This is fun to ride (think open roads). Thing is, it's rather heavy.

Given I'm 140 lbs, it's a bit… you know… heavy! 😂

Still, I love the way it shakes my helmet at idle… the way it barks loudly when opening it up… the front brakes are really good too.

Side stand is a liability - easily knocked off it if you're not careful.

Apart from the heft (and side stand), it's quite likeable. 👍

Who is more Macho? Generations of shaking and loud pipes.

I do admit, many Harely Guy's have shown interested in my
Vespa when parked near them.

A biker bar sits smack dab in the middle of one of our favorite wide sweeping canyon runs that me and my girls go scooting on regularly. We still get the accidental waves here and there but lately the "wild hogs" have been giving us genuine waves, almost too many to count now that prime riding season is nearly here.
Apparently there are others that love them all 🛵🏍️

I am in no way a fan of H-D, or the culture or image. I do not own any H-D T shirts or anything else with the H-D name on it. I am only a fan of the bikes they used to make, and would like them just as much no matter who made them. H-D no longer makes anything I want, and they haven't in a long time.

I thought about getting n MV Agusta tattoo just to be a contrarian but never did. It always seemed to me that the ones with the tee shirts and tattoos were just posers...

It's cheesy yet like milk you know is rotten, just gotta take a sniff anyway 😂

I see the attraction to be part of a "brotherhood" of guys, doing guy things, probably similar to military squads, cops, fireman or being a teenager and having that tight knit inner circle of bros but these guys are playing with fire
