Bought my 300GTS 2014, with 7k miles on it 2 weeks ago and although ive got a new Africa Twin and a Hayabusa in the garage the scooter is so easy to just jump on and go, ive used it every chance ive had since I collected it

I saw a 2018 300GTS Super Sport in white with 1170 miles on it yesterday with Akrapovic System performance Panel air filter, short screen, ABS Traction control in what looks like unused condition so I bought that as well with the view of taking everything ive bought for the first one off and fitting it to the new bike then selling the 2014 black one
the bits ive removed and fitted to the new bike so far

Rear Rack
Top Box
HID Headlight
Shortie Adjustable levers
Euro spec Front and rear Indicators
LED Back Light
RAM X mount
Chequered rear mud flap
Optimate charging lead
Double USB Connector in dash side Pod
and fitted a full Abarth Sticker Kit
Alarm is on order

Things to get
Cntr Floor Rack
13" Wheels and tyres
Heated Grips
Rubber floor mat

so if anyone's got any of the above bits or anything interesting Im buying

Looking forward to riding it when it stops bloody raining

Well, you don't let any grass grow under your boots . One thing, think twice before adding the floor mat. They are infamous for catching small rocks underneath and chewing up the paint. The raised rubber strips on the OEM setup are a good design and work just fine.

Nice move!
I just did the same thing myself.

Less stuff to transfer and I still have the Stebel horn to do.

I took a good look at the bike and I am confident I will fit it in right behind the horn cover, as long as I split off the compressor and tuck that in under the left kneepad.

Safe and happy travels!

Nice little collection you got going there.
I owned a hayabusa some years ago and absolutely loved it. Can’t for the life of me remember why I sold it now.
The brace of Vespas is very cool though.
I got soaked riding home from work yesterday, this weather is shocking at the moment.
Essex and the rest of the Uk 🇬🇧 is not having a good start to the summer.
Congrats on your purchases though, from Not very sunny Romford.

Totally agree on skipping the rubber floor mat. Had one on my previous 300 and it did “sand” down the paint. Just not worth it. My 2018 titanium flat SS is without said mat. 😀

If you ride a lot in all sorts of weather, and park outside in the rain, the floor mat is a good idea. If you only ride in good weather, it's not necessary. One of the things it does is keep a lot of water from getting down under the floor to the metal body. Another thing it does is protect the paint from all the stuff you can get on your shoes. Since it doesn't rain a lot in England, you're probably fine without it.
