Vespa club
« on: April 23, 2018, 10:26:10 PM »
Had a ride up the old road to Terrigal with the Sydney Vespa Club this Sunday. Twenty-four scooters, mostly GTS with a couple of P series, Primaveras and others. Great crowd and great ride. This is where all the scooter action is thee days (although Northern Beaches crowd are doing pretty well too).

Yes, Sydney Vespa Club is on facebook. There are some pics of the run there.

I was on the blue ribbon ride, along the route taken by the olympic runners, and won an award (a Vespa mug) for being the oldest rider there. But the biggest ride by far was the Stone run. You remember the movie Stone? About Sydney motorcycle gangs. Anyway there was a commemorative run which included some of the original cast, from Berowra where I live up to Newcastle. There were 30,000 motorcycles and one Vespa.
