    I just love your photos Sergei. Easy to see how much difference there is between your Canon 1D Mark IV with a big lens and wide aperture and my little Canon G9.

    I posted a link to your blog from Scooter in the Sticks today. Thanks for letting me use one of the pictures.

    Also, I am really glad to see the Vespa still looks great with a bash on the side.....:D

    See Steve you were right, you don't need to that GS to keep up a top drawer Blog and to sooth the soul. Although I will admit it is a pretty bike. :evil

    I do love the eye you and Sergei both have.

    That is a lovely ride!!!:D

    I want one...

    I've always loved how the accessories look on the Vespas...

    I love the large wheels of my Scarabeo though as I'm a little bit rapid i'd be worried about it scrapping on a Vespa:eek1

    One day, maybe.....one day....

    Hey Serge,

    As an amateur photographer, I love that you travel with your 1D when it defies all traveling/space saving logic. :clap

    I decided to go for a ride on my Vespa and take some photos :) The weather was pretty nice, some sun and clouds, made it pretty easy to get some nice shots. I was wearing my Rev'it "Sand" Jacket and Pants and wanted to test how it will do in the rain, but unfortunatly it didn't rain as much as I wanted... I still ended up driving for 165 km and had a great time.

    Sergei,

    The photos on your blog are fabulous. Almost inspires me to ride my scoot to Photoshop World, September in Las Vegas now that I've finally broke down and bought a decent camera (Canon T1i).

    Photos I took last year riding from Houston to Breck with a compact canon don't compare but I put a few up on my blog http://cheryldwise.com

    I want a Vespa after looking at your pictures. Yes, I know a Vespa is fun. But I already have two bikes.

    Awesome photography! :thumb
