It's best you didn't. Leaving a Vespa on it's side for more than a few moments = petrol/oil/battery acid all potentially going into the wrong places.

I'm glad nothing got broken.

steelbytes,

You continue to have a good eye for great camera shots.
Like many others, I really appreciate you sharing your
Down Under world.

I kind of wish others would do the same for their countries.

You really need to be out riding solo so you can stop and
capture the scenery. I mostly group ride and seem to miss
the countryside shots - mostly shots of the other riders.

Selfishly, don't stop any time soon.

Bob Copeland


Recent group ride Northern Minnesota to Lake MIlle Lacs


Lake Mille Lacs - native american name meaning " A Thousand Lakes"


This Lake has a circumference of 100 Miles - My parents had a Summer Cabin on this Lake. I spent the first 16 Summers of my youth on this huge lake.


Most common fish - great tasting white fish - named the Walleye

incase anyone wonders what happens to my tires with this sorta riding, here's my rear after 7,900km (4910mi). I normally change at about 7,500km (4660mi)
I ride hard and get about the same but the compound in CitiGrip2 runs about 1500mi further and would do well in the wet conditions you occasionally face.
Maybe for your rides a scooter with larger wheels would be better. See Piaggio Beverly with 16" front and 14" rear. My son and I have one.
