Lambretta. Not a ‘Kronenbourg’

SX150-PostcardViz’s “Roger’s Profanisaurus” (Surely one of the finest, most creative works in the english language) defines a Kroneburg (sic) thus ” A lady who appears from behind to be about ’16’, but reveals herself to be about ’64’ when she turns around “. Gentlemen, we’ve all been there. Well, there are scooters like that. Look ok from the back, look pants from the front (Peugeot S57 / Terrot VMS1 you know I’m talking about you), or vice-versa.

Luckily, riding a Lambretta, it’s something you don’t have to worry about. As this publicity shot shows. Ok, it’s an SX, but all Lambrettas look equally as good from the front and rear.

Bonus tip; to make your arse look slimmer  if you’ve put on a pound or two over the years… is to go for one of the more voluptuous models, like a S1 or 2. Works for me.

t’s a bit crowded in the Louge girls. And the buggers haven’t put any tables outside. We’ll just sit on the scooters. Sidesaddle. The hanging baskets are looking a little sad too…

The weather is pretty grotty here in the UK, not too cold, but wet. Very wet. And windy. So here’s an old publicity shot to warm the cockles. Going out to anybody in the UK who is under water, or anyone in the States who’s having it a bit chilly at the moment!
