“A dream you dream alone

is only a dream.

A dream you dream together

is reality”.

John Lennon

Six friends three scooters one dream.

During many a Vespa Club gathering six intrepid scooterists set themselves and their beloved Vespas the daunting task of laying the first motorized tyre tracks in Southern Africa’s largest Canyon, second largest canyon in the world – the awesome Fish River Canyon!

Please be patient when accessing the photo album pages. There are nearly 300 images and depending on your system it may take an extra few seconds to download.  But once done they move fairly quickly. It is well worth waiting for this comprehensive pictorial and word history of the 1968 Cape Town Vespa Club, Fish River Canyon Expedition.
