of 70% of the course (now waiting for TP and clearing the remaining prac lessons only). I believe like many of the fellow riders here, we take up 2B is because of a special bike which we fancy, to some it might be super4 or SP etc.
As for myself, i'm very fond and attracted to Vespa, the features and appearance of it. Hence, against all odds, i took up 2B with a motivation of riding it on the road as soon as i pass my TP. However, unlike friends around most people, there're not much riders and definitely no Vespa rider friends. Hence, acquiring the information about the steps to own a vespa is somewhat a tedious process for me to find out. I've been reading through threads and all but still i don't understand certain aspects.
Thus, I intend to set up a official thread JUST for new vespa riders who wants to own a vespa but had no idea on the process and procedures.
This thread, hopefully after some advice from you fellow vespa riders, will serve as a guide to any future Vespa enthusiast.
To begin with, I'd like to ask what are the stuffs we need to pay other than the price of the bike,
i know some are insurance, road tax and etc. I would really appreciate if someone gives me a complete breakdown of what are the different stuffs new riders have to pay in order to ride on the road, with simple explanation would be awesome.
Next, as of myself i'm into Vespa Sprint, thus, do you guys have any idea on where can i buy 2nd hand vespa and REPAINT it at a paint shop? Any nice shops?
In addition, in considerations for those who prefers first hand new auto vespa, where can we find those shops and the different installments, package they offers.
I really thank you if you took the time to read this through and reply to all those doubts i have. One day if i manage to get my vespa, we definitely should hang out and have a dinner or something
P.S Feel free to drop me any PM if you have anything for me, I'd be glad to answer or respond to it.
Lastly, Cheers to all fellow present/past Vespa Riders, and Thank you so much for your help!
