    A vintage scooter made of metal v big slabs of molded plastic? I'm not a bit surprised the Vespa garnered more attention. Rightfully so, plus it was parked next to that butt ugly KTM to accent the contrast!

    On a related topic, I looked at BMW scooters today, YIKES! Man are they ugly. Just a mass of tupperware with as much style as a refrigerator.
    I guess I really don't like maxi-pad scooters, though that Honda 700 somehow looks pretty good to me. If that's still a scooter.

    The owner of the butt ugly KTM was the first one to take a pic.



    Come to think of it, he took that pic. :lol3

    Hey, beauty isn't everything. Thankfully, for me. :wave
    He probably loves that homely, unreliable, beast of a bike.

    Indeed he does, and who can really blame him?

    Imagine you are dating a girl who has a homely face, and who bitches a lot, but also happens to be a nymphomaniac gymnast.

    So, KTM 990s are the Nadia Comaneci of motorcycles?

    BMW 1200GSs must be named Brumhilda.

    And that early sixties Vespa? Gina Lollobrigida!

    Thanks for that painful reminder.
    I was trying to keep it contemporary with the 1964 Vespa.

    Back on topic...
    Here's my Scooter

    I like round headlights too.

    Took this snap of my C70 tonight before heading out to pick up beer (I wanted to try out the new rear case I added).

    That Ruck may belong to the Legendary Wan. No one would have the hubris to be an imposter would they???:patch

    DandyDoug,

    There are two more pair of driving lights going on next week (it has a separate LARGE auto battery for the lights). There is a four gallon fuel cell in the sidecar as auxillary, too. Don't need no stinking fuel gauge, your bladder stops you first. :1drink
