bye bye black betty

my Vespa lx150 (aka my pride and joy) will soon have a new owner :(

the buyer has just informed me that he plans on tricking her out and taking her with him on the gumball 3000.

this is the first i have heard of it, so i did a little research:

“the gumball 3,000 is an annual 3,000 mile international road rally which takes place on public roads, with a different 3,000 mile route around the world each year. founded in 1999, it sees an annual entry of 120 cars, which are mostly exotic and powerful sports cars. entry fee is £30,000.”

in 2010, the rally will go from London to NYC, passing through Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Boston, Quebec and Toronto, on the way.

well, as hard as it has been for me to come to terms with deserting black betty, i can’t think of anything more badass for her to do. rock on.
