1959-63: Scooter PIAGGIO Vespa 125 (MI-314816)
4th November, 1959
On a major street while carrying home a friend, we crashed into the side of a car exiting a minor street and failing to observe its STOP sign.
Result for me: 2 broken metatarsal bones in my right foot, 17 days in hospital, and 1 month in a knee-length plaster cast .
My heavier friend was more 'cushioned' in his fall and therefore released the following day with just bruises.
