    Exactly.  Who said anything about it being an affliction?  In fact, I'd say it was the opposite - I mean its a well known fact that Vespa riders live longer, are healthier, and pull more chicks/chaps (delete as appropriate). Cool

    But its clear that there is another condition that is rampant out there - Vespa envy.  I mean, however nice the SH300s and Aprilias MIGHT be to ride, I don't see other companies falling over backwards to make lookalikes of them... Wink

    Now that is an interesting question.  If all the ones above are derivatives, what was the first big wheeled scooter on the market?  Was it the Beo? Or was the Beo a copy of something previous...

    I don't hate them per se... and we've already kind of got one in that the Liberty looks like the *** love child of an ET4 and a motorcycle... i just don't like them and would prefer something else... something small, smokey and just as ugly Party!!!

    Nah, it was just a chance to be smug about how good it is to ride a Vespa.  

    But now that you've said it, maybe we do need to have something a bit more official...  I'll ask a few questions...
