>Lazy blogging


OK – I put my hands up, this is a bit slack. But It could hardly be a Vespa-biased blog without a clip from Roman Holiday, could it? The bit where the scooter runs away with Audrey Hepburn must have happened to almost all Vespisti on their first attempt at riding – myself included. On every visit to Rome I’ve promised myself that I’d hire a scooter, just to ride round the Vittorio Emanuele memorial but the traffic looks so terrifying that I always chicken out. Ending up under a Fiat 126 isn’t much fun if you’re solo, let alone with a passenger. It’s doubtful we’d look as cool as these two anyway, despite Gregory Peck’s random pointing. Watch out for the police in their WW2 surplus jeep. I wonder where that 1953 faro basso is now?
