I’ve been seriously behind on posting stuff for Vespinoy recently and I sincerely aplogize to my legions and legions (around 3) of readers. Workload has eased up as the Christmas break approaches, so I may be able to start blogging again about Vespa stuff and other related and not so related matters haha.
Vespa Attack 3 was an enormous success, this years’ edition was, by far, the most attended event. Attendance broke 100 on both the VCOP led Swap Meet held at the Speedzone in The Fort, Taguig and at the Chill Out Night in Hot Rocks Libis hosted by Euroscoot.
A lot of photos and stories can be seen in the thread in the forum here.
John Rana also has a blow-by-blow account of the happenings.
I was unable to attend the Vespa Attack 3 because our company scheduled our annual vacation nearly a month late and coincided perfectly with VA3. Tough luck but I was keeping abreast of what was happening through phone calls to some of my fellow Euroscoot officers. Needless to say, I was really jealous. Argh!
“Granted, Vespa aficionados tend to be older, better educated and financially better off than the typical underbone enthusiast (the modern Vespas costing many times more than the average Japanese or Chinese scoot).”
This got the underbone riders reason to lash out at the writer, John and Vespas in general. While I see some justification in their indignation, the blame, in my opinion, falls squarely on the writer of the article since it was HIS point of view which was presented and not the point of view of John who merely reported about the article(s) on his blog and MCP and most specially not the Vespa community who has done it’s best to remain anonymous and prefer to do their own stuff quietly.
I guess this is it for the mean time. I’ll be trying to post new stuff regularly.
