Damn! During Straight week, not one Vespa in sight.


My wife and kids outed me, I'm straight. Deal with it

Okay, I'm old and not with it, but what do Vespas (or skis, for that matter) have to do with one's sexual orientation?

They don't. But Gay Skii Week does cater to a mostly gay/lesbian population and the fashion show happens during that week. The Telluride AIDS Benefit (TAB) fashion shows support everyone living wiht HIV/AIDS thorugh the participation of local, national, and international volunteers. Gay or straight. Actutally TAB volunteers are mostly straight while the organizer are mostly gay.

So please don't be shy. Despite Miley's welcome outburst of lesbian pride, your comments on the photo, in my opinion, will not constitute an admission of sexual orientation.

Aside from TAB noble support of the gay community. I just posted this picture because I love the way that the bike definitely outshines the models despite their accessories or lack thereof. Their smiles and their attitude embodies our (MVers') passion for everything Vespa. The message that I got when I first saw this photo was Vespa=Happiness. And that's why I like it so much and I thought I would share it with the forum.

To Miley: I LOVE lesbians and I would probably be one if I was a woman. But I am just happy being gay.

Where is the dividing line between learning something new every day and TMI?

Hope I didn't cross that line and if I did my sincerest apologies

To Haole: It's straight week every week, isn't it? But do you like the picture? That is not my bike but it looks just like it.

To T5bitsa69: Here in Kansas it is the same way. Maybe even more so than in the UK. I don't get iit either. I never understood the connection. Maybe a pink one flying a rainbow flag.

They must have had something like that going on down in Eureka Springs last year. Lots of guys wearing leather chaps and vests, leather caps. Wait a minute; come to think of it, they were all riding Harleys. Now I am truly confused.

If you're not confused, you don't understand what's going on.

My leather chaps were custom made. If they were not at or going to Henry's (you know the bar upstairs by the tatoo parlour). Then they were probably not. If they were talking to the drag queens across the street and kept smiling, they were just entertained.

So folks how do you the picture

Err No. Every week is NOT straight week, What I or anybody else does sexually is none of anybody else's business.


BTW, Cool Scooter!

Thanks ... finally something about the Vespa scooter. Everyone (including mysellf) just got carried away with the legend and forgot about the picture. Mine is just like that. If that is really a gts250.

Nice pic, but I'm pretty certain thats an lx and not a gts!. For me I'm not really bothered about anyone sexual orientation either way but the fact they ride a vespa makes them cool with me

I stand corrected. It's hard to tell from the front. How can you tell. Is it the leg shield that is thinner? Mine is gray like that anyway.

The hideous US spec turn signals are the biggest clue.
