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.


The Gang is growing

First I’d like to give a shout out to our friends in San Diego attending Amerivespa. Those of us not there, are jealous. Trust me. We’ve seen a few pics trickling in but I’m sure there will be many more once the riders from across the country meet their beachy destination.

Next I want to brag, just a little. Our group on Facebook is growing. We have a modest 12 members, several are in other states and others lack scooters. But if you’re enthusiastic about scoots and scoot culture, we’d love to share some space with you. If you live in Arizona and want to get some ride time in, we are looking to set that up soon as well. Nevermind it’s 118 outside. 🙂

Anyway, I’m really excited that our fledgling operation is getting some feedback now. We have tons of readers on this blog, which I couldn’t be more grateful for and our virtual gang is growing. So, thank you.

I’ve been kicking around the idea of getting some gang swag, what do you think as our readers? Yay or nay? It would take a tiny bit to get that all set up, but thinking t-shirts, patches and stuff… Any responses would be most helpful.

Again, thank you! You’ve all been great with comments and sharing information. Keep it up!

Basics of an LML motor… Super handy!

So, as I was surfing the youtube, I came across this lovely Minnesotan. I’m kinda partial to those from the frosty white north (hi family!) and this guy is really easy to follow. Not too much info, not too “know it all”, but instead the right speed of slow for me. Must be my MN showing.

Anyway, here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0mBF-ZWVu4
