Tuscan Scooter Rally
During my second week in Italy, I toured Tuscany by Vespa. At the start of our riding day, we would occasionally stop for some espresso. One morning as we pulled into town we came upon the start of a scooter rally. What great luck! The Italian scooterists enjoyed showing off their scooters to me. One of them spoke English, so I was able to communicate without the aid of my Rick Steves phrase book! There were lots of great scooters and Fiat cars in attendance, but I was really taken with this Lambretta.
It's a Lambretta 150 D in pristine condition that actually runs.
The group quickly threw back some espressos before heading to their next stop, but I managed to snap a couple photos.
