Not sure if this is going on everywhere... but in Chicago mopeds are way in. The hipper than hip indie rock kids have revived the moped this summer. Not Vespas. Not any old scooter. And in no way a motorcycle. Mopeds.
On Saturday in front of Hot Doug's there were at least 50 mopeds lined up next to each other on the street. A sort of bike gang... but not tough and scary. More like dorky and stinky.
I so wish I would of had my camera on me - it was a good photo opportunity. And the best thing we over heard while waiting in line was "You don't know shit about mopeds duded!" Classic.
So go to your local garage sale and pick up your moped so you can be cool and hip too.
