Keeping your love tank full

Bicycle or Vespa,

what would your first choice be? Unless you’re going to sit your girlfriend on the handlebars of your bicycle, I’d definitely go with the Vespa option.

OK, I get that sight seeing through older cities in Europe are much more practical with a bike and if that’s your choosing fine, but don’t go to Rome and not hire a Vespa! Where else can you ensure that she’s holding onto to you tight? You’re in control! She relaxes her “hooks” (that’s a term of endearing by the way), you give a sudden twist of the wrist, a jolt of energy into the motor and she’s right back where she belongs.

Do you really want to roam the country side, especially the hills on a pedal bike? Don’t forget you should be carrying a picnic basket or something in your back pack to stop and enjoy the view. Not very romantic if you’re sweating all over the place and have to go looking for the shower that’s just not around the next corner.

See, this is where most guys start to make the biggest mistakes. You need to have consideration for your partner and ensure that what’s cool for you is cool for her. Give her the Vespa ride first and I’ll bet you she’ll be more than willing to go explore on pedal power later. If you’re a sporty type and you really want the exercise, go do it whilst she’s shopping. Oh yeah, give her the credit card and it’s even more romantic ;-)! I just hope you can afford it..

And if you do have to use the bicycle, definitely take a side tour and put her on the handlebars! Better yet, don’t make a race of it and just take a lazy stroll. You’ll be the better for it in the end.

Anybody got a good recommendation for a Vespa rental in Rome? I’m always looking for a surprise trip highlight..
