Unlike their car-bound and frequently pantless counterparts, open-air-transportation enthusiasts require proper accessorizing to protect themselves from both the elements and red Koopa shells. Ready yourself for the open road with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of services and merchandise at Vespa Lexington.
One of the largest Vespa dealers in the Great Lakes region, Vespa Lexington has been touting two-wheeled transport of the Vespa, Piaggio, and SYM varieties since 2008. The shop's mechanics spruce up scooters for spring rides with a selection from Vespa Lexington’s menu of services, including repairs, tune-ups, oil changes, and installing a dreamy Italian in the driver's seat ($50+).
Otherwise, upgrade your own attire with a Vespa Lexington T-shirt ($15) or Attus Apparel polo ($5–$15). The Fulmer Ranger half helmet allows riders to cool their faces in a summertime breeze ($51.95) as Corazzo Carbone high-performance riding gloves decorate their digits with abrasion-resistant Keprotec, a fabric specially designed to keep hands safe during high-speed high-fives with oncoming motorists ($45). The Prima scooter cover ($49.99) cloaks a vehicle from dirt and dust during inclement weather or the annual pigeon convention while the battery tender ($39.99) keeps the battery charged and ready for the next jaunt through town. If your Vespa is already fully tricked out, keep a three-pack of Field Notes notebooks at the ready for jotting down directions, shopping lists, or any dreams you have while power-napping at red lights ($15).
- I've visited the shop several times with my Lexington relatives and am very impressed by the operation, ambiance, selection and committment [sic] to service. Most of all, they are great folks! If I get another scoot, they'll be the first place I go. – Google Mapper, 5/14/10
