It'd be hypocritical to completely disregard them strictly because they...

If it doesn't "strike a chord" with me (good pun, BTW) then I simply don't like them. And, I don't feel that I should like them just because they may be critically acclaimed or liked by others. At the same time, I may not get why others...

+1 to the aforementioned Post-Bends era Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Flaming Lips, Belle and Sebastian, My Bloody Valentine, MC5 Other critically lauded artists I respect but never really got into: Jesus and Mary Chain Stone Roses The Doves Mercury Rev Mars Volta Muse Bjork Pink Floyd Bob Dylan Post post-punk/Goth era Cure (eg. seventeen seconds, faith)... aside from singles on Staring at the Sea... Black Flag

A couple relatively new bands I'm really diggin these days: Glasvegas - Buncha rockabilly-gone-pop Glaswegians highly touted by Alan McGee The Subways - This song is used in the trailer for Guy Ritchie's new film Rocknrolla. They're oft compared to Arctic Monkeys, but I liken them much more to the Von Bondies. Skybombers - noisy little lo-fi aussie garage band

I've got a 50cc vepsa ET2 as well. 5000 miles and 4 years later, it's still my reliable daily rider. I'm gonna sell it for a giant flat-screen tv once I no longer need it for the commute to school. In Calif, you still need the M-class (motorcycle) license for the Vespa since it doesn't qualify as a moped (no pedals). About the issue on what to wear... I suppose it depends on whether you the want the road rash on your ass to match your suit, or relatively minor...

+1 on the Oris TT1 recs. You can get the Oris TT1 Divers Titan for $875 which is just a hair over your price range. http://authenticwatches.com/63375627059mb.html Rubber strapped TT1's can be had for about the same price or even cheaper. Never purchased from this website, but they do have a physical store which reassuring.
