Stuff White People Like – So Good it HURTS!

I can’t help myself, I love my Vespa, If I am not in my veggie powered 4WD (with Apple sticker on the back window), I drive my Vespa to sit in a non-franchised, un-corporate cafe drinking fairtrade organic coffee, in front of me on the table is my Apple Macbook with a Molskine notebook on top and my iPhone alongside.

I AM A STEREOTYPE – aghhhhhh, I need a new life!  🙂   This website I found has caught me out. I am predictable, readable and … aghhh it hurts so much I could not help but laugh … and laugh  … and laugh. I had tears running down my cheeks. Christine has been saying the things this guy blogs about for years to me. This is so clever!

He was on Triple J last week apparently. He writes about Things White People Like, here is his list – You need to visit his site!

Forever Vespa

A one off showing of the Vespa doco from the Italian Film Festival at Paridiso in Northbridge this arvo was attended by many Vespa lovers! 3 of them were Matt, Craig and myself. We had a great ride into town, a movie a coffee and chat about permaculture at a new coffee shop and a beaut ride home along the coast.

Wet Wet Wet

Remember that band? What did they sing?
Anyway, wet is what I was after an afternoon trip scooter ride home from Subiaco today.
I saw the front building all day and knew I was going to be stuck in it, but I had no idea just how heavy it would be.
I had plastic pants, but I am a bit short of good waterproof tops at present. My Goretex is 20 years old and leaks bad, so I took a plastic poncho a got given by a friend when we were in Cambodia.
The wind tore it to shreds, by the time I got home I was trailing bits of plastic coat along behind the scooter, I was wet right through my thick jacket and soaked through the t-shirt…jeans were dry!
Nothing that a warm shower wouldn’t fix, I loved winding my way through the back streets of Woodlands and Doubleview to get me to Karrinyup rd, this is all my old stomping ground.
I had a data projector in my pack, but that stayed dry under the pack cover!
Good times on the scoot! 🙂

Joondalup Thing Grows

Yes we are really a happening group, we are seeing a revival here.
This is a snap shot of our latest edition to the group.
I was going to say that Matt and Tam had this baby, but I think Tam would say it was all Matt’s pushing that brought this baby into our world, welcome ox!

I Fit The "Average Buyer"

Check this statement out in an article I was reading online here.

“You really can’t beat a Vespa as far as utility,” said Mark Wilson, who fixes and refurbishes scooters at his Grover Beach shop, Bulletproof Scooters. “I could ride my Vespa for three weeks and not have to fill up.”

Motor scooter sales boomed from 42,000 in 2000 to an estimated 120,000 last year, according to the Motorcycle Industry Council, The average buyer is a middle-aged, male, married professional with a college education and a household income of about $48,000, the council reported.

Do you count 38 and 336 days old as ‘middle age’?

Oh and one more thing…I thought he (MW) was heading up he Baptist WA churches…not fixing Vespas…aghh I guess you can’t resist the higher call of God on your life.
