    Thank you! Yes Airdrie is after Airdrie in Scotland :)

    Yes red bottles are for extra fuel. I like knowing that I will not be stuck somewhere with out gas :)

    Thank you,
    Sergei

    Got a few looks when I was trying to attach it to my bike, but I got it home safe :) Not the biggest thing I transported but so far the longest.

    As you can see, I have a new addition to my Vespa winter driving... tall windscreen :) Today was a first time I rode with it on... good experience, stops cold wind very well, but on a bad side looks like I lost 15 km/h of the top speed of my Vespa, but I guess I don't really need to drive fast in the winter anyway :) I didn't take many photographs on my ride today because as you can see we have a bunch of snow on the side of our roads and finding a spot to stop for a photo could be difficult.

    Sergei, do you actually ride the scooter in the winter?

    It's gonna be my first winter on my scooter here in southern Ontario and I heard it isn't too safe. How do you do it?

    Thank you very much!

    Yes I do ride all year around.. Here in Calgary we have winds when it all warms up and melts snow... I really don't care if its cold and rode in -15C before.. all I care is if there is snow or ice on actual roads. In the winter you have to think your ride through, visualize what toads you will take and plan time when you will get home because in the evening it gets icy.

    I try not to be stupid but its just too hard not to ride... I miss it too much :)

    Tucano Urbano makes great clothes that keep me warm so the temperature usually not a factor in my riding, just dress warm :)

    Thank you,
    Sergei
