OK, I'm digging through some old ones. I'm about 8000 miles from my wife right now, so getting new photos won't happen.

From her 2011 fly-and-ride to pick up her new Ural.

I'm kind of new here,

someone in this thread said that you cant go to Italy without riding a vespa, i tottaly agree! This picture was taken after riding the whole day on this vespa through amazing Tuscany, where I proposed to her (and she said yes )



It was a great day,



didnt know the roads, so i attached the cheapest GPS with a rubber band to the mirror, worked excellent
