Vespa World Days and more!

Wrapping up just a couple weeks ago was the 12th Annual Vespa World Days. This year was held in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Thousands of riders and spectators attended the event from all over the world.

Here’s a link with some of the details and delightful photos.

Vespa Wrap up

And in other Vespa news, we are inching ever closer to a fully electric model.

The Vespa Elettrica is set to be released later this year, boasting 80-160 miles per charge, depending on which model you have. The Elettrica X has double the distance of the base model, says Piaggio designers. It is supposed to maintain brand design, but offer some of the bells and whistles you’d expect from such a hi-tech machine. This will be an interesting addition to the Vespa family.

Killing it in austin

I recently went on a trip to Austin, Texas. It was an amazing place, filled with great music and food, interesting history, and more scooters than I would have guessed. Check out some cool pictures from my trip! Austin, I’ll be back, don’t you worry. 


Summer is winding down

At least here in Arizona, kids are going back to school and people aren’t traveling as much because of that. The roads are more congested, which sucks for commuters. However, we have had record heat and widespread flooding throughout the Phoenix area. It’s been a crazy summer. 

But I know that elsewhere in the country, you’re going to be heading into fall in just the next few weeks. Here, that’s like October. But the fall tends to be prime riding weather. I’m hoping to get my scooter up and running by October. I want to have that experience too! Plus, it’ll be a nice little commuter to and from work. The guys in the packaging plant where I work will tease me relentlessly, but I don’t mind. 

Anyway folks, here’s to your summer rides! Cheers!
