Thats just one nice scooter. The pictures remind me of the winter I spent in Colorado once.

You started out right by going with a Vespa!

On my last trip to Jasper, AB I had some problems with my helmet. I discovered that it wasn't the right fit for me and on the long ride it had some pretty bad pressure points, to the point where I had to stop just to take my helmet off :( Because I do ride very often, and hopefully will go for some more long distance trips... A couple of days ago I had to go and buy a new helmet. As long as I remember, I always heard that Arai helmets are the safest and the most comfortable in the world, so I bought an Arai RX-Q. It doesn't have as many features as my last helmet did, but so far its very comfortable!

And if you ever take to your Vespa with a rocket-pack down at the drags, you'll also be pleased to know they are aerodynamically stable at over 130+........

Thanks for the pics updates man.

I can't believe I leave you guys alone for a couple of days, and these pictures nearly fall off the bottom of the page.

Great pics Sergei.

I have been riding my Vespa lots, but being busy with other photo shoots, I didn't have time to take any photos on my scooter lately. Today I decided to take my scooter out for a ride with my friend and to take some photos :)



Just before our ride we noticed that my tire's status changed from being "bold" to "completely bold" :) I'm guessing it is never a good thing when you can see the metal "wires" in your tire... oh well, it lasted for 9,850 km. I had to pick up a couple of tires that I had at home and people at Walt Healy Motorsports were very kind to change them for me.

Earlier this morning I went for a ride on my Vespa. I didn't have anything specific in mind, just wanted to take some photos of my bike with some fall colours. Here is what I ended up with :)

I had an hour to spend while waiting for my photo to be printed, so I decided to go and explore some new roads. I ended up having a great ride :)

My first snow ride of the year. I woke up this morning and saw that it was snowing, so my first thought was "I should go for a ride" :)

Great pictures. You are tougher than I am. I went riding this morning in the high 40s and that was cold enough for me.
