Recently while parked in Majoribanks St , a passer by asks:

“Is this a Vespa?”

“Sure”,  I reply “1970 Supersport.” Then he briefly tells his story of having ridden from north of Norway to south of Spain in the 60’s aboard a 1961 lambretta. All the while tears are welling up in his eyes as he relives the trip in his memory. I shook his hand before moving on.

A 10 point bonus for a Mille Miglia story!
