Save gas, annoy people with a buzzing thing
By James Grahame
All of a sudden, scooters are the rage. It could have something to do with gas reaching $428 a gallon, but maybe it's just because everyone's realized how retro-cool they look riding around on sleek little whirring things.
My current crush is the new-but-old-looking LX 150 by Vespa. It ain't cheap, but it's guaranteed to make you look like Flash Gordon's best friend. I'm still waiting for the first Hollywood chase scene starring nothing but scooters. And Natalie Portman. Naked.
