Who Rides a Scooter?

GandolfiniJames Gandolfini rides a Vespa and is a Golden Globe, three-time Emmy and five-time Screen Actors Guild Award-winning American actor known for multifaceted portrayals of conscientious yet often inherently sinister characters.

He is best known for his highly acclaimed role as Tony Soprano in the hit HBO TV series The Sopranos, about a troubled crime boss struggling to balance his family life and his career in the Mafia.

Tony Gets Whacked

We know he rides a Vespa because he got whacked by a taxi. Back in 2006 the actor was riding his Vespa up Hudson near Clarkson around 10:30 a.m. when a cab knocked him off his scooter.

Passerby Sameer Sheikh told the News that the cabbie and passers-by helped the TV mobster to his feet:

“I’m all right,” he said. “I’m fine.”

His Vespa went into the repair shop and survived the accident.

  1. Cool! I drive a scooter (Vespa LX 150 to be exact), and I always feel like people think I’m such a dork for doing so.

  2. Remember… You are what you think… Try, “I’m cool on my Vespa”
