Chris: I didn't mean it to be Hollie but you're right

I like the weird shapes caused by the reflection. Oh.. and the weird person wink When I was a nipper, there was a lot of good-natured rivalry between Vespa owners and Lambretta owners; I had a Lambretta. Vespas then never looked like this, though. Now is the rivalry is between Canon and Nikon owners.
Chris: Strangely enough even although I am myself still in the first flush of youth I remember my grandparents telling me about the Lambretta/Vespa rivalry back in the olden days
There is a funny little man in this picture
Chris: What on earth are you talking about!!?

Wow! First (being a bit sleepy) I thought: what a big person in his metal -glittering coat without any head - but then I detected a sweet, little human bean, a photographer I know! Oh, a Vespa - childhood memories come up - and I recall the rivalry - lol at Alan!
Chris: Thank you Philine, the Italian "scooter wars" of the 1950s seem like very distant memories now
I was reading Cameron a book and on each page he had to find a missing person and here is a shiny Vespa with a similar mode after reading the above comments. Ye canny hide Chris gotya smile
Chris: Yes I didn't realise this was going to be a selfie when I took it Scotia
That's okay. I have a self portrait today too without a fancy motor scooter though.
Chris: Note the dent!
the lustrous appeal is very well captured, Chris.
Chris: Thank you Ayush

From the comments, this is a Vespa? I have never had the chance to ride one, but I always pictured myself in Europe riding along the busy streets smile
Chris: I think it is just that Emily

I would love to have a Vespa
Chris: I'll buy you one
Good to meet you today - it was a great turnout and wonderful to be able to faces to names.

I was a Lambretta rider - we looked down on Vespa riders smile
Chris: A belated reply Tom, delighted to meet you too.
Good model, although addition of Piaggio's new logo is terribleÂ…Your scale is very well selected!
Chris: I agree - the logo isn't very good
There appears to be a little man stuck to the front... smile
Chris: I will peel him off Larry

Looks and sounds like its name in Italian - a wasp!
Chris: I never knew that!

Very fine selfie, Chris...two classics melded.
Chris: I will take that as a compliment
