RYDE, ENGLAND - AUGUST 25: Riders participate in the 'Ride Out', which brings the scooter festival to a close on August 25, 2013 in Ryde, England. The annual event, which is organized by the British Scooter Rally Association and The VFM Scooter Collective, attracts around 6000 riders each year and has been running since 1980. The scooter in 1960s Britain was a fashion statement and the often heavily customized bikes, usually an Italian Vespa or Lambretta, became synonymous with the Mod scene. They provided an inexpensive mode of transport and escapism to an upwardly mobile youth at a time when public transportation stopped early. The Vespa was depicted on the cover of The Whos Quadrophenia album in 1973. (Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images)
