Our Italian friends can call this colour whatever they like, but fact is: it's cherry!

In the UK it went by the name Vintage Red, which differentiated it from Dragon Red

some old MV Vintage Red chatter..

Vintage Red GTS's - why are they rarer?

Mopmop,

Great photos and I love the color of your Vespa. Black seat good choice.
Send more photos if you can. Enjoy viewing your Netherlands. Actually,
the rural stuff looks like Minnesota. Obviously, no windmills - or for that
matter no structure in the State from 1720.

Let's hope that dry weather comes to Wale's soon I got soaked on the scooter earlier and very high winds too over here.

Mopmop,

You are out cruising the dream. I like that seat cover. You don't seem to have a travel bag strapped behind you. Does everything fit in the new back Givi?
On extended rides, I have my waterproof travel bag bungeed on the seat behind me.

I stand corrected, I can see a bag on the snow photo.

Hi Bob,

Indeed, I do have a travel bag strapped behind me. The picture without it was a day trip from where I was staying the night.

I feel the travel bag is not only necessary to put my clothes in (the Givi is filled up with camping equipment like the tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat and rain gear and the pet carrier houses all the tools and cooking gear), but the bag also gives me a lot of comfort: it's a perfect back rest on long riding days.

And also indeed, I was out cruising the dream! It's already two months ago, but next year I'm hopefully making another 1 to 2 week solo trip. Maybe the Alps, maybe Scotland or somewhere else.

And one day... just one day... I hope to put the Vespa in a crate and send it to the US. And ride it there. Now that would be a dream come true.

Mopmop,

I would love to have you ride in the USA. Problem, just to much geography.
I know Bill Dog blistered across it coast to coast at 75 miles per hour in four days covering close to 4000 miles. That is not the pace or backroads I enjoy.

Heck, the State of Texas alone is the size of France. If you came, I would pick out one Region of the country to cover. But, each to their own.

Personally, I think you are in Scooter Touring Heaven in Europe. You have it all in attainable distances. Mountains, Valleys, Oceans, with unbelievable scenic vistas and a bunch of super historical structures. Hey, lots of scenic spots in the USA - but you got it all.

Keep those photos coming of your travels. I appreciate them.

Bob,

I understand the USA is huuuuuge.

At the same time, that's part of the attraction for me. I've always wanted to go coast to coast in the USA. But while taking the time to enjoy the scenery, meet the people and feel like really being there.

Real life has gotten in the way until now, though. Which was a blessing as well, but now that the kids have a gotten lives of their own, the window of opportunity may slowly be opening up.

We'll see what the future holds!
