What a beautiful landscape in which to ride.

I continue to find satisfaction in the familiar roads and landscapes in which I get to ride. Central Pennsylvania is strewn with dirt and gravel roads just crying out for me to visit on my GTS.


A pause during a ride in a local forest.

Wow another great shot. I enjoy shots like that that just gives me the urge to go out and ride.

I might have to stop using my phone and drag the SLR around.

I seldom take a DSLR with me while riding. Just too big and delicate. Almost everything I shoot is with a point-and-shoot camera. I'm currently using the Canon G15. It's perfect for what I do.

I've seen work done with the iPhone and it can be outstanding. But I like having a zoom lens to manipulate the composition more.

Not a scooter but in the sticks anyway
My baby brother restored some of our teenage toys and brought one to our summer cabin. Do you remember these 70 - 80ies Honda Monkeys and the teenage thrill ? Been cruising around this lake the whole weekend. Unable to quit...

The summer heat has removed most of the fog potential from my rides. But as the fall approaches, I hope to find more magical light.

Riding on foggy mornings is sublime. Even on gravel.

Autumn in the sticks. A fine time to ride.

After two years of little snow, we've already had almost two feet of the white stuff. I still ride in the winter, in the cold, but don't intentionally go out anymore when it's snowing. At least I haven't this year. Yet.

So after the first big snow and the roads cleared I took a ride. Without the Termoscud apron or handlebar muffs installed it was cold. And I haven't put the snow tires on yet.

Didn't take much snow and cold (25F) to make things interesting.


My 2006 GTS 250ie still ticking into it's 14th winter.

Riding in the nearby mountains of central Pennsylvania. Trying to get my head back into the swing of things as the pandemic keeps the area in a high risk of infection.

It's always nice to see your silver scooter in the gallery Steve. I hope the ride was invigorating and helped blow away the cerebral cobwebs. Here in Cyprus we are about to have a 2-week 'circuit-breaker' lock-down starting tomorrow to try to stem the rise in infections. Looks like my Silver Lady will have to have to remain in the garage a little longer.

Sorry to hear you are going back into lockdown. I hope things stabilize soon. Our infection rate is still high here but restrictions are being lifted. I'm not sure how decisions are being made so I still am careful.

The weather is continually improving so I am riding more. And making more pictures!

A scene from a late day ride.


The Vespa GTS is out standing in the field.
