Do you have a photo that shows more of the "head on" angle? Is it yours? If so, wow, a new vintange and a new modern, in one month, I feel your pain. Lucky girl.

Wow, very nice, I haven't seen one painted quite like that before. The pinstripes are very effective. The GTV seat is awesome.

I linked the pictures up for you Tanya.

Hey ... is that a base Silver GTS? With the exposure it's hard to tell if the major color is white or the stock Silver color.

the rally is mine....this one is mine only long enough for the Vegas Rally. Unless it's "given" to me as a demo....which might happen.
but what will I do with 3 scoots?!

Sweeeet! The 2 tone is just awesome. I really like the vintage racing green, very well done, Beale.

My thoughts exactly. One look at the seat and I'm already wondering where to place my order.

The seats fit....the GTV/GT60 are the same frame as the GTS. Vespa does love interchangeable parts where they can do it.
The seats, however, are insanely expensive. $800 cost
So as you can see, I'm really hoping it will win the custom section at the High Rollers rally.

Awesome looking scoot. But if its only yours until the end of the Vegas Rally why is your name painted on it :?

Saw you and the bike in Vegas, sorry I did not say "hey." The bike looked even better in person.

Did you win anything in the show, I left before the awards?

Personally, I always thought you had great taste with your Cobalt Blue ET4. Great minds think alike.

Actually, I just picked up a GTS last week. Now I've got three! I hope you and the rest of the SF Scooter Grlls come down for Classico Moto Italia 11. We'll have a new day ride and an evening dinner event besides the usual shenanigans.

Um, acutally, I might not be a scooter girl anymore. I'm not really allowed to talk about it here though.
but yes, I love my ET4 and will never get rid of her! This one, while still beautiful, is more for eyecandy. GTS's cant lane split like an ET can!

Sweet color scheme! I showed this post to my wife who has a silver GT (with a couple of scrapes post driveway tipover) and it got her to thinking about new paint.

Oh, and then she saw your knitting pix on Flickr and the deal was sealed. Is there something about knitting and scooters that go together?

Then this is a personal invitation to you to come down for Classico.

wow VERY nice. I like the two tone look, unfortunatley most vespas are just one color. I like the retro look on a new vespa too, its... neoretrotastic! XD
