Toronto Star | Submitted by: Kathy

"We're here for more than just a scooter run," explained one serious-faced rider from Shizuoka mounted on an Italian Lambretta scooter with his identically dressed girlfriend. "Mod means cool music. Mod means cool clothes. Mod is a way of life." A group of French tourists burst into laughter as the noisy parade rolled by - the sight of meticulous young Japanese imitating British ruffians must tickle the Gallic funnybone..."
