Ride. Rest. Repeat.

Vespa Attack!

Last Saturday, December 3, 2005, the Vespa Attack was successfully held in various places in Manila. The brainchild of Fil-American hardcore scooterist from Chicago, Jordan Cinco, this Vespa Rally sought to bring together the various scooter groups in the city for a “Coup D’ Etat” of sorts.

Around 40 scooters attended this initial staging of the Vespa Rally. We certainly hope that there will be more to come in the coming years.

Again, my hat’s off to Jordan for bringing the community together for this event.

    Really nice to hear that scooterists getting together in the Philippines I was a UK scooterist attending Rallys from 1974 until 1995 It will never leave me as will the love for Northern soul music which for many of us in the UK go hand in hand both are in my blood forever but now I live in Philippines have little chance for ever.
