Serious Bike Riding in London & Paris
Just enjoyed our 25th wedding anniversary by celebrating in London and Paris. Traffic was incredible in both cities and with the cost of petrol at over $8 per gallon in London, it is not surprising that motorcycles and scooters were everywhere. There wasn't a corner in London or Paris that didn't have scores of parked bikes. Not only small Vespas and Chinese scooters but sport bikes and Harleys. It seemed that almost 1 in 5 were Piaggio MP3s but I never once saw my particular model, the MP3 500 (in Europe it's called the Gilera Fuoco 500ie).
I like riding my bike, but the traffic there was crazy! I'll wait to get back to my quiet country rides.
