While we're on the subject of scooters.

I found a cool scooter site. Scooterlounge. It has both a Vespa and Lambretta side. I've always had a bit of an affinity for scooters for some reason. Let me qualify that by saying Italian scooters. I don't want a Honda Spree or a Suzuki Burgerman. Those are practical, reliable, and totally soul-less. Decidedly un-Italian. I suggested to one of my friends a few years ago we get some cool vintage Vespas and he asked "Should I just kick your ass right now?". I don't really have the time to get into the motorcycle vs. scooter debate so suffice to say I own three motorcycles and adding a Vespa or Lammy to the stable would be pretty cool. I suppose you could call me a Mod and a Rocker. I like Gene Vincent and have owned a 650 BSA and I love Paul Weller and The Jam but have never owned a Scooter. Hell, I've seen the bloody Who play Quadrophenia live for fucks sake!

Don't worry I found one on Craigslist, email sent.

Surley, I may have a line on a Vespa, circa 71-72? One of the Docs said she may be willing to part with it. I'll let you know.
