Hey Chris,

You seem to know a lot about this stuff.

What if someone has an Italian frame with an Indian engine?

Would they be allowed?

I was up all night thinking this one over and I can't figure it out. Can you help?

Well now, what an interesting dilema... I'd say yes due only to this fact (and feel free to quote me on this, but please give credit where credit is due):

If you grow a peanut in georgia and it gets shipped to montana and cracked open by a super hot kindergarden teacher, who eats the peanut and then desides that she wants to "restore" the peanut but doesnt have the original peanut for the inside. She then locates on the International Peanut BBS a peanut that was grown in texas that will fit just fine. Finally she puts the peanut back together. Is it a georgia peanut or a texas peanut. I say georgia peanut since the body of the peanut is what you see when you look at a peanut. Now keep in mind that the lady in question is a SUPER HOT KINDERGARDEN TEACHER and therefor can get away with putting a cashew inside and telling me it was a grape.

Thank you for your time.

Chris Scootermonkey Satan.

Chris,

I thought you were going to tell us how you would have "restored" the peanut she ate when she was done with it.

thinking about going and bring the GP200 for good ole India.... would that be wrong.... sounds like it it would be.

Its had plastic surgery so it looks like it was made in Italy.

No SIL badges anywhere.

Okay so I have the new P, which is more Italian than a Stella. But it's overpriced so that makes me less cool. And it's not vintage so I'm even less cool. OMG, I just can't decide how cool I am, will some pompous loserbag please judge me!?!?!

You can't buy cool.

Hey who are you calling loserbag? I prefer Douchbag. And your point is moot since the Wheels of Italy thing if for Italian vehicles of all kinds not just vintage. That's the only point I have been trying to get across. A stella is not Italian. It is just rebadged with an Italian name. Besides I think it should have been named the Mario for some reason and then Phils adds could have had Captain Lou Albano in them with the rubberbands hanging off his cheek and everything yelling at a young Cindy Lauper. That's what I think.

And gentlemen, if one were to throw a Piaggio logo, a P200 badge, and some grease on a stella none of those motorcycle guys would know the difference. Heck, they probably wouldn't know the difference if somebody didn't do those things.

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.

Chris


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.


Hello? WTF? Oh that's right, I got a motorcycle and had to drill out half my brain when I got the title. I know I'm mainly an occassional lurker here, but most of the Ducati folks who hang out at betty's and such think Scooters are cool, and we've talked about why y'all don't come hang out down at Italian (or Indian, whatever) night. Anyways, I usually go say hi to scooterists when I see you, and hopefully you'll come say hi to me on my Duc. at the WOI. http://www.flickr.com/photos/94693506@N00/186857710/

Totally, I love Ducatis or is it Ducati with a long I sound at the end. One of the coolest designs in the two wheel universe in my oppinion.

Yes, and I lust for an Aprilia Pegaso and will probably be getting one next year. Things are majorly tongue-in-cheek around here - you've been hanging around long enough to know the sort of "I'm bored let's argue" festivals that happen here every couple months.

And besides, with all the recent fighting in the other thread, why'd you choose to dig up this ancient battle?
