    Clutch in, first gear, keep clutch in, start running, ease the clutch out as scoot starts up pull clutch in Smile

    You can just select first and start pushing however it's harder but it means you don't skid your back wheel Smile

    Turn the ignition on, run along with the scooter in second (with the clutch pulled in) then once you have a good speed drop the clutch so it is in gear. It should start, and be read to pull the clutch in once it has started...

    As above, but you'll need to start from 2nd gear if you're on a lammy or large frame vespa otherwise you'll feel like you're trying to bump start 2 of the buggers. Likewise jump on the seat when you feel it turn over else at least one of you will tarmac surfing
