If you wanted "Wheels of India", you'd have to replace the spider on the badge with a scarab beetle.

I suppose my Serveta wouldn't qualify either. Does that mean I'm not vintage anymore?

They're just fucking scooters after all.

And frankly, they probably wouldn't care.


I would know. And my mom always told me to tell the truth. Besides not all scooters are created equally. Some are old and cool.

Yes, I think just about everybody on this forum would know. And I bet none of us would disagree with you. A GL in good condition is way cooler than a Stella, no question. But most of the motorcycle people see all of them as scooters and hence inferior. People love building hierarchies that make them feel good. Fucking motorcyclists.

And how are we different from the motorcyclists? Yes a Scooter is a scooter but a GS is cooler that a GL and a stella is neither. Lets just agree that the stella has no place at an all Italy show. That's all I'm saying. Go to the show support the Italian machines, appreciate the history of style but don't try to pass an Indian bike off as Italian. Sure Piaggio came up with the design and licenced LML to make them in india but they are still made in India. And therefore an Indian bike. Well I guess its a moot point anyway since they arent making them anymore... Sorry I got caried away...

I agree with all that. I'm just saying, I bet they don't know the difference. Besides, I love the Italian design that made my Stella possible. I don't think there's a Stella owner who isn't in love with Piaggio's classic designs.

Plurimatic
Italjet
Super
P210

why you ask? The Pluri would get there faster than your GL.
