Harley vs Vespa

This is over a year old post on YouTube but a search on this forum revealed no results...

[youtubehngf65l]QCjrQFNMqa8[/youtubehngf65l]

The translation:

"What was that?"
"I'll catch him!"
"...or maybe not."
"DAMMIT!!!"
"...and he's gone."

Go turn in your man card. Your girlfriend/wife laughed at you when the Vespa passed you...

Re: Harley vs Vespa


I’m not afraid to go fast – it’s the crashing and burning that scares me.

Actually, I'm too cheap to go too fast. Have you seen the price of gas lately?

It's SO time for another long road trip!!! - like THAT'S ever going to happen now.

No point. Just a fun vid.

Bob Hall's (generally considered to be the "father" of the Miata) email tagline was "If you can't drive fast with 90 HP, 900 won't help."

Re: Harley vs Vespa

Funny how the HD rider has protective gear and the Vespa rider is in a T-shirt and shorts.

Re: Harley vs Vespa

Yeah that is a a great video.

" With Plumbers Butt."
That is what I saw but looking at a freeze shot it is a back rest I think.

Good idea about the protective gear. So in the end the little scooter guy is fast but not too smart.

NO! You are right that is the plumber. What an Ass in more ways then one.

Re: Harley vs Vespa

While I don't condone the lack of protective equipment and the practice of crossing the center in blind corners, you have to admit he rides that Vespa like a raped ape.

A popular saying in dualsport circles is; "It takes 12 HP to tour the world -- the rest is wheelspin..."

Another saying I have seen here that applies is; "It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow."

Re: Harley vs Vespa

A few months back I and a couple of my 650 buddies rode with a group of vespa riders on what they called the "Three Peaks Challenge". Idea being to ride to the top of the three highest peaks in the SF Bay area in one day and cover about 200 iles doing it. We had the the HP, top speed and acceleration advantage, but **** if they couldn't out run us in the twisties most of the time. Didn't hurt that they all seemed to ride like they were immortal but still had a death wish.
