    Grounded, after only two weeks.

    I tipped my Vespa yesterday while avoiding a squirrel (never again!) got a broken elbow. Now both of my sweet modes of transport are gathering dust while I heal. And I was just getting into the groove of commuting, endorphin-rush and all! 'Snot fair, I tell you.
    The scooter sustained a small dent and some scratches. I need sympathy, and a rum drink.

    Why didnīt you just run the squirrel over? Itīs you or the squirrel and it looks like that the squirrel got the better deal I wouldnīt mind using your Vespa while you heal though What year is it?

    Have you seen the size of a vespa's tires? You'd flip if you hit a squirrel!

    Studded tires. Chew those critters up and spit 'em out. Get fenders.
