Vintage Vespas with 2 stroke engines and manual transmissions are definitely NOT "girly bikes. They are messy, smelly, and clunky. Bumps will knock your teeth out. I have a Genuine Stella 2 stroke, which is pretty much the same thing, and I cannot imagine a "feminine" type person wanting one. It is more difficult to ride in traffic than a Sportster. I also have a Vino 125, call it what you want, I like it. It's not nearly as much fun as the Stella, but is far more reliable and practical. I still want a freeway capable scooter that doesn't look like a Silverwing, Burgman, Majesty, etc.

I also have a Goldwing, but as was said, that is a completely different experience.
