I think it is an Italian made scooter.Piaggio x9 I think (would make since from the signature). It is nice looking and worthy of showing pride in. Looks like it is well made and quite comfortable. Setting his goals on a new Goldwing means he has has good taste so I am sure he would not settle for less than comfort.
Hey, I wouldn't mind have that scooter for local running around on. It would be a big upgrade from my moped scooter. Thing is, I'd finally have to put tags and insurance on it which I don't have to do with the moped.
