Some friends came out to our place to shoot their daughter's senior photos and the little guy made it into a few. (I realize this is not an example of a Vespa that left home, but I did take it for a ride earlier today.)

We have some great vintage liquor store signs here. There's one for a drive through liquor store not too far from me that's just begging for success photos, too.

That's a decent ride from TMI to Holtwood. A picture of a coal power plan and a 2 stroke scooter? Be careful, the woke police look for just that kind of treason!!

It's November and you are STILL having lunch outside on the patio in Minnesota???
Or did they somehow allow you to park inside? I'm confused...

Nevertheless, wherever - nice picture!

It's been very warm of late round these parts. Going to be 75 next week here in Philly. It was 41° on Friday. Which is normal.

Ha! Thank you, V oodoo. Yes, I WAS lunching al fresco with my scooter in November. So weird for Minnesota, but very much appreciated. I'm enjoying every extra riding moment.


This is Blue's neighbor buddy. Whom I'd adopt in a heartbeat if available.

Well she left the house! Didn't make it far but I did ride her around the house to park in the sun…


Made it this far then noticed I have no working lights for some reason.

Out for tequila essential provisions at the government store. It took a year plus but I am pretty proud of having an officially registered, inspected and titled scoot in the PRP (Peoples Republic of Pennsylvania).

I've got sharkhide which is a bare metal protectant

Lasts much longer than linseed oil.

74° today instead of the typical 45-50° so I grounded the regulator and put the headlight back in. Good to go. Lights work now. So went out to enjoy the warmth and leaves and joy. Almost forgot to stop and take a pic!


Gorgeous day to sneak away.

Forgot snacks for my daughter at school so had to run them back over, it's so nice out I had to take Bear for the trip.

Feels a little weird riding a 2 stroke into an environmental education center but here we are!


This is the "road" to my daughters school…
