At the age of 64 next birthday and still having to work i got fed up to the back teeth with the unreliable train service not to mention the cost of the season ticket, so I took my test and got a 2nd hand (2006) Peugeot Elyseo from an even older rider. He decided to hang up his leathers at the age of 84. I was in truth apprehensive riding daily into London as I usually drive a Land Rover Disco and here I am now on a little 125cc scooter! but hey it's great my own space and it feels bigger...

Bought a very low mileage 2004 example. Have been used to scoots like the Vespa ET4 and Honda C90 ( Classic!)as well as much larger bikes.

After hiring a scooter on holiday, I decided to buy one, for some fun, and as a cheap commuting alternative to the car in summer. I bought the Peugeot Elyseo 125P at two years old and with 6000kms. on the clock; I have covered 9000kms. in the last 2 and a half years, and still love riding it.
It handles well, will do 70 flat out, and returns nearly 100MPG. There is enough room for a full-face helmet under the saddle, and a hook under the handlebars for a small carrier bag.
