Is it just when you pee? Or all the time?

Love,

That's just asking for a tasteless custom paint scheme.

Nope. The actual owner of the US claim to Lambretta has whored it out to a Tiawanese/Mainland venture called Her Chee, selling as Adly up til now.
This ranks near the top of F@#ked up marketing ventures of all time.

No the most f*&ked marking venture of all time is when Al K, who brought in Bajaj, started bringing in Chinese scooters labeled Argos and is selling them at the same price as Genuine Buddies. ( http://www.bajajusa.com )He would have been better off with the Adly's I think.

The lambretta name is goofy, but at least the scooters are a little higher quality than China and they're distinctive looking. http://2strokebuzz.com/index.php/?cat=36 and http://www.lambrettausa.com/

Al's Argo's all look like Barons, but cost more.

Yeah. I gotta admit that the Bajaj response to the auto market(a China clone)was a downer. They sent us a demo and it is good bit better than the TNG, etc version. Brakes are hugely better. The Milano front disk was not stellar. I mean it stank. The Argo front and rear combo is nice. A Milano would, after a couple weeks of non use, turn into a half hour of carb adjustments. The Argo seems much stronger at the carb. The real problem is that it's a clone and someone has seen it online for $1699. Game over.

Nope. Calling a pig, a duck, or a weasel, or an Adly a Lambretta ranks as the all time kick in the teeth to anyone who has an ounce of respect for scooters and their lineage.
I can't begin to explain the level that this makes me ill.
