A Transcontinental Vespa Adventure in the Making
Scooter adventurer Alexander Eischeid is taking on North and South America in a big way. His plan is to ride what appears to be a Vespa PX-150 from Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada all the way to Argentina and the southern tip of South America. To say this is ambitious is an understatement, but Eischeild is no stranger to long miles on his scooter. According to his site, he’s put two wheels on pavement in Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, England, Wales, Ireland, Scottland, Switzerland, Italy, France, Monaco, Corsica, Greece and Turkey. More than 62,000 Km (38,525 miles) on his scooter so far.
Eischeild is making great progress on his adventure — currently riding his way through Mexico. You can follow his adventures on his website, where he says it may take as much as 18 months to complete.
