Moped Mama rides again!

I've been thinking about buying a moped to get back and forth to work to help on gas and mileage on my lease car.  I saw one yesterday in the wantad digest.  I went up and looked at it.  It was pretty old but still runs good.  I paid a couple hundred for it (or more).  I don't think it was worth that much, but they are hard to come by and also will pay for itself in gas soon enough.  I just hope it stays reliable.  This is a picture of one like it.

I hope it works out to be a good one. When it gets warmer that will save a lot on gas. Helen

Good for you!  I've want one, but everyone thinks I'll fall off and really hurt myself.

hugs,  Bethe  Isn't this your weekend off?

I think if you can do it, its a great idea. I know it will save tons of gas money for sure. Ian has an hour drive into work so the best he is going to be able to do is a little car that gets good gas mileage. With the warmer weather coming up it will be perfect. Kelly

I know you will like your moped and you definitely will save on the Gas bill ~ so long as it runs OK and is reliable ~ you take care when out riding it ~ Ally x

Hi LInda, thanks for sending me your journal link... and thanks for visiting me and leaving the comment about Max... so thoughtful of you to do that. I love the idea of a gas saving moped... if I wasnt' worried about my hair getting messed up in the wind (I'm a teacher, I like my hair to be 'done', you know, hair spray and all) I'd consider it. Still, the thought of saving gas money, and riding a motorcycle does have appeal. I'd have to get over my fear of them first, the lack of protection. I have to drive about 9 miles to work. Let us know how it works out for you. bea

It also has the added bonus of being able to squueze past traffic! It'll save you a lot of money but please be careful on it, roads can get slippery when they're wet and watch out for manhole covers, they're slippery when dry!

I have a moped and I love it!  I rarely ride it anymore but I do love it.  It got me many places in live for years and years and now it's just parked in the garage.  Hopefully I will ride it again soon.
