A Vespa Story from Fellow Israeli Blogger, Treppenwitz.

I’ve sent a shout out to a fellow Israeli Blogger Treppenwitz, who knows the joys of getting around Israel on a vespa, a while back here on the blog. In that post, I mentioned a little video he uploaded of his driving through J-lem’s Old City on the ‘pa. Today I wanted to share a very lovely story of his about kindness, women on scooters, and what happens to cute outfits worn on vespas in reality. I’ve included his story below and be sure to check out his blog!

This photo comes from Treppenzitz’s blog and was taken this past March when a great surprise happened in the country: SNOW!

Being someone’s knight in shining armor: 

I had a meeting in Tel Aviv not too long ago, and to get there, I had to take my scooter onto a fast moving highway called the ‘Ayalon’.

At one point I found myself following a nicely dressed young woman riding a little retro looking scooter.  Continue reading

I just wanted to write a little note to those of you who have followed this blog or stop by every now and then,

Thank you for reading!!

And to spread the love, I found another blog that recently started up this month that is all about the safe scooting. The writer has tons of motorcycle and scooter experience (33 year riding and 20 years in motorcycle training), so his articles [so far] have been packed with great safety information. One of his post focuses on the psychology of visibility(the X-Motion and Z-Motion). He explains why people are always pulling out in front of you and how to change your riding habits so you are more likely to be seen. The information he provides is invaluable, if you want to drive safely. And you do!

So check out his blog,
