Ever been passed on the freeway by a guy riding a scooter? I was driving Southbound on Interstate 5 toward Sacramento, CA, when I noticed a motorcyclist in the rear-view mirror passing up a Porche that was trailing me. His single headlight was unusually high so I thought it was a chopper/custom build but didn't hear any loud exhaust. As he neared me I saw it was a Vespa LX 250 scooter! The couple in the Porche really had a hoot watching him pass: When he sped pass me, I was going over 70mph. His top speed could easily have been 85! On a Vespa 250! All I could figure was it must have been some emergency in Sacramento he was trying to make and no other transportation. That sucker seemed none too stable at that speed I tell you what. At least he had good riding gear on... and not wearing flip-flops and shorts. Dakine lo-lo, brah!
