5. Can I ride with a passenger?
Riding tandem on our Vespa scooters is recommended only for experienced riders who are fully confident in their abilities. It is crucial to understand that by choosing to ride tandem, the responsibility for the safety of both the rider and the passenger rests solely with the rider. VespaYEG accepts no liability for any injuries sustained by a passenger, regardless of their age. We strongly advise riders to assess their skills and capabilities before opting for tandem riding. Your safety is paramount to us, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation in adhering to this rule.

Your safety is our priority. If we determine that weather conditions are unsafe for riding, we will offer rescheduling or refunds. We will notify you promptly in such situations.

VespaYEG only recommends riding tandem for experienced riders and accepts no liability for the injury of a passenger, regardless of age. Moreover, passengers are also required to wear a helmet. We provide extra helmets for passengers for $8.60, which fit most sizes, but in the event that our helmets do not fit a passenger properly, we kindly request that you provide your own helmet. Ensuring a proper fit is essential to maximize safety and protect against potential risks. Thank you for your cooperation in prioritizing safety during your Vespa adventure with us.

Yes, you are welcome to bring your own helmet, as long as it meets safety standards and regulations. Sports helmets (hockey, football, baseball, cycling, etc.) will not be accepted
