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.

New Year, New Scooter Goals

Hello out there in cyberland!

While having a family and job can really take a toll on “free time”, the passion that is Scooter Culture is alive and well with our Gang.

My scooter-partner-in-crime has been exceedingly busy, as have I, with the usual time sucks. He’s got himself a snazzy Stella these days, and I’m still screwing with the Vespa that just will not live. I’ve got grand plans to take apart the motor to get that done right again. At the very least, she’s safe in my garage, awaiting some spare time to take out her heart for some surgery.  We’re getting there.

What’s cool is that a fellow from my day job is a scooter enthusiast as well. He’s the former owner of a little Honda Ruckus. Now that he’s got a scooter-enthusiast-buddy in me, he’s even more motivated to get riding again! SCORE!

So while we’re limping along through this lame excuse for a winter, we are making eversoslight progress around these parts.

Scooter Pic of the Day: 2 for 1-er

Yes, yes….I  already posted one, but in a very non-masculine moment:  OMGWFTBBQ!!!!1!! This is so cute!!!!

This is part of an installation at Federal Station in Melbourne, Australia. Haven’t found out much about it, but I’m digging for more.

Ok.  I promise I got that out of my system.  Carry on.  I’ll post something more-motorsport related later, like scooters taking on the Dakar rally or images of the Brighton Beach Riots or something.

(Doesn’t change the fact that I want one of those as a pet. Just sayin’)
