Talking Vespa doesn't have an affect on sexual orientation...

The starter post on this thread is old, so my response may be late, but I'll chime in anyway for future readers considering a scooter.

I have a Vespa 250 GTS that I ride around town. It hasn't had any affect on my sexual orientation. I wasn't 'gay' before, and I don't think I've switched sides after riding it. (I was very 'happy' though, but I'm certain that is not the intended usage of the term in this case.)

Now granted, this particular Vespa may have been a placebo, so I can't be certain what it would do to other riders.

Additionally, a true hipster rarely worries about what others think. Only posers worry about those sort of things. One is either cool, or they're not. Usually the posers fall into the latter category.

It is all about making YOU happy, them? I don't care about them.

So it looks like the original poster of the thread bought a BV 350 1 year ago. I hope he comes back to the thread and lets us know how hes doing with it..

Just ran across this thread. At the tech school where I teach there are 4 Harley owners and one Honda cruiser owner. I am the only daily rider on my GT200 and any doubts about my manhood were erased when I rode in 15 degree weather (we don't get a lot of cold weather). All of the students get a kick out of the scoot and are constantly asking to ride it. I am long past the age where I am worrying about image. I'll leave that to my teenage students.

I've had a 150cc scoot for around a month now.
I deliberately don't mention the fact that I have a larger bike when people comment on it but I have noticed that friends and acquaintances who know me feel the need to tell others "He has a big bike as well"
It's funny that they're embarrassed for me
It doesn't seem to matter if they ride or not.
Who cares? I'm having a ball.
