Question for A.D. (Vespa racer)

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.

There's a scooter dealer in Saratoga and one of these days I gotta' get up there and look around. I got wood for one of those old classic Vespa's and I think Vespa is now making a modern tribute bike based on the old ones. When I was courting my wife she lived in San Fran' and I'd go out to visit her there. There was a bike shop called Scuderia West. I know, "scuderia" means racing, but it really was kind of a play on words as it was mostly a scooter shop, and they did quite well as that town is very condusive to two wheel travel. In fact, it's probably the only city I've been to that I actually could live in. Back to what I was saying though, they had a load of older scooters. I particularly liked the ones painted that deep aqua color. Scooters are cool, yeah.
