I’m now a proud owner of a black Vespa LX 50, four strokes. Funny part: minutes after buying it, a guy (looked like one of the bike shop customers) turns to me and says “That’s a great machine, congratulations!”. Well, I have no idea if it is, and it sure looks good to me, but I can’t stop feeling I’ve entered a very exclusive club, or better, two exclusive clubs: motorbike owners and Vespa owners. And I just want it to commute, avoiding (most of) the traffic and not pay parking.
Next step: learn how to drive it.
