Thanks guys!!

Well,it was another awesome unspoiled day again today so I went out on the Vespa for some more running-in miles.
This time I went along the Welsh Coast Road and chomped a bacon batch in a retro themed bike style diner called 'Petrolheads'.....it has bikes and memorabilia inside and hosts themed bike and scooter nights.



Quite by chance,check out the manufacturere name on the window above where I parked the Vespa!!



I rode the Coast Road until I got to Abergele and looked in a big bike dealers called Woods of Abergele and then took an inland route to Llanwrst....the scenery was stunning!!



In Llanwrst there is a big triple arched stone bridge over the river.



And across the river is what I call the 'Fluffy Hotel' !!!



It`s an ancient dry stone walled restaurant/hotel covered in ivy...quite remarkable and stunning.





Across the road is a circle of standing stones rather reminicent of Avebury.



After these photos I rode along to Betws y Coed and was on a mission.
Well..what could be better...a perfect blue sky sunny day...a day off work and a new Vespa.....it HAD to be time for an ICE CREAM !!!



I managed another 150 miles on the Vespa today...only another 80 to go until the first service at 600 miles.
It`s running great and is surprisingly torquey and responsive.
Still returning about 95 mpg.
Can`t wait until it`s fully unleashed!
