Vespa

Here's one more picture from the vintage motorcycle show yesterday. This was the only Vespa on display. I couldn't get a shot that I liked of the whole scooter, so I'm showing you a close up again. I like the lettering of the Vespa logo, and the faint reflection of the TVA towers underneath the logo.

I saw about 200 Vespas yesterday. The first dozen or so I thought were just a coincidence but when I saw them parked rank on rank I realized there must have been some kind of Vespa owners rally or meeting. About 50 yards down the road from where I shot that picture of the Scottish piper there were at least a hundred Vespas parked.

This is a pretty color for one.

Those Vespas I mentioned, near the piper - those are the ones in Chuck's photo of the scooter rally in Victoria. We probably passed each other without knowing it....

That is a great reflection and I love that color blue!

j'adore les vespas, cela me fait toujours penser au vieux cinéma italien.
I love vespas, it always makes me think of the old Italian cinema.

Love the Vespa photo.

My dream vacation would be rent a country house in rural Italy and drive between towns on a Vespa.

I was in a wine shop here in town recently and an Italian guy who is a wine distributor came in with his red Vespa. There is now a shop on this side of town that sells them, too. I'd like to have one, I think.
