I had a dude almost get his ass kicked for calling me a poser and a fraud for riding a Stella in DT Seattle once. He was being really threatening, like I screwed his daughter or something.
"You shit on the whole Vespa community for riding that pos!!!!!"
His girlfriend musta really liked Vespas......grrrr I'm a big strong man and I'm more important than you grrrr.
The guy was Soo upset he wouldn't even talk with me about the bike, it was a 2005 Stella frame I got for free with all the bits from an wrecked 80's px200egs from bentbike on it. Miss that bike, twas the new hotness.
Been looking into getting a Bajaj for a cheap scooter reentry point. Did Bajaj import 2t bikes here? All of em I've seen are 4t....regardless I have a rusty pile of a p150 engine/swingyunit out in the shed somwhere I could rebuild n swap in methinks.
