Great London Rideout !

Spent the best part of the day in London Town today on VVC Journal duty; attempting to update and freshen up the Club Shop page..

Friends and fellow Veteran Vespa Club members, Warren & Hayley Jopson, had gamely agreed to model some club merchandise for me while I took some photos. We agreed to meet up in Broadway Market and after a catch up over a cup of tea got down to business.

After spending an hour or so getting some hopefully decent shots and working up an appetite, we left Hackney for Soho in search of lunch. Warren had come from home in Essex on his 1951 aluminium panelled, restored American Allstate, with Hayley accompanying him on her original paint Mk2 GS160. I was on my 'old faithful' Motovespa - the combined duck egg blue, white and orange made for a lovely combo..!

As always, was great fun riding through the city centre on classic vespas - the best way to get around London and nicer still in the warm October sun. On Warren & Hayley's recommendation we came to a stop in Dean Street at Prix Fixe a great litte French style bistrot serving good food at very reasonable prices, £10.90 for two courses, not bad at all for Soho..

Warren was keen to get home before dark, as it was by now 4pm and the lights on his Allstate were not exactly illuminating. We said our farewells and needing a coffee to finish off lunch, I called by Kaffeine in Great Titchfield Street..

...before leaving behind 'the big smoke' for Hertfordshire's green and pleasant lanes basking in the still warm lowering sun..







Cheers to Warren & Hayley for a great day and watch this space for the upcoming VVC Journal...
