Question for A.D. (Vespa racer)

1951 Views 16 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  texmawby

Quick intro - Black Triumph Bonneville w/ loud pipes and hangs out with Timothy from Upstate NYC. We both race with USCRA. Now for the question.

This is totally off topic on shit, but I park on the corner of Howard street for about 1-2 hrs - 4 times a week (Boxing gym). I see your store all the time, just havent stopped by yet. I got slammed with a tik for parking on the sidewalk for $115 bucks. I see you guys always have your scoots out there all the time, do you get shit for it?

I'm planning on saying, " Yo Honor, I was at the gym and parked on the street - but some turd came and picked my bike up and placed it on the sidewalk to get my parking space"?

Do you think it'll work?

Thanks, I'll pass by tomrrow if I dont hear from you.

Thanks a bunch. I'm going to give it a shot and put up my best Brad Pitt improv! I'll let you know how it turns out.



Yeah, your right about the vin on the Vespa. But I came up with some quick release fastners that makes it easy to remove the plate. I tried it tonight and it was kool no tik. I also parked it so close to the wall to hide the VIN. In order for them to see the VIN they have to literally move the bike or squeeze there head between the moto and the wall.

PS - Tex, I am hot! Ask timothy.


So far so good no tik's yet. My wires are hiding the ones on the frame, so I cross my fingers. I'm also parking it so close to the wall that it'll be hard for them to see the vin on the engine.
