Visiting L.A. has its perks!

There are many MVers I would love to meet. It's no small task since there are so very few of them where I live.

So far, going out of my way today to meet David (SDG) at Vespa Sherman Oaks, I've scored two MVers. Meeting David was a big deal for me. I got a 5 cent tour of the shop, some Vespa swag (thank you David), and the opportunity to chat with a fellow addict.

The only regret I have is that the Vespa that Bill Dog rode coast to coast in the 2012 scooter Cannonball rally, that I was hoping to be able to snap a picture of, was off-site due to a space shortage in the shop.

Thank you David for being such a gracious host.

Cool. Sounds like you had a great time.

I bet the weather is better than back home too.

The weather should be much better down there, or so I have heard. Nice to meet other Vespa addicts!

Trobairitz, Sonja, the weather was amazing. We were staying in Redondo Beach, about 10 minutes west from the beach. The days were always sunny with blue skies, once the sun burned off the ocean mist. The ocean breeze was cool, the sun was warm, it was like summer with air conditioning. Just wonderful. We drove up the coast to Santa Barbara. I would love to ride that road, just spectacular.
