Seize, no. Knee, yes. And it was an on-ramp.

Just got going too fast for the S-turn and it was that or hit the side of a cliff. Life is trade-offs.

It was raining so hard here today that I actually had to drive my wife's car to go to the doctor.

The one thing I do miss about the west coast are the wonderful ocean overlooks.
Looks like you had a perfect riding day.

Anytime you make it out to the Central Oregon Coast Chandler, you know you've got a scooter to ride on this very road the pictures came from. And, even a place to sleep!

And Thanks ExMayor - it sure was a beautiful day. I pulled over many times, but only took a few pictures...

That's awesome Patrick. Were you on your way to the Cannonball Run that started in Pacific City?

I rode my 2002 Bajaj - 4T up there to watch everyone start.


Starting line for the Cannonball Run, Pacific City. My Bajaj is the white one...

A bit different than Depoe Bay, but I see the similarities. The stonework is top notch on all the highways along the coast here in Oregon.

And yes, been to Astoria, many times, and all points in between

I meant that opsclunkthud's photo looks like Depoe Bay, and as an aside, was asking if he'd been to Astoria.

Sorry, sometimes I articulate poorly on the internet.

Do much riding on the 101? Always wanted to ride from Newport up through Cannon beach to Astoria.

My photo was in the exact same spot as qascooter. It was on the ride up to Amerivespa in Seattle in 2007. Rounded the corner, saw the view, made a quick u-turn, got the picture and continued north.

I passed through Astoria on the way home from Amerivespa in 2017 but didn't get to spend any proper time there.

If you ever get a chance, check it out. Astoria is gorgeous, and the ride across the mouth of the Columbia up through Ilwaco to Cape Disappointment is amazing.

Just the loveliest winter day in Auckland. Other's sign rides inspired me to go and capture my favourite. It looks like it's been touched up which makes me feel good. It should remain for always and ever. Hopefully not cropped… it was hard to get away from cars.

What a great ride and nice weather too... Or was it almost too hot some of the time? My nephew skis in that area at Seli(?), so up in the mountains it's probably cooler there now.

Curious:
Which bike did you ride, blue P200?
And roughly how much gas did you burn?
So five fast Ps and three modern bikes... Did anybody break down?

Weather was cooler today cause of yesterday's thunderstorms from the weather system 'Petar' that passed through. Max temp was around 30°C and cooler up in the mountains. Seli is near Veria, we went to Skra, close to the Yugoslavian borders. There's some really nice waterfalls and cold waters where people bathe…

Yes, I was riding my blue P. Every P/PX of the bunch, except the black one, has a Malossi kit on…

No breakdowns, only a broken CHT ring on the green one which we replaced on the spot…

Few days ago I met a guy who told me that in the past he was Harley rider but now he not ride any two wheels for 7 years. And near 10 years ago when he worked in Africa he ride once on the PX 125 his english friend and was very tempted by it.

He turns out a really good man so I offered him a Vespa ride with us. I told that I can give him my PK. He said that he will be with wife.
I warn that the scooter is not very comfy for two but there was already nothing that can stopping this couple

Today was very hot day(almost 40ºC/104º F) so we decided to run out from the city to the pine forest with river nearby.

It was great 70 km / 44 miles ride.

My new friends were completely satisfied and I was pleased to see the genuine joy on their faces.

I may be flouting the rules since yesterday's evening ride was on a 4T bike... We're trying to make the most of the dwindling days in August before our daughter leaves to start college out of state.

She asked to take a pre-dinner rip on our '74 flat twin, on which we crossed over the train tracks and contemplated future destinations unknown. Some trainspotter left their HD-branded Budweiser can on the overpass here, almost like a photo prop.

I'm pretty sure that, on this Amtrak line, one could take a ride all the way from NYC to Montreal.

I may be flouting the rules since yesterday's evening ride was on a 4T bike... We're trying to make the most of the dwindling days in August before our daughter leaves to start college out of state.

She asked to take a pre-dinner rip on our '74 flat twin, on which we crossed over the train tracks and contemplated future destinations unknown. Some trainspotter left their HD-branded Budweiser can on the overpass here, almost like a photo prop.

I'm pretty sure that, on this Amtrak line, one could take a ride all the way from NYC to Montreal.
Nice bike! and I am sure those are going to be unforgettable moments with her pop! Send me the pic and I will do away with the can!

Wow, so many old Euro memories you've stirred for me, including the Mini I loved and wish I still had . The Morgan PlusFour is another favorite of mine I rarely see...

Thanks for all the great pics and the insight into Ukrainian scene!



Mmmm... Wartburg? I am somewhat attracted somehow.
I can even remember when curb feelers were a thing, but four?!

Some great pics in there! Success we don't have them over here, I especially like the old Soviet cars. Very cool. And that pink Cadillac was something else!

It is ZAZ 968. NSU Prinz was used as prototype for it.
4 curb feelers? I think it is just the owner's whim.

That Caddy, Camaro, Cobra replica and Morgans was at the top of attention. It was really hard to get more or less good photos of it.

This scooter finally left the house!


Getting gussied up with a new Piaggio decal to celebrate getting registered at the DMV.


Nowhere special but this neighbor's riotous front landscaping.

And great summer Saturday weather, how can you NOT go for a ride? I haven't taken the zippy AllState out for a good thrashing in a while, so I thought I'd give it a shot and try to overcome my Breakdown Anxiety over making it back home . Lots of WOT & old bike performed magnificently!

I live on the edge of a small suburban forest w/ gullies, streams and wetlands. I grew up around here and even caught huge bullfrogs in these small streams as a kid. It was once being 'developed' until the city bought it years ago and started slowly restoring things to their natural state. Raccoons, coyotes and even occasional deer are seen around here.


Named after a local Go Getter.


Map & entrance, I went in a ways but pushing only so I wouldn't get yelled at, though there are no signs that actually PROHIBITED motorized vehicles. Just Closed After Dark and Don't Feed the Animals, No Booze, No Fireworks etc.


I rolled in for a look at these timeline ariel pics of the park since 1961.
