Hi All,
New to scooters. "Gina" my 2018 GTS 300 is my first. Road several brands of motorcycles over the last 50 years but I must say that riding the Vespa is at least as much fun. I also find I ride a lot more. It's so easy to slip on a helmet and ride to the store/library etc than to ride a big H/D for a gallon of milk.

I probably will be "lurking" more than contributing but it's nice to be around like minded riders.

Regards from New Jersey
Marty

Welcome to MV!

If you're like many of us, you'll be trying to figure out how to get a weeks' worth of groceries on your scooter. Either that or going out for milk far too often....

Frost Bite Falls Minnesota Welcomes You
NJ_Marty,

Have you added any accessories on that fine GTS300? I found the front
and rear rack was helpful going to the store.

Thanks for the welcoming messages.
I did add the rear rack and the mid height windscreen. My favorite addition was the led & brake light flasher from scooterwest.

Welcome to MV, Marty!

I find our GTSs get ridden much more often than our other PTWs because they are so fun to ride. Enjoy!

Welcome to MV and feel free to lurk away! You will find they are a blast to ride. Any of us here that also have larger bikes I'm sure all agree that one of the most fun things is to get on the Vespa after riding a larger bike for a bit. They feel as light as a feather, incredibly nimble and spunkier than you think.

Welcome to MV from San Antonio Marty!

Why lurk? We'd love to hear what you have to say and learn from your experiences.

Congrats on the GTS (we love pictures). Where in NJ you from? Used to live in the Dover/Randolph area years ago.

Always nice to see a newbie join from NJ. I've been to High Point and Cape May on my bikes, along with most points in between. Happy trails and welcome.
