    Vespa riders are not proper motorcyclists

    I feed my V-Max on a diet of crushed Vespas when i can't afford to buy real food for it.

    I know right! Ditto. But I even do it when I'm walking down the street!

    He claims to be on a Vespa 200, of course it has 'fizzled out' I'm surprised it got to the bottom of the street. :laugh:

  8. You've got the wrong event: he was riding a troll. Quite proficiently, at first.

    I learned to ride a bicycle before I learned to drive . My initial driving instructor was astounded I did blind spot checks when moving off for the first time .

    Why do I do them ? because it’s what I was taught to do on cycling proficiency as a kid . I still do it now , some people call it muscle memory , it’s not it’s a neuro logical thing. I do it when walking .

    So you say “ never” I say you are utter wrong and I sense trolling afoot .

    Vespa 200 = a 125 with 200 barrel and piston undeclared to the DVLA.

    I have a proper motorcycle and 1962 Vespa, I commute on the motorbike because they are so wanky only a loser would want to steal it and be seen on one. The Vespa is for getting dressed up and good times. I use both in ASL's with never an issue from cyclists, but mostly (90%+ of the time) I stop further forward......because of cars in them. I don't make a big deal of things unless I am on my cycle, then I like to get to ride to the front, point at the (car covered) box, paddle backwards to the bumper and take my time at green.:smile:
