Smallstate Rally 2010


There's a subculture of vintage motor scooter enthusiasts spread throughout the US and beyond that maintain and ride vintage Vespa and Lambretta scooters from the 1950's, 60's, 70's and 80's.  These two-stroke bikes have small displacement, one cylinder motors, that pack a punch and in addition to being beautiful machines, they're a lot of fun to ride.  These shots were taken at an invitation-only scooter rally in the woods of Rhode Island.  Folks from as far South as DC and as far North as Maine and a lot in between came for a weekend of camping, riding and of course the Gymcana - a sort of improvised obstacle course on scooters.
