Call it cliché, but a picture is indeed worth a thousand words. Now get ready to immense on a post that could be as lengthy as an epic novel with these colorful images taken from the 3-day event called the Vespa Attack III. See the rest of the photographs.

Day I: Meet & Greet Party
venue: Gweilos (Makati)
count: 35 scoots + 3 other scoots came by when the group left already

It was indeed one successful event. Congratulations to Euroscoot, Scoot66, and Vespinoy, VCOP for joining hands and successfully mounting the 3rd Vespa Attack and to Jordan Cinco (here’s the reason for the special mention) for bringing things together for the third time!

Next year ulit!
