Default hi! new to forum but not cruiser

hello... i posted most of this in the "lowest milage" thread, then figured i'd start my own...

hi, my name is Ari (pronounced "airy). i'm a female aged 28. i'm married, we have a 2.5 year old daughter. we live in Modesto, CA (central valley).

ABOUT MY CRUISER: i've got an 2005 Inferno Red base model- automatic. had locks done to be electric... installed alarm- that controls "keyless entry" . i got it brand new June 6, 2005. had (i think?) 17 miles on it. now it's just around the corner from 18,000 miles. i keep it clean all the time (although she could use a bath right now) I LOVE IT! it was my dream car! (and still is- although i'd rather have GT, but finances at the time of purchace wouldn't allow for that- oh well not a big deal)

my other passions are The Beatles and SCOOTERS! i like all scooters but favor Vespas. i have 2 "modern" (new, not all "modded" out ) vespas that i just can't get enough of!

anyone else here like scooters?

well thanks for letting me introduce myself in this long post! lookin forward to hangin out around here!

WELCOME to the forum Ari. Lots of friendly, knowledgeable folks here. If you intend to mod your cruiser, don't hesitate to ask about a particular product as oe of us might know a good deal for you somewhere. Most of us have dealt with numerous aftermarket vendors and know who to stay away from and where to get the best price.

I'm sure I've seen another owner from Modesto but I'm not sure if it was this forum or another. There might even be a PT club somewhere around your area.

Enjoy your cruiser.

That's cool, another scooter person on this site. I've been spending most of my time modifying a 1980 Vespa P200, it has a 210 Malosii kit rebored to 230cc, SIP pipe, dropped bars, the whole thing is pretty much tricked out. My wife liked it so much that we ended up getting her a 1999 Italjet Velocifero. I'm probably going to mod the engine on that one too. Was going to get her a new LX 150, but at 5 grand, yikes. And you said you've got two?

I can just hear my PT GT complaining about not getting any attention

Anyways welcome to the forum and are there any scooter rallies over there in Modesto, plenty here in SF? Also What's Cruiserfest, I havn't heard about that one.
