Hoping for a new ride…

So as some of you may already know my bike has been in the shop for more months in 2011 than I have ridden it. The problem is that after taking it into a shop for a standard maint and oil change, the bike started stalling when cold. The bike is still in the shop while the engineer try to figure it out. At this point, I don’t know if I will ever get it back in working condition. I am resolved that it’s time for a new ride and have started looking at some new bikes and scooters.

I am impressed with the bergman 650 exec, but the price is a bit much. I am also thinking of waiting on the new BMW scooters. I am not sure I will ever want to purchase another Piaggio/Vespa or Aprilla scooter or motorcycle again because of the length of time this has taken. I sort of feel that if this was a car, it would have been scrapped and replaced with a brand new one, but motorcycles and scooters don’t seem to carry the same level of customer service as cars.
