Ok so I was working on my bike in the parkade the other day, and a friend of mine who lives in my building rode by on a little Tao tao scooter. He came by to look at my bike and when I asked him about the scooter, he said he'd just randomly looked on Craigslist for fun, and saw that there was this near-new little scooter for $450, so he picked it up. He figured he doesn't have a car (we live downtown) but this would be a cheap and fun little was to run errands.
So then he says "man, I've only had this thing for two days and people have been yelling shit at me. People walking, but mostly guys on motorbikes. This guy on a sportbike comes up at a red and goes 'you get much pussy on that thing? haha' and then peels out".
Oh man I was laughing but seriously WHO DOES THIS? The funny thing is that he's a personal trainer with a pretty hot girlfriend, not that it matters (sssshhh, it totally does...) and he was totally unaware of the steep two-wheeled pecking order.
Anyway, I told him if he moved to Italy, where his scooter would be more appreciated...
So how many of us bikers are actually THAT big of douchebags?
