I first saw Nicola stunt riding his Vespa PX scooter at World Vespa Days 2006 in Torino. On the first day he was riding around a race track on the back wheel, followed by another lap sat facing the wrong way around on his Vespa.
I had a brief chat with him over the weekend, although my minimal Italian and his little English meant I think we got the gist of each other, rather than the facts. I’m sure it was a standard PX150 he was riding though.
Back home I tracked him down on YouTube, performing wheelies over numerous kilometres to make you more than jealous – and I’m pleased to see he’s continued to perfect his skills ans wow audiemces all over Italy, both in the bike and scooter world. Keep it up Nicola – literally!
