I'm beginning to think the Vespa didn't make it to rural France the way it did to Spain. Sure, lots of modern scooters, a few, very few, modern Vespas, but zilch vintage....

I blame the Deux Cheveau...and less post war poverty...and, who knows, maybe a lack of fascism...?

Amsterdam ...it's no exaggeration to say there are half a dozen nice, shiny Vespas on every street!! And two separate Vespa stores within a block of our apt. So, prolly just gonna shoot old ones; otherwise where's the challenge?

80 degrees here today, so I was too distracted by 6 ft blonde women in mini skirts too think about Vespas.

Sigh.

Good day for tiny cars, tho....

Trip is winding up, and I'm ready to get home to do more than just look at stuff. In the meantime, some of the brand new bikes within a few feet out the door.
