Compilation of my year round riding pictures

I recently compiled some of my favorite pictures from my blog so that people interested in seeing them in one place could. It's a Vespa and it goes in the heat, the rain, the cold, the snow, and through cornfields and dirt.

If you want to see them they are posted on VESPA PHOTOGRAPHS. Think of it as a small but more elegant BMW 1200GS Adventure......

Goes to show that it's not what you ride, but the spirit of the rider.

Nice job!

My desire to ride has sort of surprised me along with the obsessive desire to make photographs of the Vespa. Hopefully I'll eventually turn the camera towards other subjects too....

I sometimes wonder if I would feel the same about riding astride someting else. Each machine has it's own character and I suppose for each of us who becomes an obsessive rider we find our own right machine connection. For me I happened to unexpectedly connect with the Vespa.

Thanks for the kind words from everyone about the pictures!
