    Insurance depends on your age and license status. if you are gonna be riding it on a provisional and are only 16-17 you're looking at £1000 insurance for the year.


    If ya got a full license then insurance will be cheap as chips.

    lol, i thought it said 'Any Pet Riders in here' at first glance

    would be wicked to have one for the summer for sure
    couple of my mates are right into all that mod stuff and got Lambretta's, cost wise they are bloody cheap all round mate, insurance, repairs (can do most yourself) tax, fuel.

    Tony, surely it cant be £1000 to insure a skooter man, even if you are only 17???

    lol, does my head in round here, you can tell when kids have finished their GCSE's cos they all get bought these hairdryers on whells by mummy and daddy and ride like tits all over the road.

    see em all hanging outside the shop- 'mine does 38mph downhill with a backwind'


    well done mate!

    My friends got a ped and i reckon the best thing about them is that you can fill the tank for £6 and i will do about 150 odd miles, maybe more depending on how you drive.

    me and fran are the original badass two wheeled bandits

    you should get one man, costs me $4 to fill the tank, registration and insurance cost me less than a quarter of what i pay for my car. and the world is your free parking bay.

    do iiit!!
