Thought of you tdrake when I was in Freiburg, Germany at the weekend. A very cool young fella pulled up on this and was very pleased when I asked if I could snap it.

Sad to say, I managed to go through the whole trip without capturing any of the vintakes I saw. There were not many, but a few quite nice ones.

I had this thing of deliberately leaving my phone away when going to dinner or beach....I know, I'm old fashioned.
Ok - your wisdom forgives, perhaps, this grievous lapse.

So, no Vs after Malaga in our small town of Alhama de Granada (for a week). Granada proper is flush with maxi scoots and many are Piaggio, but few actual Vs...and I spent a bunch of days bed ridden so who knows. Only this one...

Delightful and you take mighty fine photos that catch the mood as well as the bikes.
I like your use of color and light. I like that there are still so many old shifties in everyday use, and I think you did too.

I'll assume this 2nd generation PK is a 125 and claim it as my favorite most wanna have. Hi, birdie!

Hey guys!
Let me show you my hometown! This is called the Biscaian balcony, and in sunny days like these, it's an astonishing view. Totally worth it a visit, even more by bike, because the road is full of curves and shadows. I love this route...

Hope you guys enjoy it!

This is the spot:

Aha, so here's where to watch for your voluminous pictures of Spanish Vespas. 8)

Don't know whether to castigate you for your meager success or congratulate you on your find. I'll stick with the latter...."you can get more flies...."

Aw, heck, enjoy your trip...and in case you do see another Vespa or two....

Random Portuguese scooters
Most of these shot in Lisbon or Porto. Piaggio was well-represented.

I was thinking the ratio of scooter vs. non-scooter photographs was 1:5, but more like 1:10, so there's still hope for me....

Have to say, compared to the scooters in Rome, the Portuguese scooters are nearly all clean and seemingly well-kept.

Whoa! Not expecting that!

Great time to be there. Nothing like seeing a gaggle of scooters lurking on the street. I'd gotten excited by a group of 4 in Mexico City......

It was 1977 when I was there in May....went on to see Pompeii, sitting around in perfect weather with another "Merkin I'd bumped into, reading Art Buchwald's column in the Herald Tribune, Lust in the Spring. Life was good.
