Martha's Motor Scooter in Bedford

Posted by Sharkey

You may remember from a previous Wag from last July that Martha has a motor scooter in East Hampton.  It’s such a cute little thing and so much fun to ride.  Well, you can imagine my surprise when I found that very same scooter in the equipment barn in Bedford.

Oh wow!  It's Martha's Velocifero scooter that's usually in East Hampton.  Franny and I like to spin around the Hamptons on this thing.  It's really cool!

This model is the 50CC version - pretty speedy!

Wow, imagine cruising around here on this scooter!  We love the Kawasaki, but this would be a totally different experience.

This machine was built by the italian motorcycle company Italjet.  Don't the headlamps give it lots of character?

Hmmm, let me see if I can remember how to start this thing.

Silly Sharkey, did you ever think why the scooter is here and not in East Hampton?  And why it's in the repair area of the equipment barn?

I suppose you have a point, Francesca.  It was probably brought here so that expert Dominick can repair it.

Until Dominick fixes it, we can always pretend!  I can almost feel the wind on my face.

  • Hello Ladies,
    That is a really cool scooter, but what you need is a side car. Let G.K. put on his helmet and you both your helmets, and when it is fixed you will "ride baby ride." What fun you will all have just beebopping around the farm. It has been raining here, but supposed to get nice over the weekend. Mom almost lost her flowers by putting them out too soon. Hope it will be good gardening weather this weekend for everyone. Have a good one!!!!
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Good Morning F & S

    What a cool scooter, I agree with Basil you need a side car. I can just picture it now Martha and the two of you with helmets on buzzing through the Hamptons :)

    Yesterday I had a nice surprise mom took the day off and spent the afternoon working in the garden. It was a beautiful day so I just watched from my lounge chair. Our yard is looking so pretty mom does a great job.

    Well the rain is on its way for the weekend so I'm sure we'll be spending time in the kitchen. I'm hoping mom will bake me some dog treats, I really like the peanut butter treats - YUMMY.

    Enjoy your weekend everyone!!

  • What silly little Frenchies on a scooter! yes, you must wear a helmet to protect those cute heads of yours...love the scooter, love the color...this is my speed of bike!
    Wow that barn is filled with lots of machinery...very nice!
    Just noticed it's Friday the 13th...be safe!
    Everyone have a great weekend.

  • KOOL BIKE!!!! That would be so refreshing to ride on that and have the wind blow through your fur. Especially for the longer coated dogs. What do you think guys? Leather jackets, leather booties, I can picture it now. Well, back to reality. Today is get rid of weeds day. Naturally, I will just lay there and watch everyone work. Being a dog can be so rewarding at times. Have a great weekend everyone.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Scooters are great for “puttering” around town. But if you really want to “ride” you need something larger. A motorcycle is what my Daddy had at one time. He said it would “fly” but I would prefer to stay on the ground. Two wheels are hard enough to handle. Daddy sold it when drivers of cars ran him off of the road many times. People don’t seem to care about anyone but themselves any more. Drivers hit bicycles about one time a month around here. Have a good and safe weekend all. Don’t let Friday the 13th get to you.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • hi girls rocky here my dad loves bikes too. he wants a sidecar for my brother bo-winkle not me I don't even like cars!But bo doesn't need to worry for a while it's always broke.have a great weekend Rocky

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., WOW! The weather there at the farm sure looks terrific and I would love to be out there in the sun! Supposed to be sunny here today, but it isn't quite yet. That motor scooter sure looks like fun to ride on with you two except there isn't much room to get 3 of us on it or even just you two. Like Basil said, I think you need a side car to ride on it. How nice that Dominick can fix the scooter if there is something wrong with it. You have great people there at the farm who do so many great things! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and hope to see G.K. on your blog next week-miss him!!! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • "Get your motor running
    Head out on the highway
    Looking for adventure
    In whatever comes our way...Born to be wild!"

    Basil hit it right on the head a sidecar for the three of you is needed along with cutie little leather biker jackets and hats. Maddox you hit it on the head too! We Waggers certainly can come up with fun ideas around here. Everyone have a great weekend! :smile:

  • Hey Girls,
    Looking good and sporty. It would be great to have a ride around the farm, in the meantime, keep pretending to feel the breeze through your ears. I'm going to lay on the deck and watch the new goslings swim around with their folks.
    Have a great weekend everybody.

  • Ohh I just LOVES going for bye bye rides! Gone on a scotter would be Pawsome!

    woo woos, Tessa
