I have always wanted a motor scooter. I am sure I was never exposed to Italian movies as a kid, and the town I grew up in was not what you would call a “scooter-friendly”. So where did my love of scooters come from? Back in the Eighties, Honda used music/pop stars and celebrities to market their new line of scooters. From what I remember, the scooters ran afoul of emission laws here in the US and needed to be retooled. They may not have swept across America, but they had some awesome commercials.
