Quang Nguyen’s hi-tech Vespa GTS

If I’d ever bothered to write about Amerivespa in Seattle, I’d have told you about Quang Nguyen’s Vespa GTS. Engadget beat me to it with a post about Nguyen’s “Best Modern Vespa”-winning scooter with a touchscreen Wi-Fi PC built into the glovebox. (ViaThe Scooter Scoop.) Another modern Vespista pitched an assfit about losing the award to Nguyen’s cool-but-gimmicky (and to be honest, somewhat sloppy) bike, but the more that dude got worked up over not winning a $6 skirt-bike trophy, the more I was happy Nguyen won, his bike certainly did stand out. (More scooter trophy surprises and disappointments in my upcoming review of the Quad Cities rally, ha.)

  1. Dissapointments at the QC rally? You deserved your trophy! Well, you were the most deserving non-Knuckledragger…

  2. Cool (if geeky & intense) guy. And the fact that some asshat was complaining (!) about losing a scooter trophy made it sweeter.

    Weird thing was we were at the end of day one of riding back home, roll into a random campground on Oregon Coast, and there’s Quang. He’s decided to stay at the place for a couple of weeks and study for school, popping down to the nearest town to use his onboard wi-fi receiver.
