    There’s nothing like a Vespa for a 50-year-old guy who still dreams of his cheerleading days.

    I am 50, ride a Vespa, and couldn’t give a rat’s ass what people like you think.

    Brad: “People like you”? What do you mean, people like you? Do you mean people named Charlene or women in general? Riding your scooter I’d tend towards that one.
    Or is it women named Charlene who have more class than you? Probably.

    Breathe, everybody.

    Vespas swarm (pun intended) the Italian streets, and are used by young, randy guys; in fact most riders have a pretty girl clinging to them. That’s the image I have of Vespas. Ahh, I wish I had a Vespa, in fact. Except here in Atlanta, I’d be smashed by a suburban ussault vehicle within a week.

    Boy, that stirred up a wasp’s nest!

    My mother had one when she lived in France. Went nice with my father’s ’52 Anglia. Who’s have guessed my parents had such hip transpo?

    @ Scott B.

    “Vespas swarm (pun intended)…” Where’s the pun? What else does Vespa mean?

  8. Toronto says: April 25, 20108:49 pm

    TomW: It means “wasp” or “hornet.”

    Iftikhar Saroya: How can you not spell Vespa? It’s at the top of the post and in the ad!

    Maybe his was a knockoff. As in “I traded in my Vesph for a Hondo.”

    Toronto: Or maybe a Hurly Dovedsan?
