Re: Motorbikes and scooters from Italy

Hey Donna,
Fab photos and report.

The cops in Italy like scooters too ......... here's a couple of snaps I took in 08 when I strayed over the border whilst we were on holiday in Antibes........






Take care and say hi to Gary.

Steve

Re: Motorbikes and scooters from Italy

Great share! Thank you...

Scooters are great, and largely underrated here in the US. 3 of them in my garage right now....haven't been "scooterless" since 1996.

Great shots, thanks again.

Re: Motorbikes and scooters from Italy

Great photos and very interesting scooters, the one with the canopy and the police scooters with the 3 foot windscreens especially.

I guess since American cops are riding T3's and Segways, there's not much to say about this...

Not wishing to steak anyone's thunder, but here's a few more ...........these were all taken in Antibes in the South of France in 09..............







And my personal favourite bike photo, taken in the small village of Biot just a few kilometres north of Antibes in 2008...........



God I miss riding!!

Re: Motorbikes and scooters from Italy

I love the mini bike in the next to last pic, Steve!!



Hey Donna, those are some great shots! You really have an eye for composition! It looks
like a very interesting corner of the world to visit. It'd definately be fun on a small bike!
I enjoyed your photos very much!!
