It's best you didn't. Leaving a Vespa on it's side for more than a few moments = petrol/oil/battery acid all potentially going into the wrong places.

I'm glad nothing got broken.

Steel,

Always appreciate you videos and posts. Gives
me a window on your "land down under".

I see different vegetation - most of our roads have a center line.

steelbytes,

You continue to have a good eye for great camera shots.
Like many others, I really appreciate you sharing your
Down Under world.

I kind of wish others would do the same for their countries.

You really need to be out riding solo so you can stop and
capture the scenery. I mostly group ride and seem to miss
the countryside shots - mostly shots of the other riders.

Selfishly, don't stop any time soon.

Bob Copeland


Recent group ride Northern Minnesota to Lake MIlle Lacs


Lake Mille Lacs - native american name meaning " A Thousand Lakes"


This Lake has a circumference of 100 Miles - My parents had a Summer Cabin on this Lake. I spent the first 16 Summers of my youth on this huge lake.


Most common fish - great tasting white fish - named the Walleye

Yep. I do the same. When a motorcyclist comes up behind me I let him pass, then I sit on his tail just to tease him.

In that final part, in between the giant trees, I'm only waiting for the stormtroopers on their speeder bikes to fly along!

This is a great thread and you're really skilled as a photographer!

I'm with Bob and I'm going to start my own thread on how it looks like riding in Italy - even if the Vespa will not always be there.
