“RoamRides of Miami- unforgettable Vespa rental fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2011

Renting a Vespa 150 from RoamRides for the Miami vacation last week absolutely *made* the trip. Couldn't have been easier, hassle free, cheaper or more fun. Huge thanks to Kit (owner) for personal delivery & even publicist pal Theresa (sp?) for stepping in to help with pick up. Obviously, they have sharp business sense and being good people, know how to treat customers right.

Being from NYC where it's impossible to enjoy such luxuries without added headache, I appreciate the personal touch, ease of renting these nice new, well maintained bikes. All you need do is call the ph# and set up a time and place to meet. My cost was $64 and change (incl tax) for a half day, 2 Helmets included, no worries about filling up the gas at all, they come fuelled up and you can return it low, pretty impossible though since these are gas sippers.

It was easy to navigate downtown/South Beach grid streets. Roads are smooth and cars are used to people on scooters & bikes so they show respect on the road. Parking is slightly tricky, keeps a handful of quarters on you for meters, but when stuck just find a public parking lot to save the headache/worry.

Scooter size wise, next time I'll try the slight lighter Vespa 50 instead, since physically i'm on the petite side. Curious how it handles differently, if at all. Had no problems with the 150 mind you, acceleration, braking, turns all smooth.

Can't wait to get back to mellow Miami, it's currently my fav East Coast beach retreat! Good Times...
