Thanks for the great photos. I due remember how dirty the scooters were in
Rome. After all, they actually drive them daily . Further, having lived in Italia,
I remember the mud rain. Actually soil carried aloft from North Africa that
comes down in the rain over Italia.

From what I understand, the same soil carried aloft comes down in the rain forests
of Brazil making the area very fertile. I picked this little factoid on a television
special that indicated the rain forest was suffering because of changed wind
currents not depositing the regular amount of North African soil/sand over Brazil.

Sure as Sh-- Sherlock, we have solved another case. Dirty scoots in Rome.

tdrake,

Really good photos. Thanks for sharing. Me thinks our modest
Professoria from Idaho loves Italia.

Idaho, I didn't think you could even get there from here.

I have a book called 'Custom Scooter', published in Germany in 1998. I don't speak German, but I enjoy the pictures of very modded Vespas and Lambrettas. One of my favorites is this one, "Mutant Vespa"
