Can of worms!
I went to ScooterBBS.com because I knew that if I wanted to find a place where there are a bunch of scooterists hanging out, that was the place to go. I wanted to see if I might be able to get some folks to send along to me their photos and stories about their Vespas.

It seems like I can't go to that board without it turning into a SE Asia scooter bashing session. Of course, as a purchaser of one of said bikes, it is somewhat annoying. Not that what they say isn't true - it pretty much is. The issue is that I have already heard it - and probably will again next time I post a thread at the board.
Even so, I ran across some pretty nice people. I also will in the next couple of days lay out clearly my thoughts on buying Vespas from Indonesia and Vietnam. I'd do it now, but I'm about to head out the door for a concert. Tomorrow is graduation in the morning, I take my son up to Caesar's Head to celebrate his birthday, and then tomorrow evening is the race in Richmond on TV. Won't be doing much scooter work or scooter posting until Sunday!
