Scooters were originally conceived as urban transportation and to this day, most people think of scooters as city bikes. Thing is though, when a scooter is what you’ve got, a scooter is what you’ll use no matter how far you intend to go. Surprisingly enough, people choose scooters for long-distance adventures all the time.
Right now, an intrepid group of eight Vespa LX-150 riders are making their way from Los Angeles to Key West over the course of three weeks. They’ve dubbed their trip “4K the Hard Way” and you can follow their adventure online. Sponsored by Vespa of Sherman Oaks, the 4,000 mile trip started about a week ago and is going on right now. Follow along on their Facebook page.
