"Rejet."

"I think I met you at last year's [rally]."

"Classic not plastic!"

"The vintage guys are snobs."

"Check your rollers."

"Vapor lock." (Shit Buddy owners say.)

"Yeah, but it's not a VESPA." (Shit Modern Vespa owners say.)

"We are the Mods!" (Shit people who aren't actually the Mods say.)

"Seafoam!"

In case you don't spend as much time on social media or indulging memes as I do, what this is about: http://is.gd/OTbW3e

"I'm going to switch to Heinedau tires when my OEMs wear out."

"I can get all my groceries in the pet carrier."

"How do you like my new Corazzo jacket?"

"I can go on the freeway when I have to."

"It's probably the stator."

"I made my own clutch nut removal tool."

"Amerivespa was pretty cool this year, but..."

"I had to split the cases so I'm taking the car this week."

"This was a factory special."

And my all-time favorite -

"I love the smell of Castrol in the morning."

I commented on FB that I hadn't seen ANY of the videos, and got a combination of responses, from (essentially) "Are you just too cool to watch them?" to "Are you talking about that cancelled Shatner show?" (Ha, that was pugbuddy!)

I would watch Shit Scooterists Say, though.

illnoise? Smile

“Yes – all that came out of the pet carrier” (said this weekend at my MSF class to the other motorcycle riders).

“They are really neat – and get like 100 mpg don’t they” (heard this weekend from my MSF instructor in front of the whole class).
