It's not what you ride.  It's that you ride.
It's not what you ride, its that you ride.

No two Vespas are alike i.e. no 2 scooters are alike, not even the brand new ones.

Your problem is just the tip of the iceberg.

Your first problem is owning one first, the bigger problem is collecting. It's very addictive.
And just like you said you married, you and your wife agreed to the Vespa, then you have to buy her one too.

as Manu Sandejas famous words "sira ang ulo ang nag-mo-motor ng walang helmet"

Apir!

Thanks sa mga advice mga sirs! Sobra naapreciate ko at mas madami na kong info ngayon to consider things.. I think I'l just go for the original vespa.. Sana lang meron akong mahanap na PX in good condition pa at a considerable price.. Baka meron po kayong marerecommend.. Salamat po ult.. Dont worry magkikita kita din tayo sa finals mga sirs!!! :)

Whatever you get I'm sure you'll be happy.

Congrats Medic! IMHO It's not the ride, it's the back rider :-)

greetings!

i'd rather keep things in all of it's original state. some people do this on a guitar, fooling themselves that it is a 'Gibson' guitar but, he and only he knows that it's not.

if you have a Vespa, then it is a Vespa. if you have a Stella, then it's a Stella, and be proud of it. if i have the money to get one, i will...


my two centavos worth.. hihihi.. Godspeed!

If i may.. my 5 pesos. Discrimination will always be there. It may not be displayed openly, but it can exist, and thrive in ones self. Nobody wants to be belittled, disrespected, or thought any less than the next Joe. And it is this thought, and principle that can drive one to make a decision, or a choice between Product A or B. Discrimination is born out of preference, it is born out of the desire to be associated with the best, (as decided by society) i.e "mas type ko vespa kasi vespa eh..deyn na ang iba" or "why rebadge? kung stella/lml/ then stick with  it (the very act of not rebadging can  itself be an act of pride and of bias towards stella/lml and can be construed as discriminatory, the inverse holds true) to "sorry i cant hire you coz you are over 35yo and male..were looking for  an accountant between 22yo to 34yo female eh " who's to say and judge a 40yo male accountant cant do the job? In the U.S its illegal to to put restrictions on age  and gender for jobs (not all of course, like pro wrestling, the olympics, etc)

       Lets face it.. we have a vespa coz its a vespa and because of anything and everything that goes with it. Pride of ownership? Syempre. How many times in stop lights have we said in our minds as we see an underbone pull up next to us "duy ng ride mo men, il never be caught dead riding one" (you don't even have to say it in your mind..you can just think it..). I mean a guy in a ducatti can think the same thing of you and your Vespa and a guy in a Harley can think that of of the guy riding the Ducatti, and a guy in a mio can say "bagal nyong lahat! mio parin!".. Preference. Discrimination.

We dont see many Rousers riding it out with the Mad Dog crew nor do we see a mad Dog Crew member drinking beer on a friday night with the bangkal boys riding club. is this scenario possible? of course. does it happen a lot? no. Preference. Discrimination

Nobody will openly admit it. Not all will even be aware they are already discriminating. Most of the time its a mind issue, and frankly speaking it should stay there..otherwise, away yan.
Preference and Discrimination. There a very very fine line. :)

You have a point zach. But for me, same line naman ang mga scoots natin. Lml, piaggio, vespa, stella or gilera etc etc. Parepareho lang naman. Galing sila lahat sa isang concept. We all have shared same passion with our rides. In my honest opinion, its not the bike that set us apart, it is the riders and culture to which riders belong to. No offense to all the riders, just a fact.
