    I’m so so so so sorry. Nonsense that you can pay as much as you do each month for insurance that doesn’t actually help when you need it. But at least you have that pretty blue lady to ride. Take that insurance money, pay off some debts and get yrself a plane ticket! ; )

    Can you get the body back and make something cool out of it? A ham sandwich? Office furniture? A stolen novelty lighter?

    Getting stuck with that deductible sucks, but Jim’s right. The bike has got to be worth something if you part it out.

  • 4. Robert  |  July 25, 2007 at 8:45 am

    It’s worth something, but no where near the 5200 dollars it costs to buy a new bike. I’ve thought of these things already.

    Poop.

    I second Kiala’s “poop”.

    Didn’t realize your deductible & taxes added up to $5200.

    Some guy in my building recently bought an Il Bella from these guys: http://www.flyscooters.com/catalogue.swf. I think it’s made in China, but it’s still really nice. Seeing as how it’s just been parked for the 6 weeks since he got it and the tires still have chalk lines on them, maybe you could perma-borrow it.

    Any scooter made in China = complete garbage. Call me a snob, but I only ride Vespas. A post is coming up on what I’m doing next with everything.

    Ouch, man. Sounds bad.
    I hope you’re ok though.
    Long live the Black and Tan!

    Robert,

    You are an antiquated snob….

    News for you, Piaggio has started making scooters in China. Your next Vespa will soon carry the tag…”MADE IN CHINA” But of course you will gladly pay 3 times as much for a similar quality 150cc scooter because it has a Vespa logo…right? Guess where my Apple computer is made? What is not made in China these days anyway?

    Leon! Thanks for your comments. You are a douche, and completely missed my point about Chinese scooters and Vespas in general. I hope you get in an argument with your fat wife about “People’s Court,” then fall asleep smoking a cigarette and then get horrible burns on your back/neck/face.

    Signed,
    Antiquated Snob

    P.S. Vespas are better than Fly Scooter because they say Vespa on them.

    P.S.S. I replied to your awesome comment on my blog.

    P.S.S.S You and all the Tonys of the world share your name with anthropomorphized tigers. Go eat a dick on your shitty “Fly Scooter.”

    P.S.S.S.S This is all hilarious to me.

  • 13. Leon  |  August 19, 2007 at 11:34 pm

    I am sure it is hilarious to you Robert. But… how did you get your permit to ride a scooter? Don’t you have to be over 16 in CA to ride a 150cc? From your comment, it appears that you have not reach that stage of maturity yet, at least not mentally.

    Leon

    PS. I did respond to your new blog. I do agree with you on this point. It is an awesome comment.

  • 14. Robert  |  August 20, 2007 at 12:05 am

    I bought a fake I.D. so I could get my permit down here! Joke is on the DMV!

    Also – I love that we are having dual discussions, one on this post, and one on the other. You are right, I haven’t yet reached the mental maturity of a 16 year old, because we all know that 16 year old are the pinnacle of reason and (apparently) driving skills?

    Yes – you left an awesome comment. I nominate you for awesome-of the year! My only other comment was a spam comment on my triumph scrambler post about some Nextel poop (trying to tone down the potty mouth for you. See.. I care!!)

    Kindest regards,
    -Robert!
