Lovely detail here from Philip Feilhaber of this Vespa GL

Thistledown by vespamore photography

Got back on Sunday from a great week's camping at Thistledown Farm in Nympsfield, Gloucestershire. No vespas there but did see an 'ape' or two - ape (pronounced aah-paay) being Piaggio's 3-wheeled utility vehicle & the Italian word for bee.

Perfect weather for camping; warm with some cloud cover & very little rain.

I wasn't organised enough to take my film camera & fancied a break anyway but couldn't resist taking a couple of shots on our holiday digital camera - more images here including some nice shots of bees collecting pollen from thistles...

If you like camping, check out Thistledown; it's a really nice secluded campsite with tonnes of space & is No.1 in the third edition of Cool Camping England

Now that they have returned from the Mormoiron rally & after taking in some beautiful roads on the way there & back, you can now see the full set of fotos taken during the trip by SIP director Ralf Jodl on SIP Scootershop's Flickr stream - here

Not only are SIP the best guys around for classic (& now modern) vespa parts, they are all into scooters, owning & riding them too.

The thing I really like is the passion & commitment they show, which comes across in the presentation & photography in their catalogues, website & service too, which you'll know if you have bought parts from them.
