I have a completely different idea of what cool looks like.

A Vespa had to die for the Segway to look cool.

*Checks out article.

Nope, still looks like a dork on a Segway.

How on earth can you ban skateboards and bicycles from a city's sidewalks, yet allow pretentious dorks to parade around on the damn things with impunity?
I just want to plant my shoulder into one of those morons and watch them go flying ass over teakettle.

To be honest, you kinda look like a dork on a Vespa as well. I think at best you can get a root mean square average from the two on the dorkness scale. ( X^2 + Y^2 = Z^2 )

Segway = I think I'm cool, I like to move around quickly, and/or I just love gadgets.
Scooter = I'm too much of a loser for a motorcycle, and even I know it.

Segway wins.

See that's exactly my point.  On the Vespa, he looks pretty sharp.  Off the Vespa, he looks like a dork.  Therefore the Vespa makes him cool, rather than the other way around.  Q.E.D.

The Vespa died for nothing.
 
2013-12-13 01:12:21 PM
It's amazing, someone builds something that automatically balances on two wheels, and actually senses the body shift when you want to turn, and people still badmouth it.

Jesus, talk about 1st world priorities.

They are both dorky. Nothing gained, nothing lost.

So what's so cool about a vespa?  It's just a freakin' moped.

If you're buzzing around on a Vespa in the middle of Rome, you're cool.

If you're using one to get to work in Schenectady, you're an idiot.

I have news for you. Neither a Vespa or Segway look cool. Combining them won't help.
 
2013-12-13 02:07:07 PM
I don't get the hate for scooters. I'm a former motorcycle owner and I own a Vespa now it's a lot more use in slow moving stop and go traffic and way more comfortable when you end up stuck at red light after red light but it can still hit over 100mph when I need it to as well. Really it's a hell of a lot of fun and just more practical in general and if I don't get the manly points I can live with it and if I ever wanted to go back to a motorcycle it's the same license so that wouldn't be a big deal but I can't ever see it happening.

You should add some punctuation to that.

I wish we had the three wheel single person vehicles like they've got in japan.  I'm not sure exactly what to call them but they were predominantly used by pizza delivery services.  It had one front wheel and two back wheels.  The seat and front wheel of the vehicle could lean but the back wheels didn't.  While they may look a lot of wonky I just always thought they would be incredibly convenient little vehicles to get around in.   nihonshock.com

For $4k you could get the whole Vespa. This is like grinding up a good T-Bone steak to make hamburgers. You could do it but it's such a waste on so many levels.

sweet! i'm glad someone has the balls to cheer for scooters. economical high MPG transportation that is sold by the millions in countries around the world deserve a thumbs up. if more Farkers were out living life outside the county they grew up in they wouldn't be shiatting on many of the things that are pooped on in so many threads. Vespa in particular are a really well made machine, with older models fetching good money whether or not they are restored.

and that's why skinink is my Farker of the Day.

You're not making Segways any better, you're just making Vespas worse.
