I'm a closeted mod.

I ride a motorcycle but I've always wanted to ride a vintage Italian scooter. I see them for sale online occasionally and I pine, but as an environmentally conscious person and can't get past that they have dirty smokey antiquated 2 -stroke engines.

Ever notice those container ships anchored in English Bay? They burn heavy crude oil.
About 18 of them running for a year pollute more (CO2,NoX,SOx) than all the cars in the world do.
So one of those ships visiting Vancouver for a week probably pollutes more than all the cars will in a couple years.
So go ride your scooter and don't worry about it.
BTW, Vespa does make newer ones that are four stroke.

Scooters are fun, motorcyclists take themselves too seriously.
