That looks like fun.

If it's worth 40.00 for a day ticket only time will tell.

The word artisan always makes me a bit suspicious.

The weather hasn't really been conducive to scootering recently.
Hopefully the rain with f*** off at some point.

I left 38C in CA on Tuesday to arrive in this miserable UK 16C yesterday. Not what I ordered!

hipsters...
the malle looks quirky, if you can just go for a look, maybe worth it for me.

Welcome back, Jim! Staying long?

I have been in Normandy catching some sweet Dakota action!

Hi Alice.

At the moment I'm booked to fly back on the 27th - but I might well have to extend my stay if the flat move doesn't happen when it was originally arranged.

Lots of packing up and stuff to do...

I'd have loved to have gone over to Normandy this year. Lucky you.

SAS
One of the best airlines in the world.

Those old Dak's must be real treasures for them.

Great pix Alice.

I just got back from Salzburg in Austria and was suitably impressed by the numbers of Vespas I saw. They probably made up half the two wheeled transport, usually ridden by young and attractive riders.

Pretty much an even split between GTSs and modern 125s of all flavours, though I did see a couple of vintage small frames and one lovely looking GS160.

They all looked clean and tidy unlike typical London transport which is impressive for a country with severe winters.

Doesn't look like Peter Fonda has any front brakes.
