“I cannot stop riding that Vespa. I dream about it when I’m away.”

In a recent Q & A with Vanity Fair, actor Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) shares his love of riding his Vespa. Bradley’s not alone, Vespa riding is an addiction. Let Vespa Lexington be your Fun Dealer.

So, first things first. Do you own a car?

I own two cars. A 2007 black Prius, and a 2004 G55 AMG Mercedes truck. Oh, and a Vespa.

A Vespa?

Yeah. Todd Phillips gave Vespas to the cast of The Hangover II when we finished shooting. And I thought, a Vespa? What the heck kind of gift is that? I mean, it’s nice, but I’ll never drive it. But I tell you, I cannot stop riding that Vespa. I dream about it when I’m away. It’s gotten to the point where I think I’m screwed

Read the full Q&A here at Vanity Fair.

New Spring Field Note Brand Dry Transfer Editions In The House.

For all you habitual Field Note junkies out there, we are excited to announce we now have in stock the new spring edition Dry Transfer notebooks. Totally awesome and definitely won’t last long. We also re-stocked on the Field Note Steno pads, our last batch didn’t last long. They never do.

I put the word WINNING on my new Dry Transfer notebook and every time Charlie Sheen tweets something I write it down in my notebook.

“On Thursday, we gave our e-mail list (sign up to your left!) first dibs on the newest limited-edition COLORS notebooks, the Dry Transfer “_______ Edition.” These books look just like our regular Dur-O-Tone “Packing Brown Wrap” graph-paper memo books, but we’ve left off our logo and included a sheet of dry-transfer lettering, allowing you to customize them with any text you like. 3-Packs and subscriptions are still available, but act fast, when these are gone, you’re once again stuck with the letters F, I, E, L, D, N, O, T, E, and S, placed in an order of our choosing.”

New Genuine Stella 4-Strokes Have Landed.

Well Friday was a exciting day at Vespa Lexington. Our first shipment of Genuine scooters arrived. We sold our first Buddy on Saturday morning. In the shipment of Genuine scooters we got two of the much anticipated Genuine Stella 4-Strokes. They are awesome and ready to hit the streets. Check em out below and swing by the shop this week to take ownership of the awesomeness that is Stella.

“Stella, our first love. She’s now clean and green, and the only REAL modern vintage scooter in America that’s not just another copy of a classic style from Italy. Her pedigree is pure Italian, her charm unmistakable. Her green character and miserly gas consumption are the product of the world’s most pragmatic and forward thinking engineers in India. She still shifts like a sports car, but the engine is quiet and the vibrations are gone. In a variety of happy colors, she boasts an EPA city rating of 140 miles per gallon. Dress her up; she’s ready to go wherever you go. You can hook up a handmade, all-steel sidecar in matching colors if you want to be the coolest person on your block.

Stella, the one and only modern vintage scooter. From Genuine Scooters, who else?

Can you feel the love?”
Genuine Stella

Larry Crowne Movie Trailer

The trailer for the upcoming movie Larry Crowne starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts has hit the internet. Normally don’t post movie trailers but this movie has got a lot of hot scooter action in it. Group rides and scooter clubs. From what I can tell Tom Hanks gets fired, he starts riding a scooter and Julia Roberts falls in love with him.

Looking for love? Swing by the shop and fall in love with our Vespa, Piaggio, Genuine, and SYM scooters. Fall in love with the gas savings and the massive amounts of fun you’ll have. We have got something for everyone from a 50cc up to a big 500cc scooter. We got it all.
