1 – Pete Townshend

Pete Townshend

The man who wrote Quadrophenia and introduced Mods vs. Rockers to the world rides a Vespa, and for that reason he’s at the top of our list. Okay, maybe it has also something to do with the fact he penned rock classics such as Tommy, “Baba O’Riley” and “My Generation” too. The man is a legend, and his songs are a staple of biker (and scooter) culture, so Pete Townshend comes in at Number One in our Vespa Riders book. Who’s yours?
