Vespa PX and LXV. Old and New
Two scooters in the same car park? Now, all we need are a few more scooters and hey presto! we've got ourselves a scooter club. Hah!
Having looked at the LXV more closely over the past few days, I have come to the conclusion that I actually like the thing, for my wife or daughter. Vespa's V (vintage) series have always come across as type of poseur-ish Vespa but you have to admit, they did put some thought and effort into the thing. In the end, I think I'll always like a scooter as long as its made by the same crowd at Pontodera. Seriously, even the fugly ET2 and ET4 is starting to look nice (after a few much needed modifications) these days.
Anyway, this time last week, I was absolutely convinced that Old Man Winter was making an early appearance this year. I rooted around the house for the padded lining to my jacket and had my winter gloves at the ready in my Vespa's glovebox.
Well, as I write this, I have found no need for either of them this week. And, if the weather stays this good, I might actually decide to call the barbeque back into action this weekend. OK, I've ruined it now haven't I? There will probably be snow and hurricane-type weather as soon as I click on the Publish Post button...
