We all like pics. Let's take some more!
One rule- Your Vespa must leave the house/shed/garage/shop etc etc.
Take some pics while you're out and post em here.

Who doesn't like a Vespa in the wild anyways?

Great thread idea. My et3 is finishing up a little project this week, but I will probably get some shots later this week or early next when it's back on the road!

Tachometer and temp gauge and other fancy-pantsy monitoring gizmos. That thing is kitted out like a rocket. As pictured it would easily do 70 (on 8's!)... now its been "refined" further, maybe gets upper 70's? Maybe 80?!?

Hands down the craziest 8 inch bike I have ever ridden.

Holy cow. 70 on 10's is scary enough I don't want to imagine it on 8's. I just keep seeing a pot hole and a trail of tears behind me on the road.

But me of 20 yrs ago would have blasted that all over town! Now I'm an old wuss with kids.

okay... question... my shop door is 288ft from the gate. if I leave the shop and ride around in the driveway and along the fence does that count?

fwiw, the drive way and associated area is long and wide enough to do figure 8's

Yes, I used to camp there at Bass Lake but a bark beetle infestation killed thousands of trees around the lake so now I just hang out at Ducey's Lodge and drink beer. You can see some of the dead trees in the pic.

My last good ride was in Greece a couple of weeks ago.


We went down to the port.


First time I saw a floating dry dock.


There were two of them, side by side.

I took a spring shakedown ride a couple of weeks ago. This is down by the water in Seattle. It's been nothing but rain since then.

Putin dies and goes to hell, but after a while, he is given a day off for good behavior.

So he goes to Moscow, enters a bar, orders a drink, and asks the bartender:

-Is Crimea ours?

-Yes, it is.

-And the Donbas?

-Also ours.

-And Kyiv?

-We got that too.

Satisfied, Putin drinks, and asks:

-Thanks, how much do I owe you?

-5 euros.

Took my Stella down to the DMV to get my smallframe registered. Got an a-hole employee who wouldn't let me register it untitled with the correct proof of ownership documents from the seller. Told me I didn't have the correct documents and needed to go up to Albany to get a title for it, and wouldn't listen to me that I had the correct documents cause I registered another one with the same documents last month at the same dmv. Employees are like a lottery. Sometimes you get a difficult one, sometimes you get a happy one.

So I left and chose to go for a long ride down to the Verrazano bridge Park and will go back next week and get it registered with a less obnoxious DMV employee.

Getting real close on jetting on this Stella! It's crazy fast now and extremely clean throttle response.
